Quick request for when you get back: the Sega FTP site (
has a collection of GIFs of game covers, screenshots, et cetera of Sonic
stuff. My gripe, when I was poking around there, was the blurriness of
the screenshots; they appear to have been photographed, then scanned in.
Considering you (by which I mean Sega) should have direct access to the
data used to construct any given screen in a Sega game, I expect it would
be possible to build the GIFs digitally; this would not only give
pixel-perfect results but also smaller files (64-color computer pictures
compress a lot better than 256-color dithered scans). Pass this on to
the QA people for the FTP site, please?

Also (I hate to be a burden, but you're the only Sega presence I know of
on the Net) would it be possible to get some little clipart things of
Tails from the game, specifically the animbits of him helifoxing? I was
trying to build a little icon of the guy, but my tracing-paper skills are
right up there with Sonic's ability to swim... (:3
