Rumor has it that Christopher Smith may have mentioned these words:

He's got it to 8Meg here, and said that 16Meg should be no problem... I
could have sworn (albeit not with my life) that he had a proto running
64Meg, just to see if it could be done, but with a very quick perusal I
couldn't find reference to it again... but I did find reference to
RAMZilla, which didn't have a direct link, so I think that was associated
with it somehow.

Drat... but admittedly, *filling* 64Meg on a CoCo would be a chore in
itself, unless you wanted one _big honkin'_ ramdrive.

He's also got a wire-wrapped CoCo listed elsewhere on the page...

Gotta get back to work,

Recycling is good, right???  Ok, so I'll recycle an old .sig.
If at first you don't succeed, nuclear warhead
disarmament should *not* be your first career choice.
