Somehow I have spent most of the weekend (including the free day on friday) with drawing schematics, soldering and programming,

The last picture I have of my old computer was from before i finished highschool. Time for a new one.[^]

The old notebook to the left runs a terminal emulation and is connected to the old computer over RS232. It also is used to program EPROMs. That board nect to the mouse is the EPROM programmer, which I repaired and got to work again this weekend. The old notebook is also used to sample the cassete tapes and convert the WAV files to binaries with a program I have written.

The Elf is running the first program I ever bought and still use. It's a debugger and on the screen you can see the current state of the processor's registers. The hardware, including the monitor, is from 1978 - 1980 and came as a kit (except for the monitor).

The keyboards are old and worn, so they are not a pleasure to use anymore. That's why i want to build a more modern version of the old computer. Ok, I admit it. I do it because it's fun to solder together a computer and get it to work. Anyway, before I have expensive boards made, I first build a prototype and test the stuff... on the old computer.

To begin with, here's[^] a little more memory and a ROM for the little operating system I'm working on. I'm sure I once swore never to build a memory prototype on perfboard again because of the wiring, but I probably never learn and did it again. Tomorrow I will install it and can then work on the OS.
The language is JavaScript. that of Mordor, which I will not utter here

This is Javascript. If you put big wheels and a racing stripe on a golf cart, it's still a f***ing golf cart.

"I don't know, extraterrestrial?"
"You mean like from space?"
"No, from Canada."

If software development were a circus, we would all be the clowns.
