Sounds dumb, but what did that Make-A-Chip software actually show you?
Watched that video Solid Snake posted the link to. Is it just me, or are journalists becoming more and more annoying? The BBC Micro was a great machine for the time, the journalist was clueless "didn't lead on to the creation of a great big British computer industry", what a load of bollocks. ARM bitch, ARM! Not to mention the UK gaming industry that 8-bit machines like the Spectrum and the BBC Micro kickstarted.
