Wouldn't need a very big E(E)PROM for the PET; 2 64kB/27512s would cover most (all?) of the ROMs, and Jim's 2532<>27xxx adapter already does that:

Even better with the switches mounted outside; NVRAM is also really useful there.

Yes, agreed.  My offer is just a shameless attempt to make my site better :-)
On a serious note, i tried submitting a pet rom (waterloo basic) a while back and it ended up in the bit bucket...  And i still dont see info on where to upload files.

Probably the cbm archive at zimmers would be a good place to put the files

Hi, I have the CalcResult/WordResult but no VisiCalc... In any case, I can host any rom files on my CBM-II site if needed.
