Yeah, there are quite a few good books on 8 bit computers that have some
good info on general 6502 techniques.  One that I think is especially
interesting is "Apple Graphics and Arcade Game Design".  It's got all

lookups and junk like that ;)  In the credits to the book, the author
thanks Jim Nitchals for assistance.  Cool.
