Poseidon April Fools

As its first day of April, I noticed that the Amigas running Poseidon USB are renaming connected USB devices to random objects such as "Nuclear Fission Reactor" and "Hair dryer". Anyone else notice this in PoPo and Trident?

Nice one!
He really has a great sense of humour, some of the messages that come up when poseidon goes online are pretty funny too.

Hmm, perhaps I should take inspiration from Chris Hodges and add some seasonal messages inside EasyADF and EasyNet

Hey Amigakit, are you really sure you didn't call it Washing machine... and the rest?

Perhaps what you want is just to show you beautiful WB...

There was this mouse software I had on my 500, measured how far the mouse had moved and other stuff, on the 1st of april, it made the mouse move all wrong, reversed the buttons too, was confusing at first, then funny.
