Doh!  Should have gone to bed earlier *or* brought the mag home with me!
I can see the Letters page in my head now and I have two letters mixed up.
Sorry about that.  Anyway, sorry about that, Mr. Herman.  :^(  Regardless,
there are other classic things to recommend in this issue, e.g. a letter
about which conversions of Donkey Kong have all the levels (or intermissions).

Rob Fulop is mentioned, but since I don't have the details here, I'll
wait 'til tomorrow to say where definitively.  My fuzzy recollection says
that he was part of Digital Pictures (?) but of course, now, my memory is
very suspect.

Again, apologies to Mr. Herman for getting his letter mixed up in my
head (and now on the email list).
