Well, the board can take up to a 512K flash/eprom, 8K of that is taken 
for the menu and loader, and if it works as planned it can use a mixture 
of 8K and 16K roms, so up to 63, 8K or 30, 16K. The other thing I'm 
possibly going to try and implement, is save a copy of a cassette to the 
rom and load it from there, should be much quicker than from tape, but 
would also mean less programs/rom.

Hopefully I'll publish the design and code once I have the thing 
finished, I'm also hacking support into Mess, and asuming that the Mess 
team are ok with that, it'll be in there too :)
