PSA: pre83.com contains resources for pre 1983 systems dev

Just thought I'd share this. I was looking for info on odyssey 2 programming and I found this place. The nice presentation is a definite great plus. Check it out!
http://pre83.com/

From the website:
"Pre83 collects programming resources for computer platforms released before 1983. Many of these consoles, computers, and handhelds are difficult to research due to their material scarcity or technical obscurity. When information is available online, it is often tucked away in niche forums or hard-to-find websites. Unless a platform was particularly successful or beloved, popular attention fades and otherwise interesting machines languish in obscurity.

Pre-83 aims to help centralize and curate the most useful technical documentation for its target platforms, as well as offer an entry point for curious creators who might be interested in making new software on old hardware. The point of the site is not to encourage distanced, nostalgic contemplation, but to inspire active, serious research into platforms that still have something to offer for programmers, artists, scholars, and game designers."

I did a quick check and there was a few system that I knew so it's interesting to see information about them. Still, now that I see the specs of some (like 64 bytes of ram)... That feel quite constrained compared to the nes :lol:
