How could I miss that? You have a picture of the board in a 1541 on your
site. Anyway, the thing is that I use a 1541-II with JiffyDOS, so I
really don't have the need for another speeder. Besides, there's not
much room inside a 1541-II and the motherboard sits under the drive
mechanism, so it's not very practical to have the Flash programmer in
there. :( Anyway, i think I'll go for the Batronix device for the added
flexibility (and for the challenge of building one).

Does the ROM adaptor come with build instructions? I'll probably need
them. ;)

Do you have a good source for 29Cxxx and other FLASH/EPROM/whatever
chips? My local electronics supplyer here in Sweden (Elfa) doesn't seem
to sell them. Or maybe MagerValp knows where to get them in Göteborg
(where we both live)?
