What did they sell in 1975?
I remember reading articles in "73 Magazine" circa 1976 about the
interesting things that could be done with an 8008, some 2102s, and 500
linear feet of wirewrap but I was doing broadcast elctronics maintenance for
a living and far more inclined to race bicycles than dabble in electronics
in my spare time. Five years later I working in computing instead of
broadcasting and everthing started to change.
