Very nice ... now go forth and add some sidecars to that machine, it looks too skinny!

(I can't remember my unboxing ceremony .. it was 32 years ago.)

I was given mine a few months ago. Reading the posts in this forum and the information on the main page has enabled me to enhance it significantly. You should especially look at the Jr-IDE. It maxes out the memory, allows you to boot for and IDE device, disk on module being the popular choice, and adds a real time clock. I got mine a few weeks ago and love it.

That should have been " boot from an IDE"
