Del día 27, eso por un lado. Y por otro, los guiris el "dia de los
inocentes" lo celebran el 1 de Abril, y Dalnet también. Precisamente, la
"inocentada" de este año en la lista de Dalnet fue que Microsoft había
comprado el Bahamut. Y para que veas que no me lo invento, rebuscando en mis
archivos de la lista de Dalnet, aparece esta curiosa inocentada enviada el 1
de Abril de este año :)
