You're absolutely correct. But the remark was more meant to give anybody an
idea at all. IMHO you can use the same principle as a freezer: save all data
regarding the CPU, VIC and whatever in this SRAM as well. The only extra
hardware needed is the battery plus accompanying electronics and an EPROM to
be placed in the free socket (U36 ??). This EPROM contains the actual LOAD
and SAVE software.
Just an idea.

Groetjes, Ruud
