Yes, and you can control the floppy insert/eject operations all from the 
joystick rather than needing a computer console etc...

Are you talking about folks taking tile based 2D games and running 
algorithms to 3D-ize them into "new games" ? I'm wondering why you connect 
this and the MiST ? Just curious.

Nice! I never even thought about someone setting up an FPGA to do that. 
The same would be cool for old LISP machines or a Thinking Machines 
emulator. That'd be really interesting.
