SavvyRoo April Fools’ Day Prank 2014


I renamed our website SavvyRoo to SavvyMoo. Here is a screenshot:

We had just rebranded the site to SavvyRoo a few weeks earlier. It seemed like a waste to never again use the code that I had written so that the site could run on two different domains with different branding.

I really enjoyed writting all the cow puns.

On an interesting technical note, I figured out how to implement a redirect for SavvyMoo.com such that it would always redirect to SavvyRoo.com except on April Fools’ Day:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{TIME} 20140402000000
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://savvyroo.com/ [L,R=301]
