And we're off.... I think.

A project log for Lacey Mk I

A Homebrew 68k Computer for Shits & Giggles

Creating a log just to chart my progress (or lack thereof).

I've got a copy of 68000 Microcomputer Systems: Designing and Troubleshooting and have read through the early parts a few times, as well as reading up on what others have done before. My interest in the 68k is due to it being used in some of my favourite machines, namely the Sega Megadrive/Genesis and the Atari ST.

Over the last couple of years I finally made the leap from higher level languages down to assembly, writing a columns clone for the Atari Falcon in 68k Assembly, and I've always wanted to make an Operating System, so I figured why not build a computer to write one for?

My free time is limited, my hardware foo is lacking, but I'm chipping away. First stage: get this sucker free running!
