Practical Electronics August 1979

Ah, I remember vividly that August 1979 edition of Practical Electronics. I was 11 years old, and from the moment I laid eyes on that cover, I just knew that I was going to build one.

Several months and much pocket money later, I had my Compukit. What an amazing machine - 4k of memory was more than enough for my first simple BASIC programs. I soon learnt 6502 machine code.

Years passed, and I moved on to other machines (most of the Atari 8-bit and 16-bit line, followed by IBM clones and Macintoshes). Somewhere along the line, my Compukit and I parted company. Without a Compukit, I decided to do the next best thing - I built an emulator in software!

I hope you enjoy the various Compukit information that I've gathered here. If you have anything to contribute please email me.
