Fixed the truck yesterday - recap of the Engine Management Computer - all three Electrolytics leaked, ate up a trace or two, and went out. Put it all back together, about the only codes I get now are 111 and 10 plus a couple from the ECU relearning it's air/fuel settings - so were back to healthy. So yeah, truly a "vintage computer" activity recapping a very late 1992 Ford EEC-IV. Basically a "free" repair since I had the caps on hand in a nice quantity anyway. Next up is oil change from running in "Zombie Mode" for a few days (gas in oil from running to rich without the ECU).
I guess now as far as computers go it's back to the regular scheduled show, I'm tempted to pull out the Tandy 1000A and start work on the 8087/V20 upgrades and building a custom gamepad for it since the Versa have been roaming the house like wild cattle lately.
