IF you don't believe me, download the block and see for yourself:

Some time ago I was working with Guy Ziv's advanced display text block for NXT-G. I noticed something rather strange. everytime I selected the block, something appeared in the "display preview window" I couldn't see it properly, it is only there for a fraction of a second, a short flash. I managed to take a screenshot, and I was utterly surprised...


I saw a bald eagle!
I'm not shure wether this is a weird glitch, or a "easter egg" planted in by Guy.
strange...

My excuses:
endeed the block is made by Guy Ziv.
Andreas Dreier designed some fonts for it. Hence the mistake.
Sorry!

Very funny trick...

I know it's not real.

You just took a snapshot of the NXT-G program
and added the eagle which was a totally different picture.

0.3 seconds?

I E-mailed guy ziv about this, but I haven't got a response yet...
