In the beginning

Long time ago and far away, I subscribed to a magazine called Popular Electronics, and then a revolution started that was destined to change the world. Featured on the cover was a personal digital computer that could be built from kit – the MITS Altair 8080. Not the first computer kit, but definitely the one that kick started the personal computer revolution. It was a few years later that I built my first computer, a Cosmac Elf with a whopping 512 bytes of CMOS memory, built on a solder-less breadboard. Little did I know this was the start of my life long career/hobby.
