I like the stuff on your website. I'm thinking more about this too. I
just don't know if I can bring myself again to wiring 2102's in a row
just to make 4KB of memory. It's real easy to add 64KB of memory on one
S-100 card. It's not exactly using vintage components, but being that
it's within the confines of a vintage form factor(S-100) and machines,
maybe that doesn't tarnish the retro factor. I see there's still some
activity on the vintage-computer.com forum about making S-100 boards.
