Ah, and it came with the very characteristic MC6847 graphics chip. Remember that awful text mode? You only have two choices of colors. Text can only be dark green on a light green background or brown on a bright orange background. Bleeding eyes are guaranteed and the fixed color palettes of the graphics modes are not better.

The 6847 used to be quite common back then and even today is still relatively easy to find for building your own 8 bit computers. I have two of them in my parts box. but when the day ever comes that I will actually build a graphics card for the Zwölf, I will probably take a TMS9918 instead. Or, if I actually have to use it, I will probably 'forget' to correctly mix in the color signals and leave the video signal grayscale only.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
