And it just kind of blows my mind that the engineers of my childhood are still alive.  Although I didn't know it when I was playing these games as a kid, the developers for Atari have over time turned into heroes in my mind.  I really cannot imagine what it would have been like programming without the tools and resources that we have today. 

To the David Cranes, Warren Robinetts, Steve Wozniaks, and countless others - Thank you for pioneering into the unknown.  Some day I wish to shake your hand in person!
