Hmm. I wasn't really planning to reply to this, but considering that I felt
that I needed some sort of test-mail...

Well, the Jeri-board discussion had some interesting technical aspects,
IMHO. But, you're right, I suppose.

But doesn't that argument hold against any "personal Commodore project"? This
one just got a bit bigger. I know what you're hinting at, and I do agree
with you, but where does it start to get off-topic?

Sadly, though, comp.sys.cbm has been 'degrading' in a certain way. The 
Joseph Rose Incident may have had an (undesired ?) side effect - the amount
of knowledgable people seems to have seriously dropped. Comp.emulators.cbm
is dying an even more evident death.
