Yes, I indulge from time to time. I have no idea what kind of times I've gotten, but I do play. I've become heavily addicted to free cell solitaire now though. It was a trick to get onto, but now I can't stop. My best streak so far is 11 wins. I just won five in a row and had to stop myself.

I have never yet spoken a word of English to any of my children. They can speak as much English as they like to others, but when they talk to me they have to talk in Gaelic."

I like minesweeper too. Alernate between it and spider solitaire. Not sure my best times - never kept track... Laetly I've been too busy trying to beat the advanced level on Spider ...sigh... maybe someday...

I have played minesweeper a time or two did pretty well but not one of my favs. Hehe, I hit too many bombs. BOOOMM!!! I do like Spider solitaire. My wife is hooked on Spider and I can't get her off of it.

I used to play mindsweeper all the time. It's a very entertaining game. I can't say I've ever won the game in a short amount of time however. It's been a while. All that school work, and busy, busy life.
Pinball is also one of my favorite past-times. I used to be rather good, compaired to my brother atleast. He's still trying to beat my high score from 2 years ago.

Last option on my list for dier straits in the 'boooorrrrrrinnng meeting' scenario is Minesweeper. I admit I've played it when I don't have a better alternative. I've got some decent times too. generally. I generally try to avoid the M$ games when I can though. If you ever catch me playing sol.exe on a PC bigger than a 386SX, call the hospital. The first time I played it on a machine over 50 mhz and didn't feel bad about insulting the hardware was when I played it on my iPOD (which was playing music at the same time)
