Hey Sparky,

 

Charles Good (Sept 2017) mentions SIX HOURS of TI related viewing to include: never released module talk such as ET, Bill Cosby commercials, retailer pep talks, and official TI Retail Training video, and LOTS of TI-99/4 (no A) footage.

 

I'd be interested in watching this now historical footage. Any ideas on its whereabouts?

 

Anyone have a link?

 

Looks like Hank Mishkoff conducted the interview. Is he still around?

I'd bet that the Lima club had them or possibly Chicago. There might be some video on the WHT as well.

Thank you! I loved the article on Spad XIII. Perhaps you will be able to publish all the articles in that series. To be honest I never gave the program a good chance in the past, finding it too primitive for enjoyment at the time as I waded deep into MS Flight simulator. I think it's time to give it another look :)

By the way, has anyone produced a label for YN disks?

since i have been working on my collection i loved the article on collecting.  i will attest that the Parker Brothers games Popeye/Frogger and Dig Dug/Ms Pac Man have eluded me to 'finish' those collections.

 

Heck, I'd just be happy for the carts.

Well... I suppose I could try to work something up for you if you don't mind waiting up to a week for it.  What did you have in mind?  Something for a 51/4" diskette or a 31/2"?

Okay Vorticon - Here is a first attempt.  If you do not like the style, or had something else in mind, please let me know.  The white area on the diskette is where you can scribble the volume & issue numbers for different disks.

And what it actually looks like on a diskette printed with cheap 20 pound stock...

... maybe I should make a 3.5" version as well?

Been fooling around with Calendar Maker 99 from Asgard. Once I found the "fix" for years 2000 and on I decided to move forward.

This November calendar was composed entirely FROM a TI-99/4A computer and printed via serial TO my PC, then converted to pdf.

 

Wasted effort? Or something you might find useful?

I think it will be useful, in fact I'll print one today to put on my desk at work. :)
