So the new z26 also has some other cool stuff.  Eckhard added support for
the Compumate ROM which turns the 2600 into a *real computer*.  It has a
real version of BASIC, a keyboard and a text console.  I think there are
some graphics capabilities too but I'll leave it to Eckhard to tell you all
about it.

I'd love to hear more about this, especially what it did for the text. I'd be surprised if it could somehow hack any _real_ graphics capabilities into it since there is no real way to route video through the cart port. But it might have some Supercharger-like functionality in it.

I have found very little Compumate info online.
