Hi tim,

Thanks. I mailed Mario and received all I wanted.

You're right. Mario's file does contain a MemoryObject.

I've got two of them. One from 1983 and one from 1988. Including sources and 
changes files. I run the '83 vintage with the Hobbes Emulator. And I want to run 
them with a Unix VM I am trying to build. But don't wait for it. :-)

Greetings and thanks,

Weniger, aber besser.
