    Played a game on a Missile Command / Centipede arcade machine at the Google GDC Party. The trackball takes some getting used to, it would probably be easier for me to play with a mouse.

    Got the score 9620 in MAME. Definitely easier with a mouse.

    Using the new company USB trackball, I played some Missile Command. Setting the input sensitivity in MAME low enough is key, so fast movements don't 'roll over'. Sensitivity around 20 seems to work OK.

    Got the score 17795. The Finnish Museum of Games arcade had a Missile Command machine. I love slapping the giant trackball around to try to save the world from ICBMs.
