I thought you would.  :)

Man.  If I could just get that movable sprite demo (hint, hint) I'd teach
a 2600 programming class here in the spring.  I'm sure we'd get a few more
programmers out of that.  The simple fact is, I know how to build hardware,
but I just don't program.  It would take me forever to read through the
archives, decipher all the posts and get something running.  :(  But given
a demo, I can hack it for all it's worth.  I took Nick's How to Draw a
Playfield and got "this close" to having something that would pass for
interlaced video.  Yes, I really, really think it can be done!
