I'm happy. Got to 15 to beat the Pieman. I can now die in peace, knowing both that I am functionally as well as socially challenged (I just found out that a movie I really, really wanted to buy came out THREE MONTHS AGO), and have resolved to not give a crap.

Isn't this one of those things where you're better off with a really old, slow CPU (and/or running lots of CPU-intensive tasks in the background) and then doing a lot of quick clicking before the thing actually moves? This reminds me a lot of something people brought here (or maybe even the old ezboard) a long time ago - it wasn't tennis, but it was the same game.
F'rinstance, on my top of the line workstation running XP, I only got 21 (also, it's too noisy for work). I bet if I could get the Mac G3 desktop running OS9 to display the game without crashing, I could probably get triple digits without thinking about it.
EDIT: Well, I got 63 on this PC so that shoots down my theory, I guess.

Last night I was loading a CD into iTunes and I clicked on the site, and it was VERY slow and I was able to click on the thing 10 times before it left the screen. I was able to pass 300 easily before I got bored.

I just showed this to our warehouse guy on the PC we use for shipping. HOLY CRAP the ball moved EXTREMELY fast in comparison to how it moved on my Mac. The best I got in a few games was 21, so I still drubbed pieman, though.
