        I know that as of a couple of years ago Ward Shrake had
archived most of the known ROMs for the various VIC-20 cartridges,
including a lot of rare ones. I believe he was also behind a project
to do the same with the Emerson Arcadia 2001 game console. The last
I heard he had gotten somewhat burned out and was taking a bit of a
break from it all.
