to create Starcraft versions of all my favorite games. THe best was Mechwarrior II: Mercenaries, Starcraft Edition. Holy crap that had a lot of triggers.

Anyhow, point is, I'm sure the wizards at google can come up with a way. Maybe you have to find what you were searching for before the Zergling rush.

...it made me long for the old days when I could while away my time at work playing Free Cell.  Oh wait, mgoblog is today's equivalent of Free Cell.

This is surprisingly awesome. Nice work by google. They should do this kind of stuff more often, and I'm sure they will now. This, my friends, is the future.

Google's overlord behavior was getting me down, they throw something totally awesome like Pac Man into the mix.  You are forgiven, overlords. Please continue stealing packets from those who don't protect their networks.

I got my son one of those $20 game controllers at Target that has many of my favorite arcade games from the '80s: Pacman, Galaga, Pole Position, a several others. Hard to believe that what once required a huge console for a single game is now in a hand-held unit with about 10 more.

And, even though Wii, xBox and PS3 are just awesome, there's something very simple and familiar about the old games that are almost more fun to play.

This involved taping a thin string (sweing string) to a case quarter and slowly lowering the quarter in the machine while still holding on to the string.

Once you would hear the quarter register, you would keep pulling the string back to let it register again until you had an insaine amount of credits, you pull the string and the quarter drops in.

If you got away with it...you played like a king, if you got caught you were kicked out, banned from that place for a very long time!, sometimes worse!

good times, good times!

Also, anybody else aware of the "perfect pac-man" guy?  I think they made a movie about him.
