The site is www.miniclip.com and they are the first site Ive seen with fun free games to play and short clips that dont have adverts everywhere. So if your bored you might wanna check it out - some very cool stuff! It will keep you busy and you wont do as many stupid pointless things while bored biggrin Enjoy!

Heh, Slick - surely the point of that site is so you end up doing silly boring things to fill in your boring extra time?

biggrin Playing little internet games should only be done in office hours.. or in lectures, or lessons. Don't blame it on me when your caught though razz

Heh...

This provides a somewhat peculiar mind boggler. Took me about five minutes to figure out how it was done. See if you can figure out how.

http://www.freewebs.com/rustynfilm/images/gamescore2.jpg
See if this works.

and remember.... i beat that score by .1
i just got to lazy to take a screen shot and post it..

Yeah it is pretty funny that the only proof is images. Oh well.

i can see it, u got 323.4 - same as pooky...

You just need to copy and paste the link into a new window, i think the server the picture is opened on tries to open the picture in a new window (because it's been pasted onto a different site) but FXHome tries to open it in a new window too, so it gets confused. Either that or it's a way of stopping you posting stuff on other sites, like the way geocities just stops the image working...

I can only get 319.8 before i gave up and closed it...
