I was complaining about X but then I saw Y

Recommended Posts

I was complaining recently about  floppy disks.  TI-99/4A is a super computer compared to this old beast. 

(I had to occasionally boot a Data General Nova with paper tape in the 1980s. :)   )

I really enjoyed that video!  What a difference a few decades makes.

Pretty cool. Now, of course, the task is to replace the tape reader with an SD device and provide an AVR interface to the switches to auto-load the bootstrap... ;)
