Many TI'ers on the TI-99/4a Yahoo groups told me that this was a more active group when I complained about a lack of answers to my many questions. I've been an active TI'er since the day that I purchased a 99'er mag subscription at the same time I bought our first TI-99/4A for Christmas 1982 along with 6 modules, so we got the TI Speech Synthesizer for free (they sent 2, by mistake?). Added a PEB with 32K , RS-232 and 300 Baud modem, so we (I) could hang out on-line when I was at home. I traveled a lot during the 80's and 90's; domestic at first then International. Last International trip was May of 1999. I've been home alone since (long story and wrong forum).
I have close to a million TI/Geneve diskettes (only a slight exaggeration, I also believe that over 90% are still functional) ranging from 90K up to 1.44MB, along with MFM hard drives, SCSI tapes/cartridges/hard drives, and TI formatted IDE drives, also CF cards for NanoPEB/IDE and a few SD cards for SCSI.
In any case I've been away up until October last year due to medical reasons. I tried to come back for a short while over a year ago, but I was doing more damage to my hardware than good, so I silently went into hibernation, but now I'm back again full of pep and vinegar, so far I've only damaged Windows PC hardware and OS software, which forced me to replace Windows 10 on my new HP laptop with openSUSE Linux (Yea, the wicked witch is dead!). This means it can serve my personal needs, and as my TI/Geneve hobby support PC/laptop.
That's it in a nutshell, and I do mean nutshell.
