Nice watches however. My concern is the PIC controler dies before
the TUBES do. :(
While off topic, modern parts do have a short lifetime compared to
the old classic computers of the 50's and 60's. Still many old CPUs
are not in use since they use too much power. So is building modern
memory cards for the old machines a good idea?
