The Classics

Presented in no particular order or organizational method, here are a few of my favorite classic computers and related items

My Homemade Mark-8 Computer

Side View Boards from left to right are: CPU, Input, Address Multiplexer, RAM (256 bytes installed, board holds up to 1KB!), Output, and Display. Note the advanced cellulose-fiber composite card cage!

Back View

Bottom View Look at all the pretty bus wires! Too bad the boards weren't laid out so the connectors lined up! :-(
