I'd suggest @leo start a show called That Week in Tech, but, uh, namespace collisions are the hardest problem in computer science, just behind ordered lists.

Found this cool blog post about putting together a front panel full of blinkenlights and programming switches for the , got to the end of the article, and also found that its author is in the 'verse at @jes so that was nifty!



I also followed @retrocomputing@gup.pe using for any other fans who might want to help alpha test the groups functionality

Here's one for @ajroach42 as well as and fans

This is the -go with keyboard attachment running a c64 emulator and loading Infocom's "Planetfall" from d64 images on the microsd card.

Pocket C64 anyone?

My officemate brought me this marvelous specimen, his grandfather's single owner 1984 Model M2 keyboard

A late delivery has provided me with my 4gb CF card for the MobilePro linux project, so that's off the "waiting for parts" bench and back on tomorrow's agenda

The MCX-128 expansion pack for the TRS-80 MC-10 has arrived!

Tomorrow will have some serious BASIC programming going on.

The MCX-128 expansion pack for my TRS-80 MC-10 was delayed until today but it should be incoming shortly

fans, I am extremely pleased to be welcoming my latest orphan, the spectacularly short-lived TRS-80 Micro Color Computer MC-10, to the lab!

Time for another show and tell!

I'm quite pleased to introduce you to the NEC MobilePro 900, a "handheld" PC powered by a XScale PXA255 processor and running Microsoft Windows for Handheld PC 2000 (build 9546-126)

Should have a couple more new additions to the lab bench over the next few days - very excited!

I might not have a working display panel for my Data General One but at least I have this now!

Laptops used to be upgradable and expandable by design, rather than being disposable.

It is my pleasure to welcome this well-stickered Zenith supersPORT to the bench.

Rocking a blazing fast 12 MHz 80c286 processor, all the RAM anyone will ever need, and two 1.44 Mb floppy drives, this is some of the best that 1990 has to offer!

I have one final concall to attend for daygig today.

After that, I'll pop into my lab and take some pictures of the latest addition that arrived today.


Needless to say, if you have a working Data General One gathering dust in some dark corner and would like to offload it on a sucker for a couple of bucks, connect 19200-8-N-1 to my DMs

So, finally had a moment to take apart the Data General One's display to see what replacement might take. Part number queries are not helpful so far. I might have to retrofit something newer (but not the 1080p pictured in the last photo).
