Nice. Old computer books can be very interesting. I recently picked up
"Computer Peripherals That You Can Build" by Dr. Gordon Wolfe. I've spent
much time going over it, reading up 8-bit data buses and how to interface
with them. It then devels into what really fascinates me : switches and
blinken lights! OK, so maybe the switches is in fact a joystick and the
blinken light is a DAC controling a plotter. :)

It details a cool interface for sending serial data over electrical wiring.
 Sort of a bare bones X10. And of course much much more.
