I look forward to it... actually, half the fun seems to be making
discoveries and figuring stuff out. So I don't mind the work.

You're senses are that of a wilderbeast! You're correct in your assessment,
I'm quite new to assembly... this is my first exposure to it - but I am not
afraid! I'm currently in school majoring in computer science. I've got 2
semesters of C++ under my belt and this coming semester I am taking an
assembly class so the horizon looks bright. I will also definitely check out
those links you offered since I believe the more exposure the merrier. It'll
put me one step ahead in my upcoming class (or have they changed everything
since 1975?)

Yes! A newbie guide would rock, as well as a Stella programming FAQ (does
one exist??).
Thanks for the intro assembly links! I'm off to download and print them now
so I can have another 1am revelation! And I'm sure lots of questions will be
coming your way, thanks for being so kind as to answer them!
