Did anyone here see "FlikFX", the April Fool's Joke from Widescreen Museum?

    I did an HTF search for "FlikFX" and came up empty. I sure never saw any mention of this a month ago.
    But I ran across this today in, of all places, the official Jim Taylor DVD FAQ while seeing what has been updated lately! He clearly implies it as less-than-serious, but doesn't state outright that this is a *JOKE* (since April 1st 2002 is listed as the release date for a FlikFX version of Lawrence of Arabia on Pg. 4 of the joke section).

    Ah, I went back and saw the ©1999 mark on it. Since the "release" date was listed as April 1, 2002, I was fooled into thinking that this was a new thing!

    Well, it was new to me! Sorry to present old stuff as new, guys.

    Definitely funny though! I hadn't seen it before.
