I guess we'll first have a video where Dave does a tour and shows his minions working in every department doing mailbag items (including the Dundee knife), dumpster diving, equipment teardowns (including Dave's coffee maker), skate boarding on solar roadways... did I forget something?
There are small lies, big lies and then there is what is on the screen of your oscilloscope.

Why would it be a joke? Dave has made absolutely millions from his Youtube videos, the monthly rental on that place is like pocket money for him!  It'll just take him a few days to move everything in to the new space and sort the decorating out.  :popcorn:

Not to mention all the money from the back alley deals with Big Battery!

Using Google street view to look down the road where that Altium place is located, everything seems to be for sale or for lease. Must be a real black spot.

That's because it's a business park built away from transport links and population centres. Apart from the hardware store in the area, everything else is pretty quiet there.
Was it really supposed to do that?

 Oh course. There has been a long tradition at least in past electronic magazines of the past era to publish a realistic sounding story that was not so outlandish as to be totally unbelievable, but if true a real zinger of a story. This tradition has spread to the internet as magazines are pretty much a thing of the past.

If this were intended as an April Fools joke, then posting the video on the 31st of March makes this an ultimate fail.  :palm: :palm: :palm:

We didn’t win the lottery although we did manage to get three out of the six numbers correct on a randomly selected ticket called a quick pick, no prize at all unfortunately.... :wtf:

At the risk of taking liberty and speaking for other here, I/ we promote only responsible gambling practices, beer and strippers are a different can of worm’s altogether.... :P

ie time zones

FYI you can set your forum "clock" under your profile to be the same time as Dave's.  I found this to be more useful (maybe not fall for a date fool) than my own local time, so I just re-set mine to Sidney time.

The problem with YT April Fools joke - is for years people will be driving to that building to meet Dave.  I can just imagine how many will drive around it looking for a way to get in.  And future occupants will have to post a sign about this.

We moved to a new floor with 3 times more space. It only took about 6 months until we ran out of space again. No change in personnel count.
You know, since you have all the space, you can run more projects. (no you cannot)

There are several variants of Murphy's Laws that have this common concept:

"[Whatever the subject] ... expands to fit whatever space is available, so that more space is always required."

Dave is in Australia, not Austria
Austria = Big moutans + snow
Australia = Cangoroos + a big dessert like area

Winter in Australia is the time when Dave switches from bare feet to sandals ;)

It's a lot worse than that. It's when I switch from shorts to jeans (mostly).
