40 years old and in almost mint condition. I took it apart to clean her up and look for any bad solder joints. Almost indistinguishable from new. Needed nothing but a quick wipe of the front keypad. This is just so cool. I made a video that I will post a little later.
It’s a Bulgarian made Apple II clone. It has the Bulgarian 1MHz CM630 Processor, an equivalent of the Rockwell 6502. It has 128kB RAM and 16kB ROM. This is just a photo I found but how fucking cool is this. A lot of Western tech was stolen and copied from the commies back in the days. I love this shit!!
I took it completely apart and refurbished it. It looks new.
Picked up another small Ethernet segment from the Sunny Beach computer shop – which is fucking amazing by the way!! Their service department is extensive and everything is fancy and new. They mostly focus on POS machines from hotels and restaurant. Cool stuff, especially hearing the Windows XP startup chime (lots of point of sale stuff still runs on XP and XP embedded).
It’s really quite gross around here right now. Super cold and garbagey and sad. Few more weeks. Few more weeks…..we can do it!!!
But hey, at least our beautiful neighbourhood got some snow and freezing weather. I wish I could just sleep for the next 2 months straight.
This is Chinatown in BC’s capital, we lived just about 3 blocks away on Johnson St. in our fancy sub-penthouse (it really wasn’t, I just like saying that…but holy crap that place is probably worth 1.5mil today and it’s a tiny 1 bedroom..but it was fancy and new and super cool).
The little grocery shop on the right had the best pigeon (Amalia still remembers cutting the head off before grilling) and just to your right was the sketchiest take out place with the best ‘duck and rice’ dish in town. Fuck it was dirty there, in a great way, of course, ate there 1-2 times a week.
To the left and just about a block away was Hush nightclub where I spend %92 of my time dancing, doing drugs, DJing, being drunk and obnoxious and making out with very questionable females.
