hey, ryan.  right on the money.   thank you!   still need to iron out a few
bugs with zsnes, like getting fullscreen and using a mouse instead of a
joystick (which i don't have, so i can't move the pointer), but it works
pretty well otherwise.  this is very cool -- i was hoping to find a windows
executable.  what i got was a million times better.  something i can play on
my own computer.

thanks again!
