Jezz-on!A Fun Story Jezz-on!

KillerDear Dave,

My name is Cameron Cummins, and I too am now a Jezz-Freak!  I first saw this game when my friend brought it over to my house a couple of years ago and he thought it was a pretty cool game.  At first I didn't really play it that much, but after I watched the demo, I quickly picked up on the secret. First I should tell you a little about myself. I was born and raised in Duluth, Minnesota. I am the eldest of two and I am 19 years old.  During my last two years at high school I was attending a Commercial and Residential Wiring course at a local technical college.  During this time I found out that computers were much more fun and far more interesting.  So, along with a good friend of mine, I started learning all about computers.  We also started a computer business (kind of) and built custom machines, mainly for friends.  Our web site is www.angelfire.com/biz/cngcomputers/index.html

I also recently began Microsoft training and have become a Microsoft Certified Professional.  As you can tell, I have been deeply involved in computers.  I'm not what you would call a gamer, I just happened to get hooked on this one game.  The first high score I reached was about four million something at level 43.  I couldn't imagine the game going much further, because it seemed impossible to make any lines.  No one else I knew had a score even close to mine, and I wondered how good my score really was.  I got on the web and found your web site, where I found out my score didn't mean sqat! Then I found out it went to level 49 and kept repeating, so at least I had a goal to shoot for.  So, a couple of weeks ago I started a game, and was doing fairly well, after playing for about eight hours straight.  Of course I couldn't shut my computer off, so it was just running all the time.  And believe it or not, I do have a life other than Jezzball, so I couldn't spend all my time playing it.  It took me two weeks to get to my score of 14,498,865, and I could have kept going except for my stupid mouse froze up and I had to reboot.  But, it was enough to currently put me in 5th place overall.  After my game ended, I tried to start another one, but I just didn't have the patience to start all over again.  And since I'm trying to certify as a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer, studying is a little more important right now. So anyway, that's my story and that's my score. I know it's not the highest, but it's pretty darn good!
