If I had the necessary programming skill to patch or
re-write these programs I would do it. Really, I'm
bogged down rewriting programs to work on my CMD

It is my hope that programmers will be able to take up
the challenge. Isn't there a fellow rewriting GEOWrite
128 to use the Wheels Kernal? Didn't Maurice hack
Flight Sim II to run from a RAMLink? Aren't there
folks hacking games to run on SuperCPU?

If you really value these programs and want them to
take advantage of new hardware, I suggest you start
disassembling. That's what I do, anyway. Some I get to
work and some I don't.

As for GEOS/Wheels, it is up to Maurice to decide what
hardware his OS will support. As I see it, Wheels and
especially Wave would benefit ENORMOUSLY from the
advanced graphics and acceleration offered by Jeri's
card. I HOPE he will give it serious consideration.
