One thing on everyone's Christmas list: POPUPS!

Posted on December 21, 2004

If you are going to be away from your computer for an extended period of time during the holidays, you may want to check out a site before you go.

My cousin showed me the game Realistic Internet Simulator, otherwise known as Kill The Popups, by Rob Manuel. The comical game flashes popups all over the screen, and the contestant must quickly hit the close button within each window. An accidental click on the popup itself produces even more popups, until the screen fills up and finally shows the blue Windows boot screen.

I've had a lot of practice at closing popups, so I had to lose on purpose after clicking 105. It's not a hard game, but it worth checking out, especially with the music on. Oh, and I don't need any popups for Christmas ... I've already been taken care of.
