Well done, IDE with good compatibility

The larger one is the Megabus to 68k socket adaptor. The idea behind this is that a Mega ST can use two 68k upgrades without stacking

The smaller one is a Megabus to IDE adaptor but with inline buffers. Its based on the PP interface. I've added an ATF22V10 instead of the Gal as the chips are still easily obtained.

:thumbup: You could move that LS chip into the GAL now you got a 22V10. PP only used it for its open collector, as the 16V8 couldn't do that. The 22V10 can.
