Guess that's a lot of time down the tubes :rofl:
I'd love to own a profit share of his power company.

I love this kind of project. I've been working on a homebrew computer for a while, but to do it with tubes is a pretty unique approach for this century.

There was something like that I saw once, but I think a 6800 implemented with relays.
(As someone who worked in a Strowger exchange, that's not a house I'd like to visit)

That's worse than an uncoordinated group of tap-dancers

I'd say relays are a lot closer to Crossbar than Strowger, Crossbar is reasonably quiet.

Tom... :smiley: :+1: :coffee: :australia:

That was a lot of fun to watch.
I wonder how they implemented the algorithm for solving the linear equation set.
I was surprised to see that there were no self-latching relays in the memory core. That's where my mind goes when I imagine relay memory, but I guess that's more of an SRAM thing.
