Unused Text

This string is found at 3D08, directly after the list of default high score names:

Richard Frankish 1991

This leftover piece of commented Z80 code (presumably to see if the YM2612 is ready to accept a write) is found at 62602, followed by lots of blank space:

$1	LD	A,(DE)		;Is the bus free ?			
AND	128

Incidentally, this text is loaded to the top of Z80 RAM, and is found right after the first few instructions! However, the code itself doesn't appear to have survived in the sound driver, or at least the piece that is directly copied in rather than "decrypted" (for lack of a better word; also it's possible the code snippet is corrupted).
