Well, being Wave a reality, I think it just depends on the dithering algorhythm.

Huh? I'm also very interested. What sort of kernel and/or TCP-IP stack runs on that? The 8051, if memory sustains, is a microcontroller shipped in a variety of versions, one with internal BASIC interpreter and TTL serial I/O (good to use a C= as its console, connected via the User Port). yo, RDO - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
