You know, I remember when that phone came out. It was a huge deal, smallest phone available at the time. Crazy.

no2 - if you ever get around to pursuing 8bit NES programming, look me up - I have been trying to learn for a while now as I would love to resurrect that style of gaming.

I just don't know where to start. You see Randy up there beating the dead horse? Yeah, he was a hero to me.

Many old books; Prog & interfacing the 6502 First printing 1980 ( assembler and electronics)
CP/M for Osbourne
Graphics for the IBM PC
etc..
I did a huge clean out of my place in the last 4 years so I don't think I have the teletype or the 8" floppy drives but I do have the "OSI Superboard" which was my first computer. Still works. Just need a 5V power supply and TV with RF input :crazy:

I still use the 19" Rack that housed my third computer. I think I have the main processors board. You had to reboot to switch between the processors. Had one 6502, 6800, and 8080.
Sadly I had to sell the hard drive so I could afford to keep the rest of the system. The hard drive was an 80Meg Winchester. 4U. I had a separate 20A 120V recp for the drive. 19A to start ( would trip the breaker occasionally ) and 15A during operation. ... and why would I need some thing this large, never came close to using all the 48K of the RAM and there was no way anyone could use up 80M in a life time...

SIMM 256K, 512K, 1M

Not me but was asked by someone recently whether there was any way he could upgrade the old 386 he got so it'll be a bit faster.....

he actually still uses it (and has a new pc as well).

I've recently dumped a collection of 286s discovered in the shed and an old macintosh II
