Where am I?

Well, forget everything I stated before. I seem to be changing my mind fairly regularity these days. I do not know if is because of the lack of sleep or I am being slowly changed by my wife to be more like her. If I was in marketing I would say, I have adapted in an everchanging environment as new information became known to me. Or some BS like that.

ROM

Prototyping the extra Flash ROM has turned out to be harder than I thought. I have decided touse a 8 Mb / 1 MB LPC bus Flash part. Since it uses the LPC bus, there is not a lot of signals to hook up. I tried to find a socket for the chip locally, but no one had one. I will need to order it from Digikey. But for the first prototype, I will just wire it up. This will allow me to get the code debugged. I have added the code to the FPGA, but without the circuit I cannot test it. I was hopeing that I would get some time over the holiday to build the circuit.
