-I set out to do this project with the intention of repairing the Macintosh SE. I also wanted to put my hardware skills to a practical test and holistically improve my knowledge of electronics. +I set out to do this project with the intention of repairing the Macintosh SE.

-These particular research efforts have been made possible by RetroTech at the Georgia Tech Library - an organization committed to preserving old technology. +
-===== My Setup ===== +
-I currently write my software on a Mac Mini and Macbook (when I'm not near the Mac Mini)+
  
-have various electronic devices such as  an FPGA (of course!), ​mini UART cable (technically not FTDI it's prolific tech.) some resistorsa soldering Iron, and some wires.+originally started reverse engineering hardware ​as an intern at Georgia Tech RetroTech Laboratories. When my internship ended - about year passed before I had another chance to do any serious retro-reverse engineeringFortunately - over the course of that year - I acquired much more knowledge in the area of computingmathematics,​ controls, signal processing, and 3d computer graphics. I should now be more equipped than ever to perform ​some amazing feats with old hardware.
  
-{{:​wiki:​my_workstation.jpg?400|}}+A youth pastor at my church gave me his MacSE recently and it works perfectlySince there is nothing to fix, I plan to write some software for it as well as design an accelerator for its PDS(Processor Direct Slot)
