Did I say three and a half? I meant six and a half.

Yes, it's in Lisp. The old (late last year) source tarball is up in
the same directory as all the screenshots (
http://www.dridus.com/~nyef/lispm/nevermore/ ), and I'm doing some
cleanup on the current sources in preparation for releasing them at
some point in the next day or so.
As fair warning, the old version reqiures a combined microcode image
that none of you have. The new version will require rom images for
the SIB config rom, the memory board config rom, and all seven boot
microcode roms. These files are (in order):
(here's where being a packrat and downloading every rom file and
disk image mentioned on the list over the past couple years helps.)
