April fools day and I am searching and searching for that computer joke
The one where the user is told to stare at the screen, see if they can identify changes, and then is either spooked by "the scream" or a big ape?

Do you know where I can find this link?

Try this. It's really quite amazing. Try not to cheat by looking at the answer. Stare at the following and see if you can find the hidden image...

You'll be quite amazed when it comes into view.

(start as close to the screen as you can and then move back about 30 cm)

Remember what you saw and scroll down to the bottom for the answer. If you had trouble and didn't see it, try getting closer to the screen and relax your eyes.

Scroll down to compare the answer to what you saw It's.........



NOTHING, you idiot, get back to work. I can't believe you fell for that one. I hope someone walked by and witnessed you with your nose against the monitor!
