Pocket Pool Anyone?

So, while you’re wasting your company’s bandwidth sneaking around the Web with your Ghostzilla and spying on people’s search queries at Metaspy, you just have to have some games to play, right? I mean, what’s slacking off, if you’re not devoting your brain power to putting the black queen on the red king?

“But isn’t playing zee Minesweeper and zee Solitaire a bit obvious, Meester Solinore? I do not wish to be excommunicated from my job, sir.”

Fear not, yon slackweed! For, by the miracle of modern computer programming, you can even play Pacman beneath the noses of your cubemate!

“But who? wha? how?”

Stay your bewildered yammering, my friend, and go to Tiny Windows Games. For there, you will find teensy weensy versions of classic games. Pool, chess, tennis, breakout, Donkey Kong, Frogger. They even have Asteroids! mmmm…. Asteroids…

“This is eencredible! I can now rot my brain on company time without even going to a department meeting. How may we ever repay you, Meester Solinore?”

You can’t.

    Oh. My. Gawd! What’s with showing me all the great time-wasters lately?? Like I’m not already in hot water at work!? OK, I’m not, but get me hooked on too many of these fun things to do besides work and I soon will be! 😉

    All I see are teeny tiny little green dots now…

    (This post might have been more coherent, except that I’m blind from staring at that tiny little game for far too long.)

    hmmmmmmm, it’s 1AM, and he talks about Asteroids…

    Yeah, maybe if I had super sight!! I suck at regular sized asteroids and pool. Tiny anything…. well, we just won’t go there.

    I forgot to mention that you can use a command-line startup switch to make the window bigger. For example, you can say ‘tinyasteroids 512’ to make a 512 x 512 window that’s much more playable.
