I finally got around to uploading pictures from my Altair 8800 build onto my SDF user gallery! I hope everyone enjoys them!

@jebug29 I think I might watch Wargames tonight in honour of your awesome machine

@xmanmonk @tbn97 If someone ends up making an IMSAI clone, I want in on that too!

Jerry Walker is considering doing an Altair 680 clone, although I think he's busy with other projects (like an ADM-3A board reproduction) at the moment

@xmanmonk Thanks ^ o ^ )/

I can't wait until someone (eventually) makes a reproduction Tarbell card. I'm gonna load so much software from cassettes.

@jebug29 OMG J! You have NO idea how much I drooled over one of those when I was like 12! Wow.

@gemlog I'm STILL drooling over mine and it's been about 4 months since I built it.

I have a parts list available on Google Drive with everything I bought to build it. I think there's a couple of mistakes I made when I ordered some stuff (iirc I didn't buy the right female molex connector or pins or something for the backplane power), but 99.5% of it should be there.

@gemlog Also Jerry Walker sells a more authentic backplane recreation on his website than the one I bought and used, although it's more expensive. He also sells bare 16K and 64K RAM cards
