That's from the PET-2001.zoo archive on, I incorporated those games
at the end, I wanted to try to make it a definitive library, As I get more
stuff I'll add to it.

Seabattle?  I'll leave it on, as it's proabably in Dutch and there is a lack
of mult-lingual programs (actually just programs) for the PET.

I tried it from the 'ISA 16 bit everything card' (it runs all the ports and
drive controllers) and then from a multi-io card (I now have 3 serial ports
and two parallel), neither worked...  I've triple checked my wiring, I figure
the problem is there but I just am not seeing it....  :/

So I'm resorting to null-modeming, but for some reason I can't null-modem
(maybe it's the mac's RS-422 serial port?) So now i plan to modem, the only
64/128 terminal not giving me kiniptions is Snapterm (Desterm 2.00 gives me
hack, Nova term is no-va (no-go))  So I'm gonna d/l something newer and try...

When I get another week of nothing to do (unlikely), I'll get into my Mac
programming tools and work up a nice xfer program...
