Forgot one unusual machine I haven't had the time to fully explore: a TI-980.
TTL CPU, serial interface, and switches + blinkylights.

Not sure what I could _do_ with it (dunno what it needs in the way of
peripherals, etc.) I think it's more of a process control computer
than a general purpose / BASIC / FOCAL machine.

With the severe lack of docs, I haven't even powered it on yet.
