    I Can't Find The Coin Slot On My Pc!


    EDIT: I just read Hook's post about clicking 'Insert Coin' and actually playing the game. I guess I'll see you guys tomorrow!!! ;)

    Post Script: It has 256 levels. Press 'Insert Coin' twice for 2-player action (use WASD keys).

    Love it, although as Mi An says, the complaints are justified.

    Google FINALLY muted the sound on the PacMan logo. (THANK YOU!) Click Insert Coin & you get the sound. I found this tidbit, too: Click the 'insert coin' button twice & you get Pacman AND Ms. Pacman!

    Whoa. My brain isn't wired for independently controlled pacpeople. :eek:

    I wonder how much productivity was down today either by people trying to figure out how to stop the !@#$%$#'n music or by those playing Pacman...

    I hardly ever hit the Google homepage; w/ various FF add-ons I have a search box toolbar, and if I highlight a word on a web page, I can right-click & search for it with Google, so I don't go(ogle)-home :D

    EDIT: sorry, not mean to be rude --

    HAPPY 3000 S.R.!

    I do the same thing in IE, Rick. I'm just sayin'... Actually, I don't remember the last time I saw the Google home page.

    Of course, I don't do games, either. If I had one pop up on my screen, I might very well scrub that site and all references to it from my digital life forevermore. I'd ditched otherwise decent sites for pop-up ads and, for me, an unrequested game is the same thing.

    I know... I'm a freak of nature. And I honestly don't care. :D

    It wasn't actually a pop up, it was a commemorative logo for Pacman's 30th birthday. Like all their commemerative logos it was very creatiive. They just made a miscalculation on the sound. :)

    This is why people love google even though it's a ginormous soulless corporation that will eventually buy and sell people like commodities: because it doesn't act like your average ginormous (random thought: how does my spell check not have a problem with "ginormous"?) soulless corporation. I can't think of anyone google-sized that would do something this cool. Sometimes they act like the programmers around the corner and that definitely takes the edge off.

    And how cool is it that someone Google-sized actually paid attention to the noise complaints and fixed it same day? I mean yeah, it should have never happened, but most companies that sized filter issues so many times they rarely get fixed at all ever, much less within hours.
