    Found a Centipede machine in Santa Cruz. I don't think I ever played Centipede with a trackball before, it was fun to try, very fast and intense gameplay.

    Got the score 13564. I'm horrible at Centipede, and even after playing a few games at the Musée Mécanique, I wasn't able to beat my own hiscore.

    Got the score 31500 in MAME. Apparently, this is easier with a mouse.

    I played some Centipede using MAME with the new company USB trackball. Using pretty low sensitivity values to avoid 'roll-overs', it feels pretty close to the real arcade machine.

    Got the score 15507.

    Centipede with a track ball is the best. I played a frantic game at the 'Pinball Hall of Fame' in Las Vegas.

    Got the score 20809.

    Musée Mécanique: The Centipede machine was a bit wonky, the trackball would get stuck, making the game a bit less fair.
