    Frustrating Game

    Here is a little online game I ran across. The concept is so simple it's great. I thought of numerous ideas for new levels. Anyways, just thought I would try to infuriate some of you.

    They say that if you play a Windows Install CD backwords, you hear satanic messages. That's nothing; play it forward and it installs Windows.

    There's a Playstation game with this same concept called Irritating Stick. No really, my friend has it. I can't stand it for more than a minute or two.

    44 seconds to get through the first level, and then I thought I would have to move my mouse to get back to start... *doh* It keeps going

    24 seconds on the first level, but i made the same mistake as confuted. There needs to be a grace period or something.
