Well, I understand this concept. :-) 

But as I'am currently trying to write a source code 
that I'll use as the basis structure of all my future 
programs, I'am trying to be very accurate into cycle 
couting for each portion of the code, so I'll be able 
to say exactly how many cycles will be available for 
the Verticlal Blank or Overscan periods without care 
about all the instructions I already wrote for timer 
programming and other stuff. 

(I'll write one for NTSC and one for PAL and 
I'll post them at Stella Big List as soon as they will

be finished, so 2600's gurus like you will be able to 
correct me)

Indeed, I'm French

Thanks, you're a very kind person :-D
I do my best, but you'll see it won't be so perfect

> actually, I don't know how big Atari was in
Well Atari was very popular here in the golden days,
but today I think there's just few persons interrested
into the 2600/7800 regarding Atari's related French
sites and the French Ebay activities. I think the 2600
is more supported in Germany.

> Anyway, hope this helps. Good luck!
Yes sure, thanks
