It's realy a fine product in the end, thank you for doing it. I really
enjoyed both watching it's progress and the final output.

Please tell me that I'm wrong here, but you didn't think you could've
made a living out of 2600 coding? That's at least an impression I got.

That's fine to hear. I'd really be sad if we'd lose you here. I really
appreciate all your valuable input here. I mean not only 'QB', but all
your concern for other projects, too. It'd be a great loss for us if
you'd just call it quits. There's already too much people who left for
other duties/priorities and whose input I sadly miss, judging from all
this brill stuff hidden in the archive.
