The second link uses pop ups.

So? Go find a good popup killer that doesn't kill everything.

The first link claims to only support IE. Fuck him.

Yeah. Just for a bit of fun a chap builds a non-profit web site on his own time and money, and has the audacity to make it so it doesn't work in your browser of choice. Outrageous. There should be a law against it.

But we've never met!!

Hi; first of all thanks to ginz for linking to my site!
I'm sorry scrollbars doesn't support anything but IE properly, I keep meaning to write cross-browser code for it but I keep getting sidetracked by work and new stuff. One day...
I have no excuse for the popups except that it seemed a nice way of showing the pics individually. I'm just plain evil, I suppose.
By the way, ace site, keep up the good work.

We'll leave you two alone now.

somehow the simplest games are the most addictive. I remember the day I used to play horseracing games on a green monochrome screen on my old Fujitsu.

/-\o denoted horse.

Man, I can't win at the horse races and I can't even get a positive....wait...go 2 go 2!! YAY! I only have -1 now.

Maybe salmacis would prefer that tomsk used frames instead of popups ;)

This was a cool link, and in my opinion much better than another post about current events.

I enjoyed both links, though some of the pop-ups in the second link are not necessarily work safe. :D

Tomsk, is it weighted against the horse you bet on? the blue one went fifteen rounds without winning a single damned race, and I let it all ride on him the entire time. I've lost everything but my pride.

Nope, not weighted at all, totally random, in theory.
The management accept no responisiblity for loss or psychological damage arising from use of scrollbar racing etc. etc.
