Hmmmm, judging from the posts that I've seen in the past from you, I
think you're one of those techies that can hack their own when they need
it.  Me? I hardly know which point is the hot one, with a solder iron.
With that in mind, how can you say that the process of installing the
MMU daughterboard in the 128 is difficult?

It took me 15 - 20 minutes to do the whole thing. I think it took me
more to read and reread and check the instructions against how I
installed it.

Just my humble opinion, of course.
