Gotcha beat, just barely by one stroke -- I'm $3B.

Watch for my release of source for the UltiMusE virtual memory system.
How does your BASIC or OS-9 intend to address all that RAM space?

I like Scotch whiskey, steam engines, bagpipe music, and have been learning 
their infernal game with the efficiency-obsessed scoring (everyone scores the 
same number ($12) of goals, the winner has done it with the least amount of 
work, defined as ball hits).

I still have my Vectrex 3D goggles with the spinning color disks.

Good stuff.  I rebuilt a MD and sort of learned to play it.  Play uke and 
guitar too.

Be sure to include new living quarters and new girlfriend in search :-)  :-)
I've come *this* close to getting a chanter.

For many years, there was no room for a car in mine.  For a while, I couldn't 
walk from the front garage door to the back door.  Now have a three "car"
