Bill, thank you for this thoughtful response.  hand-punching is no small
thing.  That is amazing dedication, and from what I know of you, I am not
at all surprised...

Yes, it was absolutely an assembler for the 6800 processor.

Thanks for mentioning the cassette for the Altair, that would be super
retro-geeky cool to play with...but yes, this is an extremely busy season
for most, if not all of us.

It looks like Monty McGraw might have come through with something, so let's
check out his page suggestion.

Thank you!
