I thought that Enduro went on and on and on...  I'm pretty sure I've 
heard stories of people just playing that game for hours.  Or was that in 
another episode of Ruffin's Dream World (not to be confused with Kirby)?

IDJ would have to be another fav, right?  What were those initials that 
experts could get?  I never got above about half-way up the screen at the 
end of my Ark hunting.  Danged Tse-tse flies...  ;)

Glenn has mentioned how he dislikes this move from "scores" to plot-based 
games (that's my attempt at coining a name for 'em).  I will have to 
admit I always loved seeing the missile take off in Jumpman after I 
finished a level, and have gotten to the point that I'm upset when the 
"payoff" for these plot-based games aren't impressive enough.  FIFA '98 
for the Saturn just had that dumb bird sitting there with the World Cup 
spinning around or something.  What a waste!  It is, btw, a great game 

One quick question:  Does "Beat 'em up" work on the DOS version of Stella 
0.7?  Nothing happens on the Mac.  I take that back; once I got some 
weird noises.  And has anyone heard when Stella 1.0 for the Mac might be 
released?  I'm pretty eager with anticipation.

Make that two questions:  Robin, what are you using for a mail handler?  
Novaterm?  Or have you finally made the first C=64 PPP connection?!! ;)  
Good luck!
