Hi Cameron, many thanks for putting this together! I have a question on the SuperPET. Where there really SuperPETs with 128k RAM? In fact the SuperPET RAM expansion is entirely incompatible to the 8x96 RAM expansion. So I wonder what it is about with the "MMF9000" boxes that are "really just 8096s with extra RAM". zimmers.net only has two SuperPET board versions: - one with three boards, and - one where everything is combined into a single board Both IIRC have the same capabilities, including the unknown 6702 dongle (or whatever this IC is - it is not yet knonw) Did you get any comments on the 6702?
