Thread: Hello from Tucson Arizona

  1. #1

    Default Hello from Tucson Arizona

    Hello! I built my first computer, an 8008, from the plans in Radio Electronics (or was it Popular Electronics?) back around '75 or '76.
    Just recently, a dark and dusty corner of the building I work in at the UNiversity of Arizona coughed up one of the S-100 computers I built in the late 70s for doing laboratory control and data acquisition. Someone had scarfed the power supply, but I bet a couple of cheap switchers would handle running it just fine. I even found the code listing for what is (hopefully) still in the EPROMs.
    At some point I will be out looking for a 5.25" floppy drive or some kind of emulator that will allow me to fire up CP/M and write some new code for it.

    Welcome! Very cool looking computer there. I'm in Colorado, so you're actually one of the closest forum members I've seen yet!
