The TIM Project

The TIM project is my attempt to learn the workings of a computer by building computers. So far I'm on my 9th computer, but it is unlikely to be my last. This project has been going for over two years now; ever since I finished my GCSE's. Even so, there is still a lot left to be learnt.


All my home built computers:

Relay Computers:

TIMs 1-7


Diode Transistor Logic computers:

Tiny Tim


Everything Else:

Guide to programming your homemade computer



You may be wondering why its called TIM. Basically I just like the name Tim, but the official reason is because it stands for The Intelligent Machine... or something like that.
