12:56 pm: Google-Man!
Has Google gone all Pac-Man for everyone?

Or is it just me?

Everyone... and its playable. Pacman turns 30 today. I guess we can no longer trust him.

Ah! I thought it was a plot to keep me from working.

(Yeah, I had discovered the playability. I also turned off all my daughter's Chinese sites that happened to be open before I thought to check my Google window, while looking for the source of the strange noises.)

Every time Google does something special and inexplicable with its homepage, I mouse over it, and the text pops up explaining it... (usually an anniversary).

Oh, me, too...but this time the text didn't come up until after I lost the game, and I hadn't played that far when I posted. ;-)

I had serious trouble getting that tool tip this morning.

It seemed kind of obvious, but I wanted to check.

The Empire Strikes Back turns 30 today as well. Coincidence?

Pac man fever!

I will have to show this to my friends' daughter. Although she has never seen the game, from a young age, I've pretended to "play" Pacman with her, complete with sound effects.

On long car trips, she begs me to play with her in this way.

That is so cool (although trying to play it with the mouse is difficult -- it was always challenging enough with a joystick controller). It sure brings back memories.

aaaagh it was all over twitter yesterday and it was driving me nuts

How am I supposed to be cynical and witty when everyone's Paccin' it up?

Yes! I used to be so good at that game, but no longer. 'Twas fun, though.

Ms. Pac Man was the only game of that kind I ever played more than manybe once. I wasn't very good, but I loved it.
