What a fantastic project and series of articles. I scanned over them and read bits and pieces. It is quite a bit over my head still, but as time permits; I want to re-read these word for word and see if I can learn more.

I was under the impression that from the CoCo’s cartridge slot only the CoCo1/2 allow DMA to be performed, not a stock CoCo3? I got that from the time that John Kowalski was on CoCoTalk and he was talking about a cart he had designed (or was designing) which was quite interesting.
