Now that you mention it, I'd like to see a discussion on it--and possibly
contribute to.  It is, after all, an 8-bit machine; which would seem to fit
in with this group.

My ET-3400 has been gathering dust for years.  It would be interesting to
get it going again and see what I could make it do with its fully-loaded
512 bytes of RAM.
