what about ms. pacman?

Passed over again:

During its party held in Japan's Yokohama prefecture, Namco was officially awarded for its entrance into the Guinness Book of Records. The company's classic arcade title, 'Pac-Man,' is being listed in the record book as the 'most successful coin operated game' in history.

Namco sold 293,822 units of the arcade machine during the seven-year period from 1980 to 1987 when the arcade game was being manufactured. David Hawksett, science and technology editor at Guinness World Records, appeared at the party to present the official Guinness plaque to Namco founder Masaya Nakamura and 'Pac-Man' creator Toru Iwatani.


Does no one understand her superiority?

    I can only add that we all could have had a much more complete and technical understanding of all things Ms. Pac-man had my attempt at the liberation of a certain underappreciated repair and maintenance manual from its dusty prison not been subverted by an unnamed group of naysayers and french fry eaters.
