    Google Pac-Man

    Most of us will probably (if briefly) have spotted the Homage to Pac-Man on the Google home page at the end of last week.

    You may not be aware (I wasn't until I read a PC Pro blog post) that it is still playable at Google

    Great for a few minutes relaxation at lunch time, but perhaps one to be aware of for the block list in ICT lessons.

    I bet a few already have copies of the game on their memory sticks by now...

    I thought the team would have been on to it BTW I haven't heard anything more from our lot on the publications act issue Tom so Nile got that one sorted as well Give that man a pay rise (so long as my renewals don't go up to fund it!)
