So I was recording something a couple weeks ago and for some reason it bothered me that my capture card wasn't recording at exactly 30 FPS, only 29.971. I wouldn't call myself a framerate snob most of the time but I just needed that extra .029 FPS.
I recently learned that both Garfield and Space Invaders debut on the same month: June 1978. There isn't a specific day mentioned for Space Invaders unfortunately, but Garfield debut on the 19th of that month. It's amazing because within the history of newspaper comics, Garfield is somewhat younger than the middle of the timeline, but Space Invaders is practically early in the timeline of video games.
