Today reportedly the 40th birthday of Pac-Man. According a ten year old
article the anniversary of the release of the arcade classic was yesterday. The
topic says the game was first released in July of 1980. But there are a lot of
stories saying today's the day, including the
Official PAC-MAN Website

birthday to the artist originally known as Puck-Man. Also, today is National

, who say the Windows edition of the card game
launched 30 years ago today: Word is: "And after 30 years, Microsoft Solitaire
is still one of the most played games on the planet every day, with more than
100 million hands played daily around the globe." Protip: Put the red seven on
the black eight. You're welcome.
