JRC Prague (used to be the only Atari dealer for Czech Republic) is
still slightly support Atari computers. The last thing done by Jiri
Richter is a modification of 4 MB ST-RAM card to hold 14 MB of RAM. It's
very cheap (cheaper than empty ST-RAM card).

I remember we were talking about possibility of modifying card to 8 or
10 MB RAM. Now we have somebody that is actually able to build it. He
would need just the idea how to do it. Somebody should also disassemble
TOS to prove that it's able to detect 8 or 10 MB RAM correctly.
