Like the others, latest article is fantastic! You do a good job making it sound understandable!

It would have been such a simple revision early on for them to fix that ... it begs the question did they know they were blocking DMA? -- perhaps no one in the original design loop became aware of the problem -- an oversight?  

A fix should be included in any future CoCo3+ and/or CoCo4 new and/or replacement motherboard ...
