I am reminded of waaay back in the early PC days, a friend of mine jacked a
640kb RAM PC - remember those? - so it would use additional 64kb memory
segments and effectively increase it to an 896KB machine.  He did it by
making a new prom chip that had an altered address list to address the new
segments, in effect, and using a small assember routine to run that
addressed the new table.

In conjunction with the post above, I wonder if you guys could add loop
time/RAM if you had a modified chip on that level?  Just a morning thought.
