My first system was, IIRC, an Intersil 6100 (single-chip pdp-8 clone)
that my Dad designed and I wire-wrapped. It had a four digit LED
display and a keypad. I wrote my first real-world-affecting
program on it by using a 74c06 as a speaker driver, controlling it
with a single bit, and then flipping that bit with a hand-coded loop
to make all kinds of sirens. Good times!
