Rumor has it that Gary Zwan may have mentioned these words:

Not successful yet - hit a snag WRT the source code for Cubix--- it was 
written in a totally non-standard assembler (read: the guy that wrote Cubix 
wrote the assembler as well) and trying to convert the source code to 
something "standard" (read: CCASM) would've been an exercise in pain.

However, I believe that he had an x86 cross-assembler available to compile 
Cubix on, and now that the Rainbow IDE is available, I'm looking at trying 
to work on getting the ball rolling again; if I can get Dave's assembler 
grafted into Rainbow.

Right now, I have 2 jobs, 2 side businesses[1], wifey & 3 kiddies - me 
plate's been a touch full lately... ;-)

tinkered a bit with the Rainbow IDE... ;^>
