Hallo allemaal,

I could be completely wrong but IIRC JiffyDOS is faster than 
SpeedDOS. If that indeed is the case, I wonder why? My only 
explanation: bad programming.

If this is indeed the case, one could examine the code of SpeedDOS 
and try to improve it. Then the thought crossed my mind: what about 
replacing the part that handles the serial transmission of bytes in 
JD by a parallel transmission? IMHO JD could become even faster!

OK, and what has IEEE to do with this? The idea was NOT using the 
userport for the parallel part but an IEEE cartridge. 

Nice touch: this can be realised by taking the JD Kernal (which on 
itself is also an overlay (but to be done yet)) as base and creating 
a overlay that contains the parallel routines.

Maybe just a weird idea.... :)

Kind regards / Met vriendelijke groet, Ruud Baltissen
