<offtopic>

All Music Guide () tells the story of Popcorn: it was
written in 1969 by Gershon Kingsley, but made popular by Hot Butter,
a.k.a. keyboard virtuoso Stan Free and some support musicians (may
have included Kingsley himself). Unfortunately, AMG has no record
of a Blackbird song.

Jarre on the other hand is born in 1948, so theoretically he is old
enough to have heard Popcorn when it was released, whatever difference
it does.

There are roughly 700 songs in AMG's database where "Blackbird" is
included in the title, so if your assumption is correct, I would
also assume Jarre is a pseudonym for Paul McCartney, John Lennon,
Crosby/Stills/Nash & Young, José Feliciano, Modern Talking and
Nina Simone, to mention a few. :-)

Hmm, that might be something. José Feliciano sings Jarre...

</offtopic>

Nah, I should save my efforts in programming for the MiniGame compo
instead (free plug).

More "Popcorn" information for the interested reader....

I particularly like the "Wet-ones" wet wipe thingies commercial that
had a brief showing here in the states about 2 years ago during the
super-bowl with dancing pop-up wipe bottles to Popcorn.

Oh yeah, this is an Atari news groups...

Long live Atari!

Fortress !!
Game was done by a brit, had a nice intro-picture with a small animation
(alas, the game mostly crashed after that intro, so I removed it). The
game featured "ripped" sounds originally done by Kemal Ezcan. The full
length of the file was 279 single sectors - after removing the intro and
packing it with DJ-Packer my version now has 78 single sectors and still
plays fine. Alas, a two-player mode is missing...   -Andreas.

P.S.: If you miss the highscore table in fortress, you can create a new
one by choosing the option ERASE Highscore (and no, after the game
created a new one for you it won`t erase it immediately)...

But I do:
it is called FORTRESS. includes 3 musics: Oxygene (part 2 or 4?),
Popcorn and Digi-Loo-Digi-Ley (all programmed by Kemal Ezcan)...  
-Andreas.

P.S.:  Hehehe, have that HOT Butter version on CD. Also know that JM
Jarre remake. But look whats on the music market today: 90% recycles of
songs from the 60`s, 70`s, 80`s and even 90`s. Maybe teenies should
start to listen to the original versions ?!?

Excellent. Now, I only need to see Jarre do the hand waving motions
and dancing to determine similaritie with the Herreys brothers.. :)

I don't think Tim underestands what I'm talking about
auction posts in csa8, oh, two or three years ago.
These weren't notices of auctions being held someplace
else, like ebay or a web site, these were like 10 to
20 auction posts in csa8.  They haven't occured here
for years.  There would be maybe 40 or 50 auction
posts, making it very inconvenient to read non-auction
posts.  Our European, some, participants were especially
bothered by the auctions because they would take
maybe 2 or 3 minutes to load the group to read it
every day, much longer if 2 or 3 days.  Most European
participants pay per minute for internet connections.

Besides, I said 'in my opinion', and I don't think you
know what I'm was talking about.
