Are you still waiting for it to load? I gave up.

Or is that the point?

Damn, tommasz, you stole my joke. I've been sitting here for 10 minutes, and all I've seen is the title scroll slowly up. Is something supposed to happen?

Huh, wow, it's loading for me (in IE, can't test Mozilla until I get home).

it loads for me in firefox. I can't get it to throw consistently after catching...

Well crap. It does take some practice.

Ummm, catch the paper balls (move mouse + left click) then throw them into the wastebasket (move mouse + release click). Hitting an airplane is extra points.

What paper balls, what wastebasket. It doesn't do anything

Ok, well, it doesn't load for me in Mozilla, but works just fine in IE. Sorry. Nothing to see here. Move along. Please hope me.

Wow, nice load screen.

I clicked the link, saw that it was loading oh so slowly, went to lunch, came back, it's still loading... I give up.

Wait. A while. Loading takes a long time.

That's cool (after a 15min DL over cable), but I keep having problems with the mouse leaving the Flash frame, and cutting out the arm control. (I understand why it happens--it just makes it too frustrating to bother after a while.)

So not worth it.

10k/s. Is their server on a modem connection?

I can't believe I waited all that time and then clicked on a link (not realizing the animation was the actual game) only to take me to a separate page that took just as long to load.

I'm enjoying my game of snooker too much to try something new.

Same happened to me Destro. It's a bit buggy - on loading it froze on me, and the pointer thing's a bit annoying - but I enjoyed that.

I'm so sorry. It loads for me really fast here at work (sshhh. . .), but I did experience the crawling load time y'all are talking about when I ran home for lunch.

Strike one.

I quite liked that. 1865 was my top.

That snooker game doesn't look too bad.
