WordPress 2.6 Easter Egg

This is new to me, even though others have known about it for months. There’s a Matrix Easter Egg in WordPress 2.6 and in the betas of WordPress 2.7. To activate it:

  1. Edit a post.
  2. Scroll down to the revisions section of the page and click the latest revision.
  3. On the next page, scroll down again and select the same revision for comparison.
  4. The Matrix has you..

Danger !
Self-comparison detected.
Initiating infinite loop eschewal protocol.
Self destruct in… 3
Wake up, Donncha…
The Matrix has you…
Don’t let this happen again. Go Back.

That was neat. Of course I had to try it myself. However, if I hadn’t read about it here first, it would have scared the crap out of me.

Hi all in this galaxy!

Indeed Matrix it is…
We in Matrix all are 🙂

When outside Earth Matrix… Matrix II you are in…
Yoda wander and wonder about matrix’es

May the force be with us all

Well, it wasn’t very funny for some seconds there when I hit the comparison button by mistake… the page went totally black and the matrix font started typing something on my screen…i thought my server was under attack or something.
