A little slow on the updates ;-) I've created a Gallery section with pictures that I have collected. If you have anything to add, send them my way.

New URL! I've grabbed the URL of http://www.compukit.org. I am planning to include *any* information, articles, manuals, software, etc. for the Compukit UK101 and the Ohio Superboard II computers. If you have any material you'd like to see here, please let me know! Also, I've set up a mailing list for discussions. To join, please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the words "subscribe compukit" in the body.

Happy New Year! I fixed a bug I had in the CMP and SBC instructions, and now I have a prompt! I get "DCWM_" appearing on the screen! Now my problem lies in the keyboard emulation. Memory location 0x223 (I think) should contain the ASCII value of the key pressed, but I'm getting random values in here. Anyone have any suggestions/working code for the keyboard emulation?

Work on my Compukit emulator is progressing. I now have a mostly-working 6502 core. I decided to build one from scratch instead of taking one of the publicly available cres out there. There's just a few subtle bugs I'm working out (like the correct flags after an SBC or BIT instruction, etc). I've attempted to run the ROM images I have on this core, but I'm getting stuck in the keyboard scanning routine. I think that I've still got a buggy instruction somewhere...

I was looking through my old collection of magazines and happened to come across an old issue of Practical Electronics - the July 1980 edition. In it is a section titled Micro Prompt. It is a collection of programs and tips for the Compukit. I have started to transcribe the article into HTML. You can check out the unfinished article here.

I haven't had much luck locating anyone who wants to part with their Compukit, so I've resigned myself to writing an emulator. The hardest part is getting a hold of the ROM images. My thanks to Leslie Ayling for supplying images from a Superboard II. I have started working with these.
