Dutch MSX users Luppie (Erik Luppes) and Skyhawk (Jan Wilmans) both purchased a GR8BIT package last year as can be read here on our forums and now, they both opened a dedicated blog about the whole building and learning proces. Furthermore, Luppie started to fill a wiki here on MRC, dedicated to the GR8BIT. The GR8BIT project is an educational platform fully compatible with MSX2, offering a complete and relatively simple introduction to every aspect of engineering.

Very cool project.

MY soldering skills are terrible. But I can image this beeing a very satisfying experience to build your own MSX computer.

I will keep an eye on the blogs...

Hmm... Seems that Skyhawk has to recheck at least D5 signal of VRAM. Smile
