    sry to say, but your contest is not honest or not fair for all entries, as old all known projects from past are also legible to entry. like 6502 and some other big ones. they did have years before to develop. but other competitors starting from now, only had 2 months time.
    and winner is … :)

    i am honored to say, that
    a winner is Bus Blaster version 10.0 released on pure 7400 chips, no cpld, no mcu.
    sad i was too late this year to entry, but anyway it would be almost possible to release this one on 7400 :) it would be editors choice :)
