But all pshaw-ing aside, I do have a KIM-1 single-board computer that
I'm pleased to still have (my childhood Digi-Comp 1, Think-a-Dot and
GENIAC were victims of house cleaning!). The site
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KIM-1 has a nice page on this computer.
In short, it was an in-expensive single-board computer system
developed by MOS to show off the capabilities of their new CPU, the
6502 (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MOS_Technologies_6502 ). It
was wildly popular (to the chagrin of Intel and Motorola) and lead to
the choice for CPUs in the Apple ][, Commodore, Atari, NES and others.
Cool to have the system. Nope-- not for swap, trade or for sale.
But I haven't powered it up in years (decades?). I'm busy this time
of year, but if I can get some time I'd love to get it working and
come to TCF.
