 I know the electrically alterable devices are cool, but there is a warm fuzzy feeling I get when I put the opaque tape over the window and I know my bits are safe. At least it is more efficient than driving to culver city with a papertape.

I am into vintage machines and eproms are widely used in the original hardware.

I haven't actually used one in a decade, but I think fondly of them as I have used them over the course of my career for 6502, 8085, 80186...

Making SCSI boot roms for Apple ][ hard disk adapters was fun.

I have been trying to use a willem programmer to program a 2732 chip for my car. Unsuccessly I might add.

I currently have a few reclaimed EPROMs sitting on my desk that I'd like to use for a retro/restoration project. I'm going to have to borrow a burner, as I do not own one. It seems that EPROMs can still be recovered easily from older equipment...in the days when manufacturers used IC sockets.

I use my Eprom programmer at least 3 times a week. I'm currently restoring a Tron arcade machine right now. It was converted to Two Tigers, so I bought an Eprom programmer and eraser and converted it back to Tron by programming some blank eproms. I had to do that because of how hard it is to find original chips that haven't suffered bit rot. They might be considered obsolete, but for some projects for those of us that don't throw everything away in favor of new technology, they're still very important.

Ahh. Arcade game restoration. That makes a lot of sense! (Post some instructables on the topic!)

Not interesting enough... atleast Tron isn't. But I should be getting an empty Robotron cabinet soon... and possible a broken Asteroids that would make much better topics.
