Since, there is no way in hell I'm going to be able to make it to Jersey 
for this, unless someone buys me a plane ticket, I'd love to be able to 
participate by telnetting into the BBS with my Atari 800.

For many of the early home-micros, a 40 column layout would be ideal. 
Don't know if that's possible along side with an 80 col layout.  All I 
know is that the 40 col display gets super goofy on some boards.

Anyway, just my $0.02, it's super exciting news regardless!!
