Hi, just received my atmegatron, looking forward to getting to know it. How concerned should one be about the number of times the eprom can be rewritten? I have another piece of gear with flash memory, and its manual cautions that there is a limit, faults will start to occur after too many writes.

Hi,
The Atmega328 chip is rated at at least 10,000 writes, so there's nothing to worry about.
