Time Trek may be sticky, I THINK it was coded for the 4000 series small screen
PET if not time trek, then a couple others I have...

I checked my source disks on those lines and it was the disk, not the
transfer... errors in the same places.

You ever by chance bought any of Mach2's multi-machine games, there were a
bunch of em they wrote for the cable.  All I have is FA and what was in BYTE.

My next generation version of the cable uses ideas employed from Transactor
vol8 iss5, to use the 6526's serial ports for a token ring type connection....
 I have 'for a later date' partially coded parts of my version of FA for up to
6 64s.  (actually 7; up to 6 to play, one to watch...)  maybe some year...
