this mod




is taking signals from the pia to work with a gal and interface with the SRAM to act as ram expansion and a optional ramdisk , maybe there's a better way maybe not I do know this works though


Good write ups.


Thanks, I probally get a bit wordy and scant on details, that's a side effect of working for hack a day lol

Nice. Mine took a lot of work to fix and the label was destroyed but at least I have a fully working system that I can mod. I still need to retrobrite the keys a little more though.




Can I ask why you're socketing the PIA? Not a lot of mods that I know of require removing or replacing it.




I socketed the entire board also with high quality dual wipe sockets. It just makes future repairs and troubleshooting easier.
