Hi, David,

I'm happy to read about this.  I have a 3B1 myself and the bearings on
the hard drive are failing loudly.  I happen to have a WD2010
controller chip for the easy upgrade, and I've thought about looking
into the PAL/board mod to add an extra head.  There's little point to
the mods then trying to find a working MFM drive over 70MB but with an
MFM drive emulator, size is arbitrary and might as well be large
enough to do more than hold the full OS and a few local files.
