Pong emulation

Hi all,
  I've recently started, along with my son, trying out this wonderful language.  In order to familiarize myself with Scratch I decided to try to emulate the original Pong game, as that is about as simple as a real video game gets :-)

My copy of Pong:
A history of this classic game:

I've included very simple AI for the right hand bat, but you can hit '2'
to go into 2 player mode at any time.

The game concludes at 21 points to either player

I have to say, I'm really impressed with "Scratch", it is just the tool I need to introduce my child to computers, and reminds me of the early 80's when you could actually create programs.  Has anyone got any links to magazine like articles of scratch or even podcasts?

Many thanks Scratch people,


P.S. Pong was developed on the Mac version of Scratch, but my boy is using Debian and that unoffical linux port of Scratch, we're really looking forward to the offical support of Linux :-)
