Why can't you put a RXB Cartridge into the Cartridge Slot?
(You do not need a 32K to use RXB)
Why would you even want to use TI Basic and RXB can run TI Basic programs already and faster?
This strikes me like asking figure out how to make your car drive on 3 wheels when what is the point?
Is this some kind of silly challenge that has zero value?
Why would anyone use a TI99 these days? My desktop computer was in the trash when I rescued it. It is 1000 to 1,000,000 times more powerful than the TI99 and cost nothing.
Of course, everyone here has a different reason for using the TI. Nostalgia is a factor for many of us. For most of us it is the challenge of doing something useful with a computer design that is 36+ years old. This takes many forms. Some people like to extend the hardware limitations (SAMS, F18A, HRD etc.) Some, like me, take a middle ground, using only XB, a disk drive and 32K. Others like to see what can be done using the simplest system possible - a bare console and a tape drive. Since this whole hobby is a colossal waste of time anyway, what is wrong with working with such a simple system?
