Shit dude calm down
In a message dated 98-03-25 21:38:53 EST, you write:

Some people have more than one email address, so you might have sent it to one
that the person doesn't read very often

Get over it (I didn't know you could use tasm to compile fargo...I thought you
had to use something special?)

That would be very kewl to have, but it would take a very long time to make.
I wouldn't be surprised if someone was already working on it.
As for TI, I have no idea what you're talking about. TI has always been
straightforward in my eyes

There must be docs for that

You're dying? Of what? That's horrible!

And where did you get this? It must make for extremely accurate calculations
