Quick inventory today 💻 🖥️ 📱

Counting only smartphones and computers, I've got more than 50 CPUs... 😱

Recent ones: Apple M1, Intel i7
Oldest: Z80, 68040, 8086

The two ones on the pic are special:
- the AMD386 was running my first Linux PC
- the Cyrix MII created the first Mandrake

nice 386 computer, loaded with memory and a strange isa card. sadly its missing the cover...

found a couple of these tiny ascii terminals, there was even a catalog with them.

Thanks to everyone who participated in @DesertBus this year. From those of you watching and lurking in the chat to titans dropping $20k in an auction, each and every one of you were vital in getting our total to that absolutely astounding $1.1 Million raised. I am truly humbled.

8051 Dev kit by cygnal. Not sure how common this brand of 8051 microcontrollers is, but a cool find if i can manage to find some ic's for it.

There was a garbage can at work full of old emergency lights. Duck tape flashlight complete.
