    i've just gone onto a little tennis game that has been made on the BBC website.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/tennis/tardis_tennis/default.stm

    underneath the game screen it says that mac osx will experience performance problems?!?! i didn't have any problems, has anyone tried it and had problems?

    i hate these messages that appear under web games when osx is perfectly capable of playing them.

    This game was up on the Beeb's site last year too – had quite a bit of fun with it last summer. If I remember rightly, there was a strange OS X bug in that it would crash Safari if you played it with the sound on. I might have to give it another go – just to see if the bug's fixed, you understand. :)

    I had no problems whatsoever except the slow load times... But its because I had to download the sounds..

    The game works super for me too. Except it's either really hard, or I'm really bad.

    Hooray for Wimbleton

    It's all working fine for me now, too – sound and all. Whether they've tweaked the game or it was just a conflict with Jaguar/Panther I don't know.

    Thanks for the blast from the past, noodle. :)
