Frank(ly), is really ?! (I just wanted to ask if the author of ppclibemu and BPPCfix might be of help)

Btw. also thanks for helping Toni on this problem.

Yes, but theoretical physics at the University of Zurich, right? ->

I am not sure about reengineering approach ?

Because, according to above link (check under "PowerASM)" he got access to prototype hardware, which allowed him to play with the PowerPC CPU's much time before endusers could buy the final hardware products. (and probably got some more infos about from board developer, I guess)

Perhaps, but according the above project list, Sam might be also of help specially with his good knowledge about PowerPC (didnt he wrote PowerASM & WarpOS) and thus we will newer know if he is interested to project while it does not check, right ? (now we can only guess)
