      I saw cordwood style mounting on old computer boards back in the early 70s. Thankfully that method was soon abandoned as servicing was almost impossible, just imagine having to change a transistor (ICs? what ICs?!?) in the middle of a board assembled like that. Just no way…

      That shield is just hilarious, now can’t wait for the inevitable followup: a toilet paper dispenser shield! w/servos and smell sensor:)

      Hello Dave,

      You are discovering internet is a network of ‘endpoints’ and you are one of them. Internet is not the single server (youtube) model. Difficult to admit, but every piece of your work should be under your control. More difficult to to it, yes. But with a symetric link, you become more ‘internet friendly’.
      One day, you will really collect your trafic on your machines 😉

      Yeah, the quality of the soviet era consumer electronics…

      This particular calculator was very popular. I never this one (went straight to programming i8080), but have a lot of friends who had it and were quite proficient programming it during the school years.

      The daughter board supplies the high voltage (20-30V) for VFD as well as the ~1V for the VFD heater thread. The weird shaped thing with a screw is an inductor.

      Keep up the good work.
