Hiya Steve,

You really had me going for a minute there, but now
your making sense again  :)

I cannot speak for the old cbm.hackers since I've only
been a subscriber for a relatively short time, but ...

Absolutely right. Fer cryin' out loud, there's AT
LEAST ONE THING we all have in common here. I love
reading, thinking and writing about C-64 subjects.
Anything else is secondary. Please, don't let this
community degenerate over nationalistic disputes.
Leave that to the damned politicians.

You're not alone brother. I DO enjoy reading about the
technical hardware stuff even when I don't understand
all of it. All I can do is keep quiet and try to make
my questions as intelligent as possible. Other than
that I just hope some of it sticks  ;)

I'm glad to know you're so fair minded. I think you
should know that JuddPEG was quite a good
accomplishment and I doubt I'll ever code anything
comparable. For whatever my opinion is worth, I see
you as a valuable member of the community. I hope you
won't forget that the next time I post something that
seems less than "well informed."

Quite correct and that's how I see it too. I'd rather
bring everyone along for the fun, but some seem to be
"party poopers" 

Well, each one has a right to his own opinion; but I
would feel awkward to stand by and allow a productive
member of the community to be BULLIED off the list.
