640K is all it takes...

I was reliving my carefree youth playing old Atari 2600 games on my computer the other night (it's not as good as having the old system with its one-button joysticks, but it's not bad) and the game decided to freeze up. This wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing, but in this case it ground my whole system to a halt. A Pentium II with 160MB of RAM ghosted because my DOS-based Atari emulator froze up. A quick reboot solved this, but still. Wouldn't you think a system like that should be able to recover from such a small program's demise?

Whatever...
