Stick out tongue Purple Dragon

I was a bit confused while working on my A2000 today because the boot menu cursor had changed to a purple dragon. I had no idea what to make of it, and it took me a good while to find the answer:

"A purple dragon pointer replaces the normal OS pointer in the Amiga Early Startup Control Screen (boot menu) when the AmigaOS system date is set to March 30th"

I had the same, had been fiddling with my A1200 during the evening, booting into early-startup quite often, and suddenly I had a purple dragon - just past midnight
