Thur 10/19: Let's work on the Apple II+ KiCad Schematic live! (Right now!). https://youtube.com/live/_R6WSO2lKi0?
This schematic is part of the Bit Preserve Github repo. That's where people use KiCad to redraw schematics for vintage computers.

For future me, the next time I need it.
It’s a silly design, but I love my compact Banana-to-USB adapter.

KiCad 7's PDF plotting is pretty awesome... depending on the reader you use.

Early in my career, a technical mentor revealed two myths about the Nyquist theorem. I cover them both in this video.
Once again, a friendly reminder to all #vintagecomputing fans to
GET THE DAMN BATTERIES OUT!
Even this small amount of corrosion on this memory battery killed a Tandy 200 by eating away about 7mm of a critical trace. Easy fix with a wire, but this could have been WAY worse.
If you own or collect old computers, go through them NOW and make sure you get all the batteries out.
If you are near the Toronto area, come and join us at The World of Retro Computing Expo being held on September 16th and 17th at the old Goudies Department Store located at 8 Queen Street North in Kitchener Ontario. Fun for everyone! #worc2023. https://www.worldofretrocomputing.com/2023-worc-expo
So. To get ahead on bills + to partially fund a trip I'm going to be going on next month, I'm probably going to be culling the hoard a bit.
Especially since I've unexpectedly gained a few systems I did not expect to gain.
If you're local to the South Bay Area, CA, and are potentially interested...watch this space. Cobbling together a price list.
