But what about changing firmwares? You mean a cartridge that can be inserted to any type of Commodore? Have the C64-style cartridge port connector on one short side, VIC-20 on a long side, and plus/4 on another short side. And just one EPROM chip on the cartridge, of course. :-) But it'd be easy to cheat: use e.g. a 27256 and assign an 8-kilobyte bank for each type of computer. I think that it was George Taylor who had the idea of creating a disk that would work on as many types of computers as possible. Commodores wouldn't be so difficult, since the directory area is in the middle of the disk, while most other systems have it on the outmost tracks. And most other systems use FM or MFM, or are there any others than Commodore and Apple who used something else? BTW, there are two bugs in your mail program: it uses BASE64 encoding in the To: header in an improper way, and it changes the Re: prefix to Re:.
