Just read a post where a dude chased his tail trying to fix his beloved 130XE. He found a bad Antic Chip. I got me to thinking, how rare are replacement Chips for our 8-bits (30 plus years after they were introduced/produced)? And, more importantly, where will we get replacement Chips in the future, near and far? I know Brad probably has a butt-load of them, but even his supply will be exhausted someday. What are the answers? Emulation? Will we all be subjected to Emulation down the road? Questions to ponder as the New Year approaches.
