#Retrocomputing nerds, what's your oldest computer thing that has survived over the years with you? And do you still use it? Does it still work?

Huge Star Trek fan here, but I got to say: The Orville is better than all the recent Star Trek franchises I've seen.

You can roast me now.

Dennis Kuschel built a minicomputer with a homebrew TTL CPU - it's an 8 bit CPU with 16 bit address space, but it runs a virtual 16 bit CPU which can run Contiki, a multitasking OS with TCP/IP stack and C compiler. The machine even serves its own website:
mycpu.eu/

It turns out that the Kirby games not working on the SD2SNES is a known incompatibility.

That is a bit disappointing, but in the scheme of things, not that big a deal. A LOT of stuff works perfectly.

At first I thought that the SD2SNES might be over-hyped. It seemed like a significant amount of stuff wasn't working. But it turns out, when you actually read the docs, that you need to get and install the DSP ROMs to make it fully work. Once I did that, it loaded and ran almost everything. For some reason I haven't been able to get the Kirby stuff to run, but it could just be a couple of bad ROM files.

And now..I am going to head downstairs and give the SD2SNES a spin.

Hmm... don't think I did that post quite right...

Of course I had to add a command line tool so that I can access Mastodon from the retro computers.
This is basically Rainbow Stream for Mastodon.
