== Which Vintage Computer Is Right For You? ==
- The Decision Is Weighty, The Outcome Irrelevant -
1) incredibly clever people who make FPGA boards that solve intractable problems
1) somehow restore the orig floppy controller. probably $50 if I can even find one; will be shocked if it "just works" and no other mods have been made
2) buy a $50 set of english ROMs
3) try to burn my own ROMs

- ROMs: $50
- Ultrasatan: $120
- USB adapter: $50
- Candles: $36,000
Total to fix this piece of shit: $36,190
is this worth it?
