Well it does not work in CANADA as of today.
It was working about a month ago, as I am designing a 8 bit cpu
on the DE1 FPGA PCB, and I was looking for ideas.
Can one get all the web pages mirrored, I hate this loss information
with the net.
PS. Your site is fine, The Down Under sites are well DOWN and under.
Thinking about it the PDP 11 was strange beast, as having both character
and floating point data, even with split I&D you had way too small of 
memory.A simple 32 bit machine could have been a better option. Mind you 
the 11 was designed before 4K dram hit the market.
I have a nice 32 bit design but I want to get this 8 bit cpu working 
first. Any one knows what modern C compiler will compile Tiny C version 
1.0? Man with a CPU and no software.
