   There was a book published in the early to mid 80's sometime which went
into quite exact detail on designing and building an 8bit microcomputer, using
the Z80 I believe. Unfortunately, I don't recall the exact name, and my copy
of it was lost years ago. I believe it was something like "Building Your Own
Microcomputer" and I thought it was a fascinating book. Anyone else recall
this book?
