Now, this was posted on "Tue Feb 18, 2014". Nature's website offers an updated package from "March 05 2014". However the archive contains SV_XBIOS.PRG from "15/05/2013".

So now I don't know whether PeP likes to have his Falcon running one year late or that the site offers wrong version. :-(

Aaaaaand I can reply myself because the test program is still available. The version on their website is still the slow one so we've been throttled to 2/3 of possible performance for THREE YEARS so far. :-(

Communications mishap, I think. Sorry about that ! Good thing we found out about it :)
Ain't no space like PeP-space.

Great! Now the only missing piece is a GEM app for FW11 updates. ;-) (for us suckers without a JTAG cable...)

Even though I ended up getting a JTAG cable, I am still at FW10. Will possibly update it soon.

As a late comer to installing my SV, wish to express my gratification to all supporting the project over years and their long hours!

Maybe I can kick my brother Henrik into doing that. He has a streak of GEM-coding right now. :D

Sweet, while you've got the whip on him, get him to code... kidding!!

My brother doesn't do much, I should make him start coding on the Atari.
