I made an update to my blog, the first since 2012. This is the port of the 1977 Basic interpreter I have been working on all winter. 40 years in the waiting. It is not complete there is no file or program store load I/O yet. Some of he cursor I/O in the terminal emulator still needs updating. But the math package is installed As far as I have tested the baseline functionality is there. it can run simple programs and gives the same answers as the emulated version.
here is a link to the project blog http://www.delectra.com/toys/?p=145

For the non historian direct link to the photo of the project (the big orange square is a peice of paper covering the LED that would blind the camera sensor) :

There is not enough free memory to run any of the game demo. This will have to wait for the Mega 1248P-Xplained Hardware version, which at 11 Mhz will be too slow for the TFD.
