More pressing than SEO? Give your head a shake.

Here's an initial release of a Mockingboard (and Phasor) test suite I've been working on recently:

It's mainly an audit for emulation correctness, but doubles up as a set of tests for real hardware to help identify faults.

See the above link for details (and a .dsk image), but a quick overview is it tests all the sub-systems on the cards (6522/VIA, AY-3-8913 and any speech SC-01 / SSI263 chips).

It's still in beta, as I've not got a full selection of cards to test it with. So if you try it and notice any failing tests with real (working) hardware, then raise a GitHub issue or report it here.
