      My memories are mainly just limited to reading, and often to be stopped by an unsupported SIO or flash chip. I once actually wrote a newer BIOS I had ripped from a newer revision of a mainboard to an older, and it worked (so far I tested). But it was only some dirt cheap mainboards (with socketed chips) from thin clients I got as a six pack for a single Euro on ebay. So I didn't yet dare to flash mainboards on my productive machines with it - yet.
      Stop TCPA, stupid software patents and corrupt politicians!
