    Cool.

    Here is the photo folks.

    I am officially, a King.

    Then again someone could beat the record... :)

    The whole thing lasted around an hour and a half to two hours.

    And, I know, the picture is a little big, and I do not mean to insult the people with dial-up (including Yours Truly), but I used the Least Quality .jpeg export under Appleworks and I could not get the picture any smaller.

    My fault on that guys. But it is real.

    2 hours!

    I can't even imagine having that much free time. You're in college. Why didn't you have sex instead? Much better use of time!

    seems like a waste of time to me...

    you could've resized the picture. that, more than file size, is what was a bit of a pain

    Re: 2 hours!

    Easy, big guy.

    I originally started this as a question to see if I was allowed to send this record to a website. Then I posted the photo just in case there were some in disbelief.

    Besides, the top prize for the contest is $30. chmorley, if you want to send in your record and spend two hours with that money to get some yourself, knock yourself out. Otherwise, if you care less, why post?

    Re: Question regarding sending iPod Breakout score...

    Wow, great score. You truly do have some skills at that game (and a lot of patience). Are those SCRATCHES all over your screen? :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:
    Your iPod is starting to look like my old Gameboy!

    Yes, I entered and I am not an Apple Student Developer. My score was 1039, just from fooling around in BIO class.

    Current top score is 1505. You probably won $30, unless someone else has more time than you.
    LOL! A wink's as good as a nod to a blind bat! Eh! Wink, wink, nudge, nudge, say no more!

    Any time's a good time for [women]. ;)

    It was just a joke. Glad someone got it.

    Nice MP reference, BTW.

    $30 for 2 hours? No.

    Exactly. Time=Money.

    $15/hour isn't TOO bad, plus recognition for a high score. But since you aren't even guaranteed to be the high scorer anyway, I personally wouldn't do it.

    (Then again, how many countless hours have I spent in this forum with absolutely no pay whatsoever? Heheheh... :p )

    Can you pause the game and come back to it?

    Yes, you can. But there's a catch-- the pause takes like 5 seconds of holding the play/pause button.

    This function isn't really useful on the higher levels, as you'll probably lose a life for sure. If you do a successful pause, make sure that your paddle is positioned to hit the ball when you start your pod back up.

    If you really want to set a personal best score, try not to pause the game unless it is absolutely necessary. I tried pausing the game (successfully) and restarted it hours later and I immediately lost my train of thought. You really need to go level by level continuously without interruptions to keep your concentration.

    That is what I did. I am still waiting for my email of Congratulations from the guys I sent the photo to.

    How did I know this would be a thread started by you, Cobra? You're a Breakout freak! Top score.

    Oh, and make the picture a bit bigger next time. It didn't quite fill up my 24" at 2500x1875 :)

    chmorley - that's the funniest post I've read all week. Funny stuff! :D
