I don't know why but I love odd things like this, shows you don't need to be Intel/AMD or whoever to do something :

I think fault finding might be a bit of a issue though... but its ok just blame the DMA like everyone else for everything :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thats cool but as you say fault finding would be a pain. Makes me think of when I was trying to do the IDE interface like this. Obviously not this scale but it was messing with my head so the person who did this must have a lot of patience. Hats off to them.

Generates a nice crash screen :lol: It should at least be random :lol: but this is why we have the Z80 :P
