Looks great; good luck & congratulations. Just don't let Tony & the boys see that part about using 556's for baud rate & interrupt timers or THAT thread'll go on for another month...

*Almost* makes me want to put a PC behind the Burroughs B2000 console I've got gathering dust in my basement...

Subject: blinkenlights for everybody (?)

  Hi all.

Some weeks ago there was a thread about blinkenlights and consoles.
It was mentioned that a simple piece of hardware (just a few
resistors two transistors and 16 LEDs) connected to the printer port
of a PC can be brought to life when you run Ersatz-11.
Well, it took some time for me to decide whether I should go 'public'
with a project I intend to embark on.
In short: a *_full_* console on a PC that runs Ersatz-11.
The reason to announce the project is to get feedback. Am I on the
right track. Have a look, on this page (part of my website) you can
find a small ZIP file that contains the draft document that descibes

Any comment is appreciated.
