CompuKit UK101

In the late 70’s I convinced my parents to buy me a CompuKit UK101 (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compukit_UK101). The kit arrived, minus ROMs, and I put it all together, soldering the sockets, resistors, capacitors etc.

Then waited for the ROMs. Promises were made and broken, letters of complaint written and… eventually the ROMs arrived. I plugged them in, and nervously switched it on. I was greeted by the boot up page and I had my first home computer!
