An East German built this computer using a book back in the early 80s. He had to make trips to West Berlin to buy the RAM chips using a day pass. It's a Z80 clone based around the MME U880.

Well, while ignoring the news as much as possible and staying indoors I've finally gotten around to designing a Eurorack PSU that I like. One day, some day, it will come from Oregon to Ottawa to be populated.

Heading to Mont Tremblant (Quebec) and later this week, New York.

I wish I enjoyed travel more because I have an objectively privileged life in this regard but I really don't enjoy it. (Even worse: NY is by plane, so heavy carbon footprint and I'll spend the trip in mortal terror).
