9.2 on the TIPI seems a LOT faster!

A TIPI-compatible version of my Internet Browser is now available - go here [http://www.stuartcon...et_web_browser] and scroll down to the "TIPI Version" heading for specific instructions.

 

It is considerably faster to download pages than the serial port version, and also supports the TIPI mouse.

This is AWESOME Stuart, I tried it out last night and am really impressed!  I'm seriously considering making a TI-only section on my http://wagnerstechta...retro-computing site just for your browser.  Of course, it may take me a little while to develop but should be fun to give it a go.

OK, had to play during lunch :)  A simple page was created at wagnerstechtalk.com/ti99/z.htm .  I'll add some actual content this weekend.  Too cool!

Just curious if there is a way to test the TI-rendering of a web page in Stuart's Bowser using Classic99?  I tried to run it last night in Clasic99 but it stated TIPI not found and stopped, not sure if there is another way of running it or emulating the TIPI.  I'm looking at this for a way to test the rendering between the web page+browser without having to walk between the PC & the TI (not enough desk space in one location for both).

If you're happy editing the web page on the TI, what I think might work is to put the content of your page in the FAVS file in the TIPI BROWSER directory. You should be able to edit this file using the E/A Editor. Then load the browser then load the FAVS file by pressing "I" - the FAVS file is just a 'local' web page. Then back to the E/A Editor and make some more edits, and so on. When your page is complete, go back to your PC and you should be able to download the FAVS file in the TIPI web interface and get the text back out of it.

 

Haven't tried this, but I think it might work ...

Thank you Stuart, I'll give this a try!  I did wind up clearing some temporary desk space to give this a try :)  Not much content yet, but adding to it:  http://wagnerstechtalk.com/ti99/z.htm

If you don't want to manually log in to MYTI99.COM manually all the time, edit the URL in your FAVS file to something like this...

 

/?a=li&u=Username&p=PinNumber

Hopefully this won't be necessary much longer :) It kind of sucks to have to use the querystring to maintain state, not to mention divulging your username/pin in all your screen shots.
