I love this computer, includes notes at bit-tech.net on how it was fabricated.

I suppose the wrong question is 'why?' ... fun project though. Seems to have required a huge amount of dedication.

Wonder how he managed to persuade all those manufacturers to provide freebies? What do they get out of it?

In the US, our Supreme Court just passed a ruling that allows the police to break down your doors unannounced. With this computer, I could always pick it up as they broke through and scream, "Stand back, or I'll blow up the who city block, you fools!"

If this is what I'm thinking of, the ruling was that law enforcement doesn't have to knock when serving a warrent.
