Believe me, it's all zeroes and ones (says the guy who's only put out a
couple of demos).  If you can wade through the horror which is JavaScript
(where you're writing for about 17 platforms... kinda like Java: write once,
test EVERYWHERE), you're only a short mind shift away from doing some
assembler.  It's only fitting that some whippersnapper's "Stella at 50"
holographic presentation includes a 2600 game written by the author of
Stella at 20.  ;^D
