THE NOSTALGIA CLOCK...WOW...




Unless you were a "high techy" back in the 70s, this may mean nothing to you but this was a tad intriguing to me because I actually had the original pong game on my TV when my baby girls were babies...Em was a fetus actually...and we thought we rocked the block...and we did...



The Nostalgia Clock

Bored at work? Clock-watching just got a lot more interesting.

Dutch design team Buro Vormkrijgers have recently developed a prototype of a Pong clock. While this game of pong randomly plays, the so called players score the time. The left player scores the hours, and the right player scores the minutes.

For those who can’t wait for the release of the final version of the clock, the screensaver version is available from the team’s website.

Oh, we hang Pong too! Not only did we think it was the cat's meow, when my mom would leave for work and take the cable adapter with her, we would rig Pong up to the television is such a way that we were able to watch most of the programming we got with the cable adapter. Shhh. . .my mom still doesn't know how we did it!

So tell me, what all have you blamed on the IH's thus far? I've got some serious stacks of paper in the "office" that the IH's just keep stacking up.

And the clothes they keep dirtying- well, it's nearly obscene. Lots and lots of mileage from this one.

I think the IH pee on my carpet...my dog would NEVER do that.
