On a similar vein, I think it would be cool to see an Atari ST emulator on
the Palm... the screen sizes are pretty close, there's enough memory (on a
palm III) for a 1Meg ST emulator, it uses the same processor, so it
shouldn't run *too* slowly... but hooking up that floppy drive would be a
bit tough, I'll admit... ;-)

Just an idea,

Recycling is good, right???  Ok, so I'll recycle an old .sig.
If at first you don't succeed, nuclear warhead
disarmament should *not* be your first career choice.
