Playing Google's Zamboni Game/Doodle… Over IPv6!

By Dan YorkDirector, Internet Technology

Okay, maybe it’s a small thing, but I have to admit that when I wound up on Google’s home page today to try out their “Zamboni doodle” celebrating the 112th birthday of Frank Zamboni, I don’t know which I found cooler… the game itself, or the fact that I was getting to it entirely over IPv6:

Just another moment when I’m glad that Google’s websites are accessible via IPv6!  As a web developer, too, I had to know: is this Zamboni game done entirely in JavaScript?  A StackExchange answer says that it is, which is fascinating.

P.S. And yes, that was as high as I let my score go… the Zamboni looks like it could be an enormous time-suck, and I do have some writing that needs to be done!
