OOOOO exciting times

I also purchased a shipment of DPDT relays

So I can make that electro mechanical computer that can play noughts and crosses or chess

I want to be able to showcase computation in a way that demystifies it, and shows the internals of a digital computer in a way that is tangible and observable to the human eye

It has been many years coming for a lot of these hardware projects for me, I have wanted to build these giant, slow computers for a long time

And of course there will be a build log for all of this here on the fediverse!

Absurdly so. California only has ~7300 ICU beds in a state of 40 million people!!!

It won’t take much to crash bandicoot the health system.

If there was a way I could help with refurbishing ventilators.
