Took some tweaking, but finally its here - AIX 4.3/5.1 ppc running on the PinePhone + PineKeyboard and with full X11 CDE over Xephyr (had to use older Xephyr build since new one does not support /dev/input) - AIX is running in qemu-system-ppc on the PinePhone and is networked :)

What? A Rabbit 2000? I've never seen this before! It turned out to be a processor that's based on a Z80 instruction set. Nice, something new! It's paired with RTL8019 ethernet controller.

I wonder if I can swap the wifi card of this tiny PC with one of these. The current one has nonfree drivers and i cba to install them

I can't sleep so will try to do something about this - the previous owner had a big heatsink + a PC fan here, but it's too big for my classic A1200 case, so need to replace it with something smaller

The Locator Mk2 schematic is coming along nicely. Finished the 68K and 8031 CPU schematics and I/O, which just leaves the LF radio input to enter into KiCad.

While playing with modems, I realised that I have to build a more professional setup for my dial-in concentrator. I got annoyed about several modems tipping over when I'm connecting cables so I built this from various parts I had gathered over the time.

Attempting to fix up an PC/104 SBC which just stopped booting, gets wdt reset if wdt is enabled, otherwise just does nothing. I dont like that the BIOS strings are mangled...
