Digital History

I’m big into history of computing and weird hardware. Recently, I’ve been trying to get my MiST FPGA device online with an Amiga AGA core. I got an ESP8266 from Adafruit and connect it (with a SLIP router firmware) to the Internet at a whopping 38kb/s. It works, I can ping and telnet into it, but getting any sort of software running is really hard and time consuming. If I ever manage to get a BBS running on it, I guess that’d make a good blog post 😄.
