Doesn't impress me. I myself am mostly analogue. ;)

Someone at 68kmla.org said it might be possible to get a Quadra 650 up
with 516 megs. They burn their own ROM SIMM! It also containa other
hacks, like turning off memory checks at boot time or bootable
filesystems. Awesome stuff.

The idea wasn't exactly mine, but i immediately saw the potential for
Trash80toHP_Mini is the tinkerer who made these and he is the one with
the hardware. I would do it a bit differently, less neat, more
oriented to get it up and running quickly, adhoc-woodframe-style.
I only have one full 68040, so i guess i can only provide the software
side. There is no sense in using 68LC040 for such a project i guess ;).
