    A pretty good rant!

    I enjoyed this blog. Many of us came from the days where we wrote SW for resource limited machines. Now it seems the goal is to consume every resource just because it's there. It brought to mind a posting where someone said nothing should be written in 'c'... Really? Why, because you cant...

    I finally ported CP/M!

    This weekend I successfully booted CP/M on my bench system! It was quite a long journey. It started almost exactly a year ago when I restored an Altair I acquired several decades ago. After restoring the Altair I got CP/M working on it using an FDC+. That wet my appetite, but using the...

    Computpro RAM16 and IMSAI

    Hi, Can anyone tell me if I can get a Compupro RAM16 working in an IMSAI? From the few links I can find it doesn't appear to be promising. I don't mind making modifications to the memory card. I just don't want to make mods to the IMSAI. What 64k cards work well on the Altair/IMSAI buss? len
