Willem EEPROM Programmer!

My Willem EEPROM programmer came in the mail today. As discussed in an earlier post, I was hoping to get it working by running a Windows virtual machine on my Linux PC and routing the parallel port to it. However, it appears that QEMU is not quite up to snuff when it comes to effectively simulating a real parallel port. So, I ended up tossing a second hard drive in my computer and installed Windows XP on it, then setup Grub to dual-boot. It's kludgey, but it works, and I've confirmed that the programmer interfaces just fine.

Now I just need to get some data to program, and I can run the last set of tests on the program counter before moving on to the next stage of development.
