DHTML Lemmings

Jonathan’s post about Asynchronous JavaScript with XmlHttpRequest (AJAX) caught my eye. As noted in Jonathan’s post, using the XmlHttpRequest object isn’t new…it has been available in Internet Explorer for a long time, certainly since late 1999/2000. Indeed, it is only now that other browsers are appearing on the scene and more of us find ourselves with always-on Internet connections that AJAX comes of age. Like Jonathan, I’m looking forward to getting my hands dirty with it, very soon. There’s more about AJAX-based applications over here.

I also found a link to DHTML Lemmings in Jonathan’s post…uh oh, I can see hours of my time going out the door…I overplayed Lemmings when I had it for my Archimedes during the late 80s and early 90s. Ok, ok, Jonathan’s post title did mention it too, but I didn’t think the game would be this realistic.

Move over Patience and Solitaire, your days are numbered.
