Well that would figure! That ^G is the only time I can remember his computer
making sound so he may not have been a wiz at programming the sound port
(I forget, is it that weird GI chip that MicroMint used to use too?), that
would explain referring to the example but it's not reason to snip it out

Beats me, the name sounds very slightly familiar but I was never a TI99 guy.
I think the Colin Ferguson thing was roughly the same time as OJ's little
adventure, the trials were more or less concurrent (but Ferguson's was a lot
more fun to watch!!!). I wonder what ever happened to Ferguson's appeal,
IIRC he got 5 life sentences so I naturally figured he was looking to get
it cut down to just 3 life sentences. :-) That would be about in character.
