i dig your Crow and Tom Servo pops.

 

Thanks! MST3K's one of my favorite shows, and Crow and Servo make perfect computing companions.

My first programming book given to me by my older brother when I was 11.

I knew I still had this, just hadn't been able to find it for the last few years. This is the only thing I have from my original TI days.

Nice M@,

 

That thing is in great shape.  Mine doesn't even have a front cover on it, so I have to show the back:

What I like about this one? The author, Seth McEvoy, also wrote the junior fiction series "Not Quite Human" about an android boy at a middle school. It was later adapted into a couple Disney TV movies.

i watched one of the flicks when i was a kid- I think Kirk Cameron was in it.  *shuffles off to IMDB*

 

Edit to add: it was Jay Underwood (Uncle Buck/The Boy Who Could Fly).  I was probably thrown off because Alan Thicke was in the movie, too, lol.

It's ALIVE!  My TI-99/4A console is setup and working after thirty years!  A big thank you to Dragonstomper for the helpful suggestions to get it working!  It is such a pleasure to introduce my son to my first computer console and to play TOD with him.  He was intrigued by the cassette.

Wow, I had to take a closer look!  For a 30+ year old computer, you've managed to keep it in pristine shape!  The cassette recorder looks new too!  :thumbsup:

Thank you Omega!  I did have it packed away with care!  Unfortunately, something happened to the VDP TMS9918A over the years and I had to replace it to get it functional.  A blessing in disguise because the thermal compound had gotten old and hardened.  It now has new arctic silver compound and is ready and willing! I am just as excited to get it running again as when I first got it.  In looking at other system pictures in this topic, I see that I am not the only one who has taken great care with their systems.  Very cool to see all of the systems including options that I have only dreamed of having!  Plus, seeing the work spaces and modifications are inspiring as well! 

 

Regards,

TWoodland

Yes, the photo is rather dark, but I decided to put a picture up of how I really have my lighting in the den, not just prettied up nice and bright for a photo.

Got it. Still waiting for all the bugs to be ironed out before ordering one.

Yes, copy files from Tipi to real floppy disk doesn‘t work. But access to tifiles on the Raspberry Pi works fine and access to wlan/Internet with tipichat is cool. Working with a mouse in TI-Artist is also very cool.

Hi wolhess,

we met in Neuss. I am sure you remember talking to Klaus from Austria. Still have to deal with loss of one of my pets when I returned home. Will soon provide updated version of Web99 and will continue to work on TIcode99.

Yes, of course, I can remember our conversation. Hope you are well. Web99 is very interesting to me, I urgently need an overview of my TI files

BTW this isn't really a bug, just that current disk managers do not support TIPI.  There is a new disk manager being developed to resolve this.

Love the mix of Retro and modern in the photo [Atari 2600 / XBoxOne / TI-99/4A].

Is that a XBoxOne-X??  Also saw your post of Forza Horizon 4 car with the custom TI plates.

took these today to post to the reddit thread about it..  this is the TI/XT bridge box, essentially a KVM allowing you to use your TI994A as a XT keyboard.. and switch video output for the monitor from your ti's composite out to the XT's CGA composite out..

When I first glanced these in the Triton catalog... I thought it was going to be a TIPI! Imagine my chagrin as I read on. :( :mad:
