“1803” is my new 1802-based b’jou. (web journal — pronounced bee-zhoo; as in a Bijou (cinema theater), as well as the definition of: a jewel, or something small, delicate, and exquisitely wrought)

I will be posting my 1802-based and other CRAV Computing research findings and other information here where I can control its publication, content, dissemination, and lifespan. This coincides with the further expansion and info- and data-populating of my website content.

1803 is a companion to my (William Donnelly’s) 1802-related hobbyist website at MDCCCII.

I am a CRAV Computing (Classic / Retro / Antique / Vintage) hobbyist, enthusiast, and collector, located in Northern California (“West Coast”) USA, and am a self-styled lay-researcher, historical archivist and information preservationist as it pertains to CRAV Computing, particularly focusing on the RCA COSMAC CDP1802 microprocessor. (anything and everything 1802)

My current, personal virtual archive (known as The Archive) is in excess of approximately 60 GB, uncompressed. (containing images, HTML web page snapshots, PDF and other documents, relevant historical information, etc.)

This b’jou will deal primarily with the RCA CDP1802 COSMAC microprocessor, but will also occasionally contain some general CRAV Computing information, as well.
