Just want to give my opinion here..  I enjoy collecting carts as much as the
next guy, but for me it comes down to the games themselves.  With homebrews,
if they're fun to play and the author has made them available for purchase,
it's nice to support them by purchasing their games. I have done this with
several titles, even after the arrival of the Cuttle Cart.  There are still
more I need to buy, like Thomas Jentzsch's titles.  :)

However, with the Cuttle Cart, if I can get the money straight into the
developer's hands and play the games on the Cuttle Cart, that is something
I'd consider doing.  For me I also like having the physical cart, especially
if some effort went into the packaging.  But for games that are sold by
Hozer, if I had a choice to pay $5 directly to the author or $16 for the
cart, I'd probably go for the direct route. I could then spend $15 on three
different games, with $5 going to three different authors, hopefully
encouraging them to write more titles in their spare time.

I've bought tons of shareware and even commercial apps in this same fashion.
I don't need the physical media as long as I can download and make an
archival copy of the software.
