You'd get some real multi-tasking in that way. I am interested in this. Do you have a "file server" program that would look like a disk drive to the Commodore side? I need something that can serve a 4-megabyte file to a Commodore Vic-20. The cleanest solution would be to have a serial bus device. I do not need any 1541 or fastloader emulation, not even REL file support. Just the standard disk routines, or maybe JiffyDOS. Why 4 megabytes, you might ask? I want to be able to program the Vic Flash Plugin <http://www.iki.fi/~msmakela/8bit/vfp/> in-system. We now have parts for some 15 boards, just waiting for assembly and a wooden case. I tested the software on the years-old prototype last summer. It is supported by VICE.
