10 Years ago

Postby vbriel » Nov Sat 02, 2013 4:26 pm

It has been 10 years since I started making the replica 1. My first working prototype was on breadboard and looked like a wired mess. The replica 1 was the first design I made into PCB and I really enjoy the fact that modern PC's give us the ability to design hardware and order boards right over the internet. The first 20 units were assembled only, but after that I started offering kits. It has been a fun and educational 10 years and I hope that everybody who has one of my kits has had fun building them. I enjoy designing and making the kits and will continue to do so as long as I am able to. More good things planned for the next 10 years so stay tuned.

Congratulations Vince, and happy anniversary :-)

I don't have a Replica 1 but I do have the MicroKim (with expansion RAM) and the Pocketerm. As I mentioned elsewhere, I soldered the MicroKim together with my stepson who had never soldered anything before, and it worked the first time. I hope you can keep coming up with new and interesting replicas and emulations of old computers so I can repeat the experience. And of course I hope I'll have the honor of helping you again in the future if necessary.
