Up and running!

Believe it or not, my friend James got this beast up and running! At first he wanted to simply harvest one of the floppies, but when he had it in his hands he decided to see if it would boot. We got it to read the massive 640K ram bank and it was pumping out a display to a monitor. We could not get it to continue after that as we had the wrong type of keyboard attached. Stay tuned, as this yello monster will be featured on his youtube channel in a week or two.

    Thanks Ben! I wasn't sure if people would be intersted in this type of post. So many of us grew up on these thing. My friend James was only 10 or so when he started building systems. He made me feel like a rookie and I been building systems for 20 years now.

    I'll definitely be posting more as I go through each old systems. I am very excited as the Mac's are booting up and some have OS X on them. Way more current than the last Mac I had (Macintosh!)
