Good meeting you today, built out the kit with my son, did not take long, we listened to pink floyd the wall to get a idela of how long it took. Now working through some basic and looking at ram upgrade...

Just made it home from Seattle with my brand new Gigatron. Super stoked to use it. Plugged it in here and it still works great. Got the Pluggy McPlugface to work, played around with Wozmon and Basic a bit and can't wait to dig into it some more. It was great meeting you and hanging out at the Living Computer Museum. I had never heard of the place and wouldn't have gone if it weren't for the Gigatron. I'll be telling all my friends and coworkers, especially the ones in Seattle, about the Museum. It took me just over 2 hours to solder the kit and it worked the first time. Love it!
