Ah well..

It's one of those many 'would-be-cool-if'-projects. They're all waiting
for an EPROMmer whose schematics I've designed about a year ago, but never
came to build it, let alone writing software for it ;)

Still, I really miss a diskdrive for my PET's every now and then. 
(and old Commodore-hardware seems to be getting scarce on flea markets, 
even in Germany.)

I really had a hard time last week, when a relative of mine said something
like "Oh! If I'd knew that you were interested, I woulnd't have thrown away
that 8296 with that 8250 diskdrive!".

Well, busses that don't need termination seem incable of handling long
cabling, somehow. (No matter what a manufacturer says).
