Hello world!

Hi everyone. Welcome to thedigitalgroup.org. This site will be dedicated to preserving information about the computers produced by the digital group from 1975-1979. I will do my best to provide information, links, and original documentation for the machines, as well as some exciting modern developments.

My first announcement is a cross-platform dg emulator, which emulates a Z80 based dg system with cassette storage. I will be posting Mac, Linux, and Windows executables soon, as well as source code as soon as it is cleaned up a bit. Thanks for reading and hope you will visit again soon.

    Hello All,

    I have had DG computers since the start. I have not used them in a long time. I had an 8080 system and later got the Z-80A board with a big metal case and 8″ floppies.

    In 1977 or 78 I helped a local accountant get a DG system up and running and wrote BASIC programs for his apps. He used the system til he died a few years later. Don’t know what happened to the computer. It did his job for him tho.
    Using today’s computers makes you wonder how 8 bits and 32k ram could do all we needed back then. Maybe we don’t need all the overhead we have now.

    I’ve still got two systems. One is my original and one I picked up at a hamfest some years ago.

    I remember going to a DG meeting at Dayton hamfest in the 70′s and meeting the group from Colorado. To bad it ended so soon.

    Bob
