Near the end of the work day, to kill time, I find myself playing windows games.
I was just now playing Minesweeper and got my best ever time, 146, on the expert level.
Does anyone else play these games?

I think I've only finished the Expert level 3 times, the best of those in 315 seconds. I have cleared the Intermediate board in 59 seconds...

what in the world was the game?!? I spent a few seconds just "twinking" with it and got a score of 6000.

And missileman, father, you have too much time on your hands. I cannot get that score on the intermediate. I have yet to get through the expert stage! The fastest I have ever gone through that is 1 second. And that was by clicking "custom", entering 100 squares by 100 and typing in 10 mines!

I do Minesweeper custom config. I max out the size and put 100 mines. If I finish, I go to 110 mines, etc. No time, just win, or lose and start over.

Solitaire, I do time. With a thumbwheel I can get under 100 seconds on a winning game. I speed-play Othello too, but the computer is too slow at 12 look-ahead expert level. Still, I average 48 out of 64 in a two minute game. (I played my Apple II version against this "expert". The Apple was faster, and won.)

yeah, I just woke up. must be tired because I cannot get better than 3 seconds on custom. uggg. what is this world comming to?!?
Well, my best times on minesweeper is
18 secs-beginners
101-intermediate.
Always trying to improve on those. But, again, it does require a lot of mental work...and sometimes my mind does not work.
