Which homebrew cart/package do you own, and which of them do you play?

I'm pretty new to this list as well by the way, but:

I own a few different homebrews and  I actually thing most if not all of
them are very good.  My favorite thus far is "This Planet Sucks",   it's
fantastic.   I enjoy the physics  of Thrust quite a bit, but I still kind of
suck at that one.

I really enjoy the homebrew scene,  I'm planning on doing an Adventure
"Hack" I suppose.  But I'm hoping it's a totally new game, not just a few
graphics changes.   I'm not doing for money I'm doing because I loved the
original Adventure, and no one has ever done a sequel.    If the game sucks,
which is a very definate possiblity,  I wouldn't even think of making a real
cart out of it.

Also,  I've found that messing around with Atari Assembler has been fun as
heck,  and a huge leap from the Visual Basic stuff I do for a living.

he will be rewarded by you 10 times. You are being manipulated by those
people. Isn't there any lower mark, where you would say: "NO!" ?

how collecting everything is leading to something different. Something that,
as a programmer, I don't like.
