I wasn't entirely sure where to post this but, I figured if they're games, they might as well go here.

Anyways, for those of you with a mac, I'll bet you didn't know about the games lurking hidden in your Opperating System.  They're embeded into the UNIX OS and, include such favorites as tetris, snake, pong, etc.   To find them, type "ls /usr/share/emacs/21.2/lisp/play".  That will give you a list of all the games.  To play them, type in "emacs".  Then hit "esc" once or twice and, hold "esc" and "x".  The cursor should jump to the bottom of the window.  Then, type in "tetris" or "Snake" or any of the listed games and have fun.

BTW, it took me 15 minutes to beat dunnet........7 days first time I tried it.

I dug around with the "ls -a" command in various folders.  After a few weeks of doing that, I found them.


That and, I had heard rumors about it but, never thought to use google.
