TH is a tech site and this is tech. Not to mention most people on here are nerds and find this very amusing.

The roombas have sensors that stop them from running into walls, so i wonder if they could just let "Pacman" wander on its own and see if it runs away from the "Ghost" when one gets too near. They could make it an autonomous Pacman game

Did anyone notice pac-man bumping into one of the others when he was returning to starting position right at the end? May be they need to program pac-man to avoid those squares when heading for home.

You know, this goes to show you that what they say about kids imitating video games isn't true. I mean, this is one of the oldest ones out there, and if that was true kids would be running around in dark rooms munching on pills and listening to repetitive electronic music.

Wait...never mind.

Does youtube have a max-bandwidth-per-video or something? I have a 25mb connection from Cox and currently-popular youtube vids always stop to buffer every few seconds.
