BTW guys.. great meeting.. Fun topics.. :)

Thanks Fredrik for the great overview! I haven't really looked at Assembler in 
a decade or more. Glad to see it still looks pretty much the same.. even on an 
architecture I've never seen. :)

I know that fact that the MSP430 family of ucontrollers has a 16bit ADC sure 
got my attention for my HProcket stuff! Thanks!

Thanks Tim for the fun NES hacking demo too. :)
