Donovan Keith -
Revision notes:
Ver1.10a [1/16/99]
First update large enough to warrant notes...added 'SatelliteLinker' info,
and updated numerous personal notes on other programs. Also added a section
for game info on Mec characters, to completed shortly.

Ver1.10b [1/19/99]
More notes and details. Added 'HammerCrush' program and info. Separated Mec
Attacks from Mec Equipment and added 'Graviton' attack to the list. Cleaned
up a few rough spots, improved the overall design of the FAQ (I hope).

Ver1.10c [2/8/99]
Fixed info on 'Shoot-All' program and 'Graviton' attack. Removed description
of 'Maelstrom' attack since I didn't have descriptions for the others. Added
more detailed info on several Mec characters. Added info concerning initial
number of Skill Slots for each body type.

Ver1.10d [7/11/01]
Looooong time between updates....Added new info about Leonard joining the 
party, and updated info on other Mecs.

Note: To the best of my knowledge, this list is 99% complete. I may still
be missing a few programs or items, if so please e-mail me and I'll credit
you in the next update.

Thanks to Dimetric Houston [] for info on 'Virus'
and 'Logic Bomb' programs.

Thanks to Brandon Harwell [] for info on the
'SatelliteLinker' program.

Thanks to Josey Bates [] for corrections on how to get 
Leonard to join the party.
