You asked for it, you got it.

This is the URL where you can download the current VHDL design for my 6526 
clone.  It's not fully tested, it's not fully documented, and it's not a 
complete 6526 (no TOD clock), but it's something, and it's by an American 
(fancy that). :)

I had hoped to use this code to produce chips that people could plug into 
the 64 motherboard in place of the original silicon, but it looks like 
that's going to be cost-prohibitive.  But that doesn't mean I can't get the 
code out there for whatever people want to use it for.

Maybe, also, this will give a suggestion of the type of work Jeri is most 
likely doing, albeit on a lot more complex level.  After all, I've been 
doing this in my spare time.  It sounds like she has a lot more of that 
than I do. :)

Comments/suggestions welcome.
