Uhm... brill should've been short for 'brilliant'! :-)

Ups, I'm sorry.

Hehe, maybe I'm gonna change that, if I ever do a 'Gamma' Demo :-)
I think someone recently had a similar rainbow thing displaying an Atari
logo, that might be a good replacement...

Well, feel free to send it to Randy and get a cart done royalty free for $11 
if you like. As I said before, I'm not claiming for anything in that particular 
BIN, so go ahead if you like to have it on cart.

Someone should test it on the real thing though. Except the Grid(Board?)
part I think it should do fine on real carts. In the Grid thing there might 
occur some screen jumps. (Not 100% certain here... might do / might not do)

I probably can fix it, I stopped there more or less on lazyness...

You're welcome. It was great fun doing it.
