Thanks to everyone who responded to my query about IIci upgrades.
Evidently the Apple people are putting together a more comprehensive
study of the issue, but I'll just summarize as follows
 - Bill suggested using a video card, since if you don't then the video
   contends with the cpu over memory.
 - Short of a video card, others have recommended switching to black and white
   video instead of color.
 - Also, there was a suggestion to put the smaller
   of unequal memory chip sizes in bank A, decreasing the likelihood of
   a collision between video and cpu.  e.g. 4M in A and 16M in B.
 - Several recommended a cache card, such as the Daystar Powercache or the
   Apple IIci cache card.
 - Others have said Radius Rocket 33 runs MCL, but Rocketshare doesn't yet,
   but that's okay unless you want to do some things that need Rocketshare
   (MCL doesn't).
 - There is also an Apple upgrade path involving swapping the motherboard
   and some other stuff, which is more expensive, but maybe more compatible.
Thanks again!
