Magic-1 HomebrewCPU

For the first time in 7 years, Magic-1 will be be making a public appearance. You can see it, and lots of other interesting things, on August 6 and 7 at the 2016 Vintage Computer Festival at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA

This web page is being served by a completely home-built computer: Bill Buzbee's Magic-1 HomebrewCPU. Magic-1 doesn't use an off-the-shelf CPU. Instead, its custom CPU is built out of ~200 74 series TTL chips.

Magic-1 is running a new port of Minix 2.0.4, compiled with a retargeted LCC portable C compiler. The physical connection to the internet is done using a native interface based on Wiznet's w5300 TCP/IP stack.
