full simulation of Colossus 249, and Luminary131, on a virtual AGC block 2


I was thinking blinken lights though this fellow is light years ahead of what
I could do. Also I would think the project done on a single small board
with an fpga would be a better way to do it, brought out to the DSKY, or
built into it.

I was wondering what the annunciators, and servo outputs were hooked to.

If this guy is not running the full colossus, then there won't be a problem when
the program tries to gimble the descent engine, or is trying to track the radar
in high, low or auto mode.

very impressive though.
