I receiver my kit yesterday and assembled most of it after work and finished up today. Played with it a little booted up CP/M seems to work great. I have wanted a blinking lights machine ever since I saw the operator panels on some 360 systems many years ago.

The PiDP-11 looks interesting even though I have no experience with DEC systems at all.

I also ran across a thing called "multicomp" which is basically recreating vintage micros using a FPGA with the VHDL source which could be a good VHDL learning experience.
