A momentous moment...

So, I knocked up some ROM bank switching code this morning before work and only got to try it out this evening... and discovered after a few hours the simple mistake I'd introduced to keep myself on my toes... ;)

Anyway, with that in place, copying the ROM images to the flash ROM and making a bootloader to pull them in and I get this:

It's obviously pretty flakey... it worked in this shoot, but it seems to have about a 50-50 chance of actually booting and sometime between recording that video and writing this, I've noticed the cursor is no longer solid but stripey. But, this thing is so close now I can almost reach out and touch it... :)
