I imagined it would be something like that. So... the cartridge can mask
out the entirety of the MC-10's ROM and RAM, huh? Interesting. The CoCo
can't do that. (And now I'm copying this message to the CoCo list because
it became on-topic.)

The only gripe I have with this machine now is that stupid 4K VRAM
limitation. I'd really like to try a hack to put more in, even if it's
noncontiguous. (Say, at $2000 or $3000.) Suggestions?

Oh... yeah, pics!
