Are you talking about the PieGates program that I temporarily had
available from my web pages???  I didn't think it had spread very far.

ObStellaProgramming:  Here's a question for the list.  We've seen that
the 2600 can handle sampled sounds.  Everyone remember "Stella says,
'write a new game'"?  Would it be possible to display a digitally
stored photograph?  Not necessarily as part of a game, just for the
sake of doing it.  Like the sound demo.

Also, I haven't played it lately, but I didn't think Journey Escape
was that bad.
