    WTH is up with Google?!?

    I have 3 tabs open and locked as my homepage: this forum on one, one of my E-Mail accounts on the second and Google search page as the third. I clicked "Home" and was about to start browsing my favorite forum on the net and suddenly I hear the theme to Pac Man playing through my laptop speakers.

    I freaked a little and hit Fcn/F3 to shut off my wireless connection and then opened the Task Master to see if there were any strange processes running (thought I got infected).

    It turns out Google replaced their logo with a little Pac Man game complete with sound. Blood pressure was up just a little for a couple of minutes. Good for a laugh now, but I wish Google would not tug my heartstrings like that...

    It's a full blown pac man game, to celebrate pacman's 30th birthday

    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    Google has just about made me decide to switch to someone else for search engine. They have forced the "Everything" bar on us and I don't like it one bit. I don't like being forced to do, see or use anything.
    I am consistently on record and will continue to be on record as opposing concealed carry.

    30 years. I am getting old. I remember having the Pac Man watch. Got me through many a boring Junior High class.

    Tally, look at www.dogpile.com.

    That is awesome. I can play Pac-Man Google style. I wasted a lot of quaters and time on Pac-Mac in the 80's. I made it to the 1st act for the fun of it.
