Super Grub Boot Disk April fools joke got me. Fake deletion & error

Normally, it boots up to a menu of options. This time it pretends to delete the hard drive and Linux partitions. It said partition msdos 8 or something like that had an error and asked if you wanted to delete it. Even if you said no, it starts doing the fake deletion. Then made fun of the Linux. Ha Ha you have Linux. I should of waited for it to say "April Fools"

When I booted up windows back up, I saw the date and said (censored) it is April first. It program to do that on April 1st ever year. This joke is possible listed in the source file.

Good one Super Grub Boot Disk developers.

The reason it got me. I know there are real April fools viruses that can cause pretty bad damages. I should of known better, it impossible to write to a dvd after it all written if the disk is not re-writable.
