    Did you see the Google Logo Today?

    Today Google is commemorating the 30th anniversary of Pac-Man with a special logo today. Here's a static picture of it, but you should see the real one...it's animated.

    My wife nearly panicked when that came up. I'm always accusing her (rightly) of clicking on stuff loaded with bots and buggies. I made her feel guilty when this came up.
    It was a good feeling.

    Here's another video showing the logo in action. It's actually a playable game.

    I use google like 1000 times a day for work, but I never go to the home page. A friend pointed it out and I was hooked for about 5 minutes! Clever people those googles....

    One of my office mates pointed out that it was a working game. I started one, but I found it impossible to play without a joy stick. Just couldn't get the hang of the arrow buttons. Jim.

    I dumped my share of quarters into Pac-Man consoles, but Defender was my game. Spent a lot of hours at the 7-11 hooked into one of those machines.
