When you can see inside a computer... Students following a first course in computing often experience difficulty in understanding the fundamentals of computer operation. A sound basis cannot be developed without a working knowledge of the capabilities and limitations of a stored program computer. Unfortunately it is not possible for inexperienced students to study computing with any degree of success as there is no computer that is both realistic and easy to use. TOM has been developed in order that such initial instruction can be given, involving suitable practical experience to allow students to develop their confidence and competence before their initial enthusiasm is exhausted. TOM stands for Thoroughly Obedient Moron , and consists of a number of components each designed to teach the fundamentals of computing via simple interactions.
If you’ve ever wondered how electronic devices like computers can count, this article gives a simple introduction to binary and logic and shows how they are tied together with electronics to make both simple and complex computers. Please note: There are a couple of mistakes on the slides in the youtube video which are shown corrected below. Thanks to reader [Veini] for taking the time to review the logic diagrams!

From WFFwiki Waiting for what? Welcome to WaitingForFriday.com! This is the web-home of Simon Inns . Here you will find a range of articles on my projects as well as information about my retro computing hobby. I hope you find something useful and perhaps even build some of the projects you'll see here.
Members of our forum have been working on a Raspberry Pi wiki at eLinux . You’ll find a lot of answers to questions about the board there, including some stuff we simply haven’t had space to fit in the FAQ. We’re always looking for volunteers to help keep it updated, so if you have the time, we’d really appreciate your help. There’s a page of tasks for the board that we need volunteers to address , and a page for beginners , which is a good place to start learning about the project and working out how to get to grips with the hardware. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
