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.

  1. Cool…Never I thought of comparing two same revisions. Great found. Strange is the fact, noone has posted ever about this…atleast I have not seen any blog posting abt this. Great find.

  3. So that’s what all the updates are for? “Hey guys, we’ve got a wicked important update in the trunk. Everyone should upgrade immediately.”

    It is cool, though.

  4. Okey that scared the crap out of me, my name is Adam, so that was creepy, thou I have gotten that before but not from comparing 2 revisions, dunno where about i got it…

  5. Good one! I’ve seen that a couple of times but was never sure what I’d done to trigger it… maybe always trying to do a dozen things at once wasn’t such a good plan 🙂

  6. 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

  8. 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.
