      No offense to those in the conversation, but I'd really like to avoid a
      my-computer-can-beat-up-your-computer thread. I get that enough other
      places and it's really quite tiresome.

      ObTutor: Great things are afoot on the GBASIC front -- stay tuned for a
      very complete analysis, and the first steps towards a working GBASIC
      model in Tutti. I'm still fleshing out the syntax tree (there's a lot of
      weirdness in GBASIC's expression handling), but at least one
      undocumented keyword has emerged, as well as some clues to its
      internal memory representations. I'll be posting when it's done very
      soon (next week perhaps).
