Announcing my new project: Bringing the MIT Whirlwind I to simh
Almost five years ago, my mentor and instructor in how to program passed away from cancer after a long and full life. His software writing started with the MIT Whirlwind I almost sixty years ago. As a tribute to his memory, I have decided to write an emulator for this computer and try to get it included in the simh suite. Right now, I am researching the computer and beginning to formulate my approach to the project.
Wish me luck!
