Eh? The ROMs are essential for all of the 8 bit machines and the wording
from Amstrad is that as long as you're not selling (which we're not),
then you have their blessing.  It does get a bit fuzzy in that if you're
charging, as long as it's not for the ROMS, they're cool with it.

I'll hold off for now. I would appreciate it though if you could ask the
RH law-type-folks over the packaging of the ROMS. Remember, these ROMS
are not the same as a MAME or SNES ROM, but are (effectively) the OS of
the machine.

said we had the best two teams on Merseyside, Liverpool and Liverpool
Reserves." - Bill Shankly
