Well, since Activision is alive and could in theory sue us over distributing a
modified version of game they haven't sold a copy of in over decade, yah, I
suppose we have to live mindful of such threats.  How about this, as a future
method to distro these things...

As Ruffie O:) once scolded me, we Stella list folk *are* a technical bunch.  If
you distributed patch details in the classic method (see below), that'd be more
than enough for us to do it ourselves.

Something like:

Patch Offset: $1200, From: 12 34 56 78 , To: DE AD BE EF 

should be fine - succintly carries the information, and provides for patch-
reversal too.

That should make Big Bad Glenn happy, and a happy Glenn is a happy Stella-List.
