 Notes for February 8, 1994
 --------------------------
 
      Boy, I feel like I've been through a hurricane!  I've gotten a raise,
 moved into an apartment with my fiancee, worked out a free email address
 that goes directly to my new home, and suffered through cold as low as 25
 degrees below zero!  Fahrenheit, no less!  Needless to say, the List has
 been neglected, so please find it in your heart to work up some more
 scores.  We need contributions!  (Shouldn't be too hard, right?  Aren't
 there new games that you want to be king of the hill of?  :-)
 
      NEW email address for contributions!  "trixter@trxhome.mwc.com"
 
 Introduction
 ------------
 
      Due to the (unfortunate) shortage of Lynxers around my area, I've
 taken to recording a high score from everyone I've come into contact with,
 both for bragging purposes (a little competition never hurt anyone), and
 also to see just what is possible.  Without other people to compare
 against, I have no idea if my achievements are good or lame.
      To combat that, I've come up with a "high score" file, with more than
 just high scores.  A description of the categories are as follows:
 
      High Scores:   Well, just that.  All scores are assumed to be given in
                     the game's native allocation unit.  Examples:  170,400
                     (points) in Robotron, 1,850,000 (buckazoids) in Zarlor
                     Mercenary, etc.
      Speed Records: An achievement of how fast something was completed.
                     Only applies if the game itself has a timer.  Examples:
                     Completed ElectroCop with 12:30:44 left on the clock,
                     etc.
      Achievements:  Any phenomenal achievement.  Example:  Reached level 57
                     on Robotron, finished the American golf course (Awesome
                     Golf) 2 under par, etc.  Game completions will not be
                     counted.  This is because almost anyone can complete a
                     game if they put their mind to it.
 
                      IMPORTANT THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND:
 
      -    If there are more then ten scores submitted for a game, only the
           top ten are printed.  Scores are now sorted with the skill level
           accounted for, making the top score the top "best"
           accomplishment.
      -    It is, of course, assumed that all scores, records, etc. have
           been achieved without the use of cheating.  Honestly applies.
      -    Whenever there is a dispute over a score, a question mark will
           appear next to the score until it can be verified.  Example:  A
           Surfing score of 8,347 isn't right, because Surfing counts by
           fives, making a "non-multiple-of-five" score impossible.  In the
           above case, it's assumed that the producer of the score is either
           lying, or can't remember the exact score.  It will be reported as
           Surfing:  (?)8,347
      -    PLEASE submit your scores!  Submission information is at the end
           of this list.
      -    Whenever possible, include your email address, so that other
           Lynxers may congratulate / challenge you through email.
      -    As this list is new (inception 7/20/93), there are undoubtedly
           many scores that I haven't listed, so please email or contact me
           with new developments as they occur.  Also, most of the scores
           are mine, as I don't have many contacts yet.  8-)
      -    A new list will be posted to alt.games.lynx and
           rec.games.video.misc once every month.  The most recent list is
           available from me upon request.
 
 Well, enough of that.  Let's get started.

 Achievements

      Baseball Heroes:
           Darin Reid  Home Run avg. of .250; he
                explains:  "I got 25 homeruns in the homerun derby from
                'Baseball Heroes'.  This is significant, because you're
                limited to 100 pitches total.  So in effect I had a home run
                1/4 of the time at bat."
 
           Darin Reid  got a no-hit game; he
                explains:  "I just threw a 26 strikeout (one ground ball),
                no-hit game in Baseball Heroes!  I was using The Sweeps,
                playing LA.  I just kept putting the ball over the inside
                (for righties, outside for lefties) corner, the batters
                never even swung, the only one who did, hit a slowroller to
                the SS. As I got to the 9th my heart was pounding...FINAL

                level, I was given an address to write to,
