Yeah, you're probably right. I'm not sure if there was the Macro
standardization when I started out, relatively a long while back.

Sometimes I can't believe I want to write "2600 102"...those 
those who can, do, those who can't (at least not well), teach :-)

I used to think of as the old "Dig" as the canonical place for 
stuff like VCS.H and the macros file.  The current Dig, while 
cool, doesn't have much "hand posted" like that.  Does anyone
want to to suggest "the" canonical location for stuff, based on
consensus of Stella?  

I guess what I'm thinking could be thought of as a homepage 
for Stella.  Perhaps it could be a new page at the new Dig,
since Glenn seems to be a good and reliable webpage keeper, 
and since it is related to the Dig's task of Stella excavation,
or maybe it could be a specific page hosted on Atari Age or 

It would be a list of tools (w/ local mirrors of everything!),
links to files we'd like to standardize on, the usual tutorials,
canonical documents (like the HTML version of the Stella guide...
though I think there's one or two mnemonics that don't jive with
the official VCS.H), links to the various existing programming
sites (preferably this list will be checked for dead links every
once in a while) etc.

Just some thoughts.

When I edit 2600 101, I will update to suggest people use those macros,
but encourage them to inspect them so they see what they're doing.
