Yesterday after more than a year's delay my zBC12 mainframe finally booted up. This is a machine that was donated to me in hopes to advance the hobbyist community, which I am eternally grateful for.

Finally, the zBC12 is a welcome incremental upgrade to the fleet. Hopefully it can lead to some cool things, potentially even maybe some kind of clustering between the z114 and zBC12. We will see what me and my friends cook up.
Thanks to all my friends that made this happen and a huge thanks to the anonymous donor that gave me this machine! I could not have done this alone.
