Odd "endianness" [was Re: RE: Base 64 posts to the list]

I was just trying to squeeze Peter Jennings code for the KIM-1 into a single

1K worth of EPROM that would self load. There was enough space if I didn't

include the opening moves. I wanted to use the empty space in my KIM-1 debug board EPROM. Some of the test use so little space. I finally split it into

two blocks. So once one gets their KIM-1 working again, they can play MicroChess.

I've not tried to play it yet. I have to pull out my chess board.

So, some interest in Chess playing. I have my KIM-1 working on my prototype

6532 to 6530 adapter.

I'll run thru some moves with any new chess program I find.  I'm so rusty
and try such oddball moves in messing with them that I lose too much of the

I first had a copy of Sargon for the Apple 2 eons ago, and it was
impressive for the time.  Also useful for doing study of positions and the
like too.

I really like Adventure and got totally geeked out meeting Don Woods @ VCF
West (thanks guys who put on VCF West again)
