Morning Panic
Anybody out there remember Apple Panic? Too early for this crowd?

That's not what I wanted to mention. I wanted to mention that if you're doing that NetFlix thing, and you've got a slow connection, you might find yourself opening up your queue and waiting for it to load. That's fine, you're used to that. You might then decide to fiddle with the rating widgets that have already loaded. That might be a bad idea, because that will interrupt the load. This isn't a terrible thing on its own, but it does cause a problem if you make changes to your (half-loaded) queue, and then submit those changes.

I, for example, blew away half of my queue this morning this way. Fortunately, it all came back (after, perhaps because of, a desperate email I sent to NetFlix).

Be careful out there, kids.

Brat boy, my 10 year old, has decided you are the coolest adult ever!

Don't really remember Apple Panic, I was far more into King's Quest, the original Castlevainia, and of course, pac-man (which I still play on my game-boy).

It's interesting to me to look at these games - Apple Panic, which I recall as being so very simple, came out in 1981, and Gyruss, which I just posted about, came out in 1983. Granted, there's a home computer / arcade gap there, but even if you look at the arcade games of 1981, you can see a huge amount of growth that happened in a short time in the early eighties.

you are the coolest adult ever Woohoo!

Dude. I've had my queue blown more times that I'd care to admit.

I'm fast on the email to customer service.
