Quake is actually running very nicely, considering it's a soft FPU and I think that Quake uses it quite heavily. Can only imagine how well it could run with the hard FPU that they have showed off for...

A regular SSD will also stop working one day and so will anything else, so backups are always a good idea.

I think it doesn't have much to do with PAL vs. NTSC. In PAL modes, it will switch between 50/62.5Hz output and in NTSC modes it is 60/75 Hz. Most monitors will be happy though with 60, 62.5 and 75...

Then what about the 50 other settings or however many there are? Do you want jumpers for all of them? I would much prefer a jumper-less design and usually that also works without any problems.

16 bit width is useful as you only need one chip to get the basic 512kB expansion, but other than that, he could probably have designed it using 256k x 16 chips if he had those...
