And the small space where all this madness is kept!
Hahha my parents "gave" me the stackable washer/dryer room when I was 12 - I set up a lamp, a workbench, and shelving in there. Had to work with the door open though. I know this feeling!
Before work today, my son snuck in for some learnin':
He can actually find a good bit of letters on the keyboard when asked, and will sometimes make accurate sounds based on the letter he's pressing.
I have a copy of SB text-to-speech, that's what's happening tonight, come to think of it.
Some stuff from after work:
What's that sitting there beside the V30?
Why, it's only the most authentic 8087 you've ever seen, certainly not a $7 USD part from China! I'm glad I scanned and uploaded manuals from the previous JUKO NEST board I had, I had to set some jumpers and switches, I would not have been able to guess at them.
Totally legit 🤣!
If I doubt the authenticity enough, or if it mis-performs, I have an authentic 8087-1 in my display case, I could swap them.
I'm actually puzzled as to why this computer didn't have an FPU - there is definitely a CAD program on here, and empty directories (42 Mb HDD) with software that would have made use of an FPU.
