It's Flippy Switch Week on RetroBattlestations! An IBM 1401 and PDP-11 have been entered, and this is my entry with an IMSAI 8080. You could win a set of 5 retro decals if you can enter a program using only toggle switches the fastest!

Full contest rules here: https://redd.it/8rjhl9

Just got a TI Silent 700 model 745 portable today. After a little bit of repair work I was able to call into bbs.retrobattlestations.com through the built-in acoustic modem and post a message!

Got this TV yesterday at a garage sale and hooked up the Apple II through the Sup R Mod and installed the Hayes Micromodem IIe to call Level 29 BBS. No lowercase but BBS still works great. Gotta love that spinning cursor in Smartcom! (FYI the hissing noise is because even on mute the TV isn't completely silent.)

My entry for #WedgeWeek on #RetroBattlestations. (Almost) every wedge computer I've got. No exact duplicates but a few are from the same series. Glad I didn't have to build a custom table! Can you identify them all? Contest info: redd.it/7tf0n2
