I was trying to find a spaghetti monster image on google to parallel the panel but can't find one that is comfortable to look at.

That picture of the back of the board looks like when a cat has got hold of a ball of wool my wife has been knitting with ( we dont have cats any more )

I must admit though, when we used to load a new game on the Sinclair "computer" , from a an audio  cassette,  ones imagination run wild with 5 minutes of modem chirps and whistles until it loaded .

That spaghetti board reminds me of grad school. We had an IBM 1620 that was kind of like our own PC that we could do whatever we pleased with. The IBM reader-punches were programmed with a plug-in card very much like that spaghetti board. If you changed that board, you could punch and read cards that had a completely different coding from normal. I carefully keyed in a very long program before I noticed that the last user had not removed their custom programming board. Doh!

Yeah, I have a few APPLE ][ cassettes in my vintage computing collection. I remember that old time (80's).

I didn't know FSM is a deity! I thought that was just a depiction of disorder :) Some interesting reading.
