Mr. Mike Mika: if you are reading the list right now, please consider including a chapter or two on optimization in your "2600 Programming for Dummies" project. I am learning that optimization is a very important part of programming in such a constrained environment as the 2600, particularly when your goal is to create a 2k or 4k program usable by anyone without additional hardware or specialized EPROMs. The difference of a few bytes here and there is far more critical here than in most development done today.

I believe that a set of optimization techniques would be invaluable to all the beginning ML programmers who are taking up ML to bring new games to life for the 2600. I also believe that other members of this listserv will share this opinion.
