26 clocks in a border, anything useful?

If you had 26 clocks in the border, could anything useful be done with the extra clocks? If you need to do a XXXX,X this could be dropped to XX,X to save an extra clock.

Make some double, triple sine table lookups for your excellent dynamic raster based effect... whichever it is.

I would say, if you have 27 clocks in the border, things would get truly interesting..

Let the cpu rest. Setting bits on and off all the time, it is so hard.

ZMhz mode switches off the VIC bus access, so it will show sprites but the sprite data will be whatever the CPU was loading/storing.

Thinking about it, on a non bad line, you would be able to pull into 2mhz on the first clock of the border which would give you an extra 10 clocks to give you 36 clocks on non bad lines, or 40 clocks in 38 col mode.

Damn. I should have expected that really.
