Tried sending this last night, but seems to never have posted.  I'll try
zipping the files. :/ 
Sorry if triple posted for some...

I built a simple kernel that polls the Reset switch.  Reset triggers a BRK
which starts whatever game I've inserted.  I've successfully swapped carts
several times without any frying or apparent data loss.

Note that the program doesn't fill RAM, so I guess it's possible that the
higher addresses are getting fried... doubt it though.

:) It was fun to build.  (But difficult to post!)
