This just arrived in the post:

The weird thing is, I didn't order it, and whilst I can pretty much guess what it is, since it fits my Evercade, I have no idea where it came from, or what files it will accept.

Weird. I suppose I need to go and look up EverSD.

EDIT - Turns out it came from @Icky to whom I'm very grateful :)
You are welcome. Looking forward to you getting it working

Maybe they'll need to invent a new upper level for him... Desperate Dan. ;-)
Intro retro computers since before they were retro...

Added code to the MiNT kernel (still there the last time I checked) + put together MiNTOS.
Collection now with added Macs, Amigas, Suns and Acorns.
