WIKIPEDIA tells us that an easter egg is "an intentional hidden message" and one of the most famous ones for Vocera is to issue the command "good bye" to genie to which you will hear the reply "live long and prosper." There are several built into Vocera, but they are all responses to certain commands like the one mentioned above.
If you want to try out a few easter eggs, try commanding genie with these:
- good bye
- beam me up
- beam me down
- shut up
Are we good on what an easter egg is?
Funny genie is something different, when a user says "turn funny genie on" it enables an alternate set of prompts, instead of Jean or Mark saying
Sometimes people think this is far to much fun and distracting so they want it all switched off. The good news for those people is that after 4.0sp3 the funny genie can be disabled, good news for the fun lovers is that easter eggs can't be removed or disabled.
If you need to kill funny genie you can read the some old RELEASE NOTES and find the procedure:
Fixed: Cannot turn off the funny genie.
A new SysFunnyGenie property, which enables the funny genie, has been added to the server and is set to
trueby default. (Issue 5876)
To turn off the funny genie, add the following property to \vocera\server\Properties.txt on all Vocera Servers and then restart the servers:
SysFunnyGenie = false
So there you go, if you have any questions (or easter eggs to add to the list) please post them in the comments section!
