... and with a full speed atari 800 emulator and a full speed apple II 
emulator, and even an 'almost' full speed game gear and sega master 
system emulator (not to mention the FMSX emulator,) I have to wonder WHY 
WHY WHY no one has made a good amiga 64 emulator. I had one called the 
'64 emulator II' and it ran faster on my stock 68000 than ANY of the 
current 64 emualtors I've seen on the Amiga (using my 25mhz 040 4000,) Of 
course, it's all custom stuff, and won't run on my 4000... but really, I 
know for a fact that it can be done (a fast amiga 64 emulator,) I would 
bet that even a stock 68000 could do it with the right programmer.

(By right programmer, I mean one of those guys who hears 'who said you 
can't do that on an Amiga????' and gets very offended and makes it his 
mission in life to make the person who said that eat craw for the sake of 
the honor of the Amiga and his honor as a 'anything is possible' hacker.
