Hi Bob;

When I can buy one of those programmers that runs on the MAC OS, please let me 
know.

I would much prefer to offer a fellow enthusiast $20 to provide a programmed 
chip then get involved with Windows (even if it would open the opportunity for 
Lady Heather...humm).  I get too much exposure to it at work to be willing to 
bring such suffering home.  Sadly, I cannot use my work machines for anything 
along these lines or this would be easy.

I do have a DOS machine...an LX200.
