Yes, that's probably better and likely to remain useable for a long time, but I
was focused on the socket size. It's pretty easy to hack the board, but
building a daughterboard is somewhat more work than hacking the PCB. If wanting
a place to put a 27C512 (also 28-pins) is a problem, a mezzanine board on the
CPU socket might work, too. Then the EPROM board can be sold on eBay to a
"collector" who won't care what it is, and will pay enough to buy a new car ...
well, maybe a new card ...
