It appears assembling a lil homebrew Z80 compy is in my future, as I have been given an RC2014 kit along with most of the supported modules.

This is very much my bullshit.
7ish MHz? You could squeeze a NES emulator into that
@Mainebot indeed! and even have joypads plugged up and such
@djsundog imagining what a fully built fully expanded board would look like under a thin plexi box with some subtle LED lighting.
@Mainebot Z80 is perfect for some nice status blinkenlights too
@djsundog maybe some peripheral attachments too
@Mainebot I could probably rig an interface to my Kaypro's floppy drives without too much hassle...
@djsundog woof, nice!
@djsundog oh man, I’ve considered that thing so many times...
@requiem me too, it's been in my "one of these days" queues, but someone decided to bump it and I couldn't be more pleased ;)
@djsundog that’s awesome, can’t wait to see what you do with it.
@requiem first thing I do is a painful amount of soldering lol
@djsundog what do you mean, that’s the best part!
@vertigo I'll be at the head of the queue when the time comes, friend :)
@djsundog must share video clips of beeps boops and blinkenlights once it is assembled!
Definitely a technological treasure worthy of a blue metal project box with walnut end pieces.
