Yep, that answers it.

Ok, I had forgotten this.  Yay!  I think that does it for the TIA, and the
ROM.  Now I just need to work on the RIOT.  The main map is complete...I'm
just working on a nice RIOT document as an appendix.

For those interested in the memory map project, take a look at the the URL
below.  This will eventually become part of a (somewhat massive) documentation
archive for VCS hardware.  The software stuff is pretty well documented, if
difficult to find at times.  I just bought a HP 6300CSE scanner today, so
I'll be scanning in various magazine articles, data sheets, schematics, etc
and adding them to the archive as time permits.  Eventually, it'll have a
more useful and organized format....first I want the files there. ;)

Anyway, take a look at the files there, and please send me your bug reports,
suggestions, or just random comments on the memory docs.  There are 2 main
files there, please let me know which is more useful.  I'll be compressing
the listing to fewer lines as time permits.
