Way, way back in the FD1.6 release notes there was mention of an easter egg. I spent a bit of time making foolish key combinations on the about box (based on memories of the IE4 easter egg) but I got tired of that pretty quickly. However during the FD2.0 alpha I found out what the secret is (it’s very sneaky) 😉
You may not believe it, but 5 weeks ago when Nick left a comment about suggested screenshots I immediately went out and took them. And they’ve been sitting on my desktop ever since, reminding me occasionally that I really should post them.
Nick has already spoiled the details but I thought I’d post the screenshots anyway – look at his post for details on how to access the easter egg.
It’s been a while since I saw an easter egg like this that wasn’t in a game, and this one is very cool as well as superbly hidden. Nicely done Nick!
