Flamed you eh? Did you show them our authentic labels?

All kidding aside, this is something Paul Tomlinson and I have been
kicking around. We thought that it would be neat to modify the Coke Wins
cart from "PEPSI" to "NWCGE", i.e., Northwest Classic Games Enthusiasts.
These would be neat little memoribilia items for the meeting attendees.
We have the capability to make some awesome labels (See exhibit A at
<>). We just want to go one step
further. I don't have the time with my graduate studies, family and a
full time job to brush up on programming again. This is a great
opprotunity for someone like Dan to learn how to program the 2600.

Take care,
