And my C64 runs at 20Mhz, with a 65816 in 6502 emulation mode :)
I'll have 16MB of RAM for it soon too, talk about room to unroll
some loops!  If this intrigues you, check out:

My C64->Supercharger program is nearly done - I've been using it
to write programs for the 2600 already.  I just want to improve
the user interface, to make it easier for unknowledgable folks to
send .bins.  Although, probably everybody using this thing will
be very knowledgable... I also want to include a really nice doc
file, this may take a while.

For this purpose, may I freely quote all the A2600 documents I've
obtained from the Internet, as long as I'm giving references?
