The Internet Arcade, A Large Collection of Coin-Operated Arcade Games Playable in a Web Browser

Published by:

Internet Arcade

The Internet Arcade is a large collection of coin-operated arcade games hosted by the Internet Archive that are playable in a web browser. The collection, which specifically features coin-operated video games from the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s and is operated by Jason Scott, currently plays best when using Firefox.

The game collection ranges from early “bronze-age” videogames, with black and white screens and simple sounds, through to large-scale games containing digitized voices, images and music. Most games are playable in some form, although some are useful more for verification of behavior or programming due to the intensity and requirements of their systems.

Rescued California Cat Sets the New World Record for Cat with the Longest Fur

Published by:

Sophie - Longest Fur

Sophie Smith, a gorgeous rescue cat in Oceanside, California, has been declared the Guinness World Record Holder for the longest fur on a cat, beating the previous record set by the late great Colonel Meow by more than an inch. Sophie’s human Jami Smith tells how she came to live with the long-haired beauty.

“I was out walking my dog one Sunday afternoon when a truck drove up with a couple of guys in it,” Smith said. “They stopped and held a small paper bag out of the window and asked if I wanted a kitten. I was shocked and asked them ‘You have a kitten in that bag?’ They said that someone had left it on their doorstep and they were looking for someone to take care of it. I walked over, took the bag, opened it up and sure enough there was a tiny kitten inside the bag crying. I wanted to make sure it was safe and cared for, so I told them I would take it.” At first Jami considered taking Sophie to the local animal shelter but quickly changed her mind. “That lasted about 30 minutes… I fell in love with her!” The abandoned kitten was thought to be just three weeks old and required bottle feeding and some medical attention. “I thought I was going to lose her. She was a tough little baby and fought her way back.

Of course, we’ll never forget the day when the remarkable Colonel Meow set the record just 6 months prior to his untimely death.
