Exactly Pete. The C-64 wasn't that heavy on ram, yet it is the only program
where you could actually hook up your bencher paddle, go from 40 to 20 "as
the sun rose", tune the band work QRS ops on the high end of the band, and
C'mon programmers! There will be a lot of contesters who will gladly waste
time at work (even to the level of sneaking a bencher or begali into the
office) to practice with Doctor DX.
