Funny you should say that. Last night I ran into a guy who had a Radio Shack TRS-80 long ago. Afterwards, I recalled making a small electronic add-on for him that saved his programs to a cassette recorder, I think. I just recall burning a small eprom by jumpering wires, no switches or buttons. I remember soldering a hundred or more wires. I remember looking at the schematics to figure where to add this thing into the computer. I remember doing this in my spare time.

What I don't know is how the heck I found the time and energy to do it.
