Thats probably the Creator for Ultra 1/2s. I have a Leo (ZX) in an SS5 
and it pumps out a lot of heat which was one of my reasons for aiming 
for a VSIMM in the SS20. I dont need outstanding graphics. Plus my TGX 
just died in my SS10 and I could give the TGX my SS20 currently has to 
the SS10 and give the SS20 the cooler running VSIMM..... Not worried 
about losing memory. My banks aren't full anyway. probably way TMI....
