Hi Everyone,

Beginning assembly on this one! Just got the SD card holder and a few resistors installed.

The PCB is really nice and easy to solder.

Main board is complete. I had a devil of a time getting the chips into the sockets but other than that it went well.

I hope I can finish the front panel this weekend and try entering some programs via the switches!

And all is well and running! Here's the computer after having run a little front-panel program to add some numbers.

So far everything has worked perfectly, but I haven't tried a keyboard or monitor yet. A really fun kit to build and play with!

And now ... with Zork!

Assembling the board was straightforward, and the various utilities to get CP/M setup worked great too!
