Modern consoles usually have a memory-card maintenance program built-in, so
why not an AtariVox companion cartridge to do the same thing? I guess it
wouldn't be much use in maintaining the list of file types, unless they were
all known in advance (or space were used in memory to keep a table of them,
which would cost more than just having three-byte extensions unless you had
lots of files of each type), but you could maintain your files with it and
it could include some kind of interactive demo program for generating speech
and sound with the AtariVox. Then you just have to tell the user there's no
space and he/she should delete something using the AtariVox Companion
Cartridge...only $19.95 at AtariAge. =)

That's a pretty good idea, I like it. Now to find someone who can program such a cartridge. Guess I could offer a free AtariVox as incentive. :)
