@yogthos on the one hand I'm pretty sure if civilization collapses, getting a basic computer to work with spare parts would be the last of your worries.
On the other hand this project is far too much fun for me to dismiss for rational reasons.
@grainloom @bamfic @polychrome I agree, even basic computing provides huge benefits in terms of organization and planning. Computers can also provide a knowledge base. For example, there are offline Wikipedia backups, and they're only 79 gigs or so. Having access to all that information would be a huge benefit.
