Help on a 1998 Award BIOS chip

Actually the TL866A universal programmer comes with a PLCC-32 adapter included for about $50, including slo-mo shipment from the other end of the world and the extra tariff for the Chinese steel that must be hiding in it. And probably sharing a ride in the same boat, I should get some W29C020P’s. Which might chooch or not, on account of them containing either real or fake chips. In the latter case I will only will have lost a few American rupees and I can leave a blistering negative comment to further sink the already alarmingly low rating of my seller before he switches identity. So odds are in my favor. All electro-magically transacted on ePay based on fuzzy pictures for the gullible and funny money from PayBuddy. Oh the miracles of your new world economy.

And lifting the sticker reveals the BIOS chip is just a W29C020P-12, a
regular 256k x 8 Flash memory, 5V chip. Duh. Mystery solved. Of course way
newer and with many more address lines than my DataIO 29B can read and
program. Time has come to buy a small, modern, cheap, infinitely capable
Chinesium EEPROM programmer. Read: the kind of practical, affordable,
sensical and useful equipment I usually steer away from. Ebay here I come.
Or make a programmer with an Arduino, since it's 5V.
Hmmm, you don't happen to be a subscriber to AvE's Youtube channel, perhaps?
Why... Would that be good or would that be bad?
Keep your disk in a vice!
Just make sure that the programmer you get chooches properly. ;)
