Where has time gone?

10 years ago I made this kids level project for the AMIGA:-

It was a real time AC/DC coupled Oscilloscope for the Classic AMIGA...

The cost to build it worked out to about 75 UKP in those days...

Just bought this today, 15-10-2011 for 80 UKP from MAPLIN...

in the last 10 years...

I was curious to see what was in the downloads section, but the page came up blank for me :?

Somewhere I saw that to get all the functions of an iPhone back in 1983, you would have needed an entire truckload of electronics - not the smallest item being a Cray supercomputer.

Your Android phone has at least 500.000x more computing power then the entire Apollo space program (that brought mankind to the moon and back) had at its disposal.
