Actually, Kevin Horton has mine right now, and can probably get ROM dumps
(Sean Kelly may already have them).  A polite email to Kevin might get him
to document what it does & how, perhaps.  I haven't asked for that yet, I'm
just hoping he can get mine working (I got mine a few years ago, but not in
working condition).

BTW, if anyone DOES reverse engineer those and can see a way to get it to
play off of CD via "conventional" means, we at CyberPuNKS would be very
interested to hear it, as it would add value to our Stella Gets A New
Brain re-release.
