Wow - I haven't heard anything about CHAMProgramming in years!  I'm so glad
you enjoyed the games - I had a great time programming them.  Once MAME came
along, the thrill of making the games was gone since I could now just play
the *real* games.  If you're interested, there's a website out there that
has all of my games for download (the full versions) after I released them
into the public domain:

Anyway, I must say that programming for the 2600 is a little more difficult
than a 286.  I love the challenge and the opportunity to make something for
the system that really got me into video games all those years ago.  I just
need to *unteach* myself all the things I learned when making games for the
PC and start thinking in cycles... :)  This hockey game should be quite a

Thanks again for all the support!
- John
