LOL James! Well, I've been wanting warm weather, and my wishes never happen. Oh well, still plenty of time. Heck, I haven't even been able to start my garden yet, which is bugging me.

It's been the same here. Frosts only a couple of weeks ago. High of 26.5C yesterday and a low of just 13C overnight. Today looks set to be another beautiful day.

Trouble with the weather here, it switches from cold to hot and back so quickly you never get used to it!

Ah, pac-man! I was a master.

So was I, But that was near 30 years ago for Me. :D


Same here. Played pac-man and asteroids for hours on end. That was back in the days when almost every town had an arcade.

We even had our own pool-hall that was like something out of the 1920's. Spittoons all over the place and a secret poker room in the back with a hidden entrance. I never got to see inside the poker room though, kids weren't allowed.

Good Morning, Playing pac-man for hours on end, Ya must have been really perplexed. ;)

I was never very good at PacMan. I didn't have the patience to the learn the patterns. I was much better at reflex games and simulators. It didn't help either way. After thirty years and countless quarters squandered in arcades, my kids define my gaming ability as "pathetic noob."

Sitting here, like Andy, in the sun with temperatures @ 25c for the second day.

Been a lovely sunny week so far.

Now we just need to get outside a cold pint of Landlord.
It's good to be back amongst friends and colleagues

Only the second sunny day here, but 27C is very welcome for a change.

I've had to turn the A/C on as it was over 30C in my living room a short time ago! - A far cry from not being able to keep it warm all Winter :D

I played It at home on the computer, But then I couldn't see spending endless amounts of quarters, When I had an Atari 400, Pac-Man comes on Cartridge, Plug It in to the cartridge port, plug a joystick in, power up the TV, then the Atari 400(or an 800 if one had one) and It's game on. :D

Also It seems some people are complaining, They think that Google was hacked, What a laugh, Google hacked?

Yes indeed. I was obsessed until they started putting a time limit on how long we could play on one quarter.

I guess you don't remember when Google was hacked by the Chinese government along with several other big corporations. Google in return hacked the hackers and found proof of the hacks but not enough proof to verify it was condoned by the Chinese Government, only that it came from mainland China. But knowing China has it's own Government run and highly trained team of hackers is good enough for me.

Yeah, Well I think Google learned something from that. In any case, Pac-Man on Google won't exist forever, Google will do something else eventually, They always do.

First time I've noticed a game though. I'm sure they've had others I didn't know about.

Speaking of games, I did a search for Mario and found a free game almost identical to Super Mario for PC's. I've spent most of the day playing it. Pretty cool..
