What have I done? I have made myself a fully functioning computer. Small, unusual, impractical, thick and heavy. I could have probably spent all the money on a decent modern device, but where's the fun in that? By fun I mean learning new things! Lots of them!
What follows is a detailed description of a custom hardware project I did awhile back. I previously posted a simple how-to on another site, but I’ve had a lot of questions about how this was done, so I decided to write a more detailed account of the project. It’s a little rambling, but I hope you find it interesting enough to build your own cyberdeck.
