one more thing;
I am thinking of buying a eprom programmer and burning my own roms. I
was skimming through a Jameco catalog, but before I go buying one with
bells and whistles, I thought maybe to ask for opinions and
recommendations.
the prices go from 200 to thousands, I am not sure what I need. I just
want one for my own personal use. I have so many bad boards I have been
tinkering with. mostly classic eighties, (asteroids, battlezone,
football etc...)
anyone have any advice on what to buy? thanx in advance.

I bought mine a few years ago from willem.org. Cost about $85 US and
does a bunch of chips. Worked great for the many many chip's I've
programmed. Heck of a lot cheaper then anything else out there with
tons of very very good support. tell them I sent you, maybe I'll get an
e-mail saying thanks ha ha..

Goggle this subject, since there has been a lot of discussion
on it in the past. I use a Pocket Programmer II and like it.

I use a combination of a Data I/O model 29B with Unipak II for the old stuff
(bipolar proms, 2708/2532s, etc.) and a willem for the newest stuff. Very
happy with boith. You can get a data i/o setup used fairly inexpensively
(around $100) and the willem I got for $60.

Best Regards,

Bill
