Well this really sucks Chris.  In fact just tonight I was at the Obsolete
Media Weekend gala opening where I got to hear Paul Slocum's musical dot
matrix printer (way cool) first hand and I found myself talking about you.
I was trying to explain how come I've never played marble craze and I was
talking about my carpel tunnel syndrome and how I was hoping that someday
you would come out with that low impact Atari controller and then I could
play games just like regular folks.  I guess that's not going to happen now.

But I guess if you're not having fun you shouldn't be doing it.  Speaking of
fun, I have an idea for something to do with your bankswitch boards that
would be *really* fun.  No kidding.  It's diabolical.  Let me know if you
want to hear it...
