# it's very tranquil.
perhaps it affects your brainwave patterns or something, leading you to a higher state of consciousness. i'd like to think so. must be why so many old people do it, they're obviously sages.

Behold the Way Of The Duck Pond. Oh great sensei NiceCupOfTea-shan, have you any words of wisdom for us?

losing it? moi?

# Mellow duck vibes
In previous versions on other computers (Acorn RISC OS) in different times people wanted a way of shooting the duck. This used annoy me to say the least. Then somebody hacked my duck so you could shoot it, which really pissed me off, as he made a really half arsed job of it. Bread throwing is the way forward. Anyway the duck hacking creep is now worth millions and I'm not. You figure it out.

# Yes
I was working at Acorn when they lauched the A3000. I had already done the Duck by then, it became quite famous in the little pond of the Acorn world. Your mate may of even of heard of it.

# The levatating duck.
Am I the only one for whom the duck will levatate?

He's gone off screen right and left a number of times as well.

It's not easy but by tossing the bread close to the top of the window will occasionally get him to go all the way off the top and come back when you toss a bread again.
