As an update on this, I just wanted to say that this is absolutely the best and most understandable 680X0 book I have ever read. I own a bookshelf of them and by far this is the most.... relatable.

Microprocessor Systems Design: 68000 Hardware, Software and Interfacing by Alan Clements
Third edition, 1997
1st published 1987
ISBN: 0-534-94822-7
PWS Publishing Company, Boston.

Alan Clements is a professor who taught at Teesside. His website is here: http://alanclements.org/index.html

You'll divine just from poking around his site that he has a particular approach to teaching by communicating broader and related concepts in a very genial way.

The Motorola 68020 and 68030 Microprocessors: Assembly Language, Interfacing and Design by Thomas L. Harman,
ISBN: 0-13-603953-7

10 years older than the other book, but on later CPUs. Smells lovely, of that old book coffee/chocolate and sunlight warm odor.

Today I received a Prism VTX5000, and I have been scammed.

No, Outsoft sold me exactly what he said he did. It's Prism who scammed me. I am completely happy with Simone Voltolini's presentation of the item and he did not mislead me in any way.

But, and this bears shouting:

WHY WOULD A MANUFACTURER RELEASE TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THINGS WITH THE SAME MODEL NUMBER?!?!

You see, I bought a Prism VTX5000 for my QL in the 80s. I ran up regular £300+ phone bills for my mum with it. It finally went away in 1998. I saw Simone was selling another, so I jumped on it. No. It's *completely* different. It connects to a Spectrum expansion port. It doesn't even have a serial port.

It's useless to me.

Damnit!
