Malaysian open source provocateur gets punk'd

My friend Dinesh sauntered into his office on April Fool's Day to discover he was a victim..

His entire room was wrapped in tin foil - including his desk, chairs, wastepaper basket, PCs, notebook, mouse, picture frames, awards, files, in-tray, mug, ashtray, lighter, every cable, socket and plug - even the loose change.

The floor, walls and window frames were covered in brown paper and, later, he discovered, his car had been done the dishonour as well.

Read the story by Leslie Lau on The Malaysian Insider - The day Malaysia's No 1 hacker got punk'd and the account by the plotting rebel "Sith minions" and watch their Star Wars' inspired Youtube video.
