Raspberry Pi: Kids Build Cheap Computers. Ken writes -

When I was a kid, one of the best things to come in the mail was the newest HeathKit Catalog. In those days, kids and adults could build their own shortwave radios for almost nothing. I never had the “almost nothing” to spend, but remember spending hours reading, looking, and rereading that catalog—dreaming of the parts it would take to create my own shortwave radio set.
