Computer setup of yesteryear!
This picture shows the now almost finished computer system. The case is still a work in progress. It needs a MicroATX power supply (the one I inherited with the case was dead), a modified front and then a fresh coat of paint. I have a spray can of gloss black ready and waiting.
This picture shows that I am in the process of formatting diskettes. I have found a couple of 3.5 inch drives that I am using now so I am able to format 80 double sided tracks. That gives me about 395KB of space on each. Yes, that is KiloBytes.
My next project, which is waiting on some parts that have been ordered, is to attempt to attach an ATA/IDE harddisk to the system. More to come about that.
