I used to have something similar when I was a kid - nightmare to dust! :D

Something makes me want to strip all the goodies off those boards though...

My lab notebook is one of these:

The video reminds me of Jim William's minuteman missile guidance system on his wall.
One can never have enough oscilloscopes.

a) I think you have too much spare time.
b) Your wall is no longer ROHS compliant.

I will make a point of not placing it on the market in the EU then.
Although it wouldn't be the first time that someone's tried selling a wall

They are ADCIS COMPUTER boards (you can get that much from the NINs). Might be Raytheon VAX 860 boards, maybe something to do with this contract http://articles.janes.com/articles/Janes-C4I-Systems/Air-Defence-Command-Information-System-ADCIS-United-Kingdom.html

I received this bookmark about 10 years ago from an American friend.
A close examination shows it was an XT motherboard (PCB reports: made in Taiwan).
