Amazing how small an ARM1 was in terms of transistors, due to its RISC architecture. The 68000 being 68k transistors by comparison. I like the CISC instruction set so much more, though, it’s like someone took C operators and made them mnemonics. Which is, I guess, what happened!

Finally getting *somewhere* with the 7800RGB. The video output from Maria is so jittery I've actually given up trying to use it and have instead done Maria's job for her and assembled each scanline from the display lists being read in!
