One the reasons that NIWeek 2007 was the Best NIWeek Ever was that we found out about a new easter egg (hidden feature) in LabVIEW 8.5.

Enter “SuperFunkyPrivateSpecialSecretForumStuff=LAVA” into your LabVIEW.ini file and you will see the LabVIEW Advanced Virtual Architects (LAVA) logo on your LabVIEW 8.5 splash screen :)


[UPDATE] Here is the t-shirt that inspired the easter egg (order your own LAVA t-shirt, here — and many more styles, here.):

    Can you post a picture of the LAVA shirt, so folks can see where this config token came from?

    Christina: Great idea. I’ve just posted a picture of the LAVA shirt and a link to where they can purchase it :)

    Matt: Yes, we’re lucky to have some very passionate LAVA members on the LabVIEW R&D team ;)
