Vintage Computers

I am a fan of vintage computers, and have acquired an Altair 8800 clone (see which is a great tool for real programmers. Apart from its historical significance (the Altair 8800 was the first personal computer in widespread use, and led to the large-scale adoption of Intel’s x86 series of processors; it is the machine on which Bill Gates and Paul Allen implemented their first famous BASIC programming interpreter), it is also a great tool for learning assembly language programming. Here is photo of me playing with the ‘blinkenlights‘….


Here is me with my rare and very collectable Tandy TRS-80 Model IV (here shown running TRSDOS)… Perfect for practicing assembly programming on the Z80 processor 🙂
