Indeed. And to think I was feeling a bit guilty for the price of my 512K boards. But I did try to give people money saving options as well.
I just received a batch of the PCB'S in for the 512K EEPROM boards and the external controllers. With all the frenzy as of late about Flash/ROM pack projects of different sorts in the works it's hard to tell what setups will be in demand..or forgotten. Oh well, I'm happy with my boards and will continue to provide them as long as there is a desire for that type of multi-cart.
