That's what I liked about the machine. When I realised that, if I designed a microcoded stack machine, I could make it run something very close to Forth in the 4 months I had to finish it, I knew I had to do it that way instead of a more conventional design (I took some implementation ideas and the assembly syntax from the 6502).

In the end, I wrote an incomplete Forth compiler for it, but I don't know where the floppies I wrote them to ended up.
