So despite just having the CPU and no other computer accouterments, I could still run a simple program. That's because even though I didn't have any RAM hooked up, the registers were memory enough. And the ROM in this video is just my brain, which is good enough for a short, easy program like this.

What's next?

In videos: a flyover and tour, if that's your sort of thing.

In the machine: RAM, ROM, and hooking up the PC, of course. Then it's a computer.

The save file: In a day or so, most likely. Give me some time to make sure I'm not releasing something subtly broken.

I shrunk and customized it a little, but the main design is his.
