Gigatron in the frozen Northeast US

Post by bjchapm »

Hello, all!

Here's a quick picture of my Gigatron, built from a kit offered by RetroTechLyfe here in the US. Thank you to Marcel and Walter and everyone else in this amazing community. I haven't done anything like this since I was a kid (I had an OSI Challenger way back in the day), and it has just been a complete blast. My gigatron did not work at first (or second, or third) power-up, but with patience and the documents on this site, I found the bad solder joint and it works perfectly now.

Next step is to figure out how to use my Arduino to load more programs on to it - but I am just blown away by how much this can do already. Congratulations to everyone involved!

Very best wishes,

Ben

Very nice. Welcome. RetroTechLyfe uses different colors for the blinking lights, great.
