This way PAGE is now E00 and a whole lot of games now work. I tried the few from the Chinnyvision video (Kane, Loopz) as well as Exile and they all load OK. I also tried SRLOAD'ing a rom into the sideways RAM slots and that works too.

Learning Morse after around 1970 strikes me as being the same as maybe learning Latin - it's not much use but you can kill two enthusiast birds with one stone and maybe unlock a bunch of old secrets if you have some old things lying around.

I always find it handy to have a rule with 10ths of an inch - I have a 6" and 12" rule with a 10th scale. They're getting harder to find but should be readily available in the US (?).

I could quite easily test that in MAME, to see how it works with the Electron. Currently in Brazil for next couple of weeks though so will have to wait until I get back.
That would be great, Nigel . . . Thanks. It would fit into one ROM with, probably, one PLD in a cartridge.
