Cool! I think Rob Fulop is probably one of the best coders of the 2600, 
right up there with Neubar (if not better,) Fathom is just amazing.

I think he just asked stella REAL nicely, and she did it for him, (he 
probably took her out to dinner, shagged her and all,) and after that 
she'd probably do anything for him (which is probably why you can't see 
it in the code.)
