MESS CPU with my stuff, and I just don't know enough about the TMS
microprocessors to know how it should be behavin' anyway.

O' course I could be wrong. I thought that there was no access
whatsoever to the Gameboy Advance OS ROM, but someone figured out how
to get that.

I stopped to do a couple of other computers to practice. Then, I'd
try to write the Tomy Tutor emulator, then stop and do some more
practice. I am a real failure. See my website for proof:
Anyways, write me (so I can get your e-mail address) and I'll try to
dig up those ROMs which someone else dumped. No guarantee about
