I wonder what happened to Garon.  Does anyone know him personally?

In a way, my vision for 2600 Cookbook
is somewhere between the
a traditional tutorial and this collection of snippets.  Once I
get its core done, I'll try to bring in more snippets (submissions
welcome, though I'm trying to keep it in the problem/summary
assemble-complete-code-example format)

I don't know about disassemblies though.  I thought I saw a 
collection around but I forget where.

I found the old snippets a wonderful inspiration. I think between
Andrew Davie's newbie tutorial and 2600 101, a newbie can get some
of the same "wow I can do this" element I got from the old dig, 
but the diversity of snippets can't easily be replicated (though
on the other hand, some of those old snippets were ferociously
crappy code, not good for newbies to copy...)

With the new dig, doing a search for things w/ attachments
can find some of those nuggets....
