New ROM Disassembly *and* Lance Micklus OK’s downloads

Two announcements:

  • Frank Durda IV had been working on a Model 4 ROM Update which was never released. That ROM has been disassembled and has been added to the ROM/CPU Page.
  • Thanks to a facebook discussion with Miyagami Noriko, I have corrected the entries for DOGSTAR ADVENTURE in the database and sought, and no have now received, permission from the awesome Lance Micklus to make all of his programs downloadable; so they are (and as programs are available, so are their manuals)! Thank you Lance!

  • RSC-03 through RSC-09 are now in the Catalog Search Page (special thanks to Jerold Stratton for assistance). If anyone wants to help enter the data from catalogs, please let me know.

  • From time to time I try to reach out for permission to post software and from time to time the author is deceased. I have added a note to the Software Search results page if the author has passed away, and the year of passing. Right now, I have only 4 entries (Sparky Starks, Michael Shrayer, Lance Wolstrup, and Leo Christopherson). If you know more, please let me know.
