I have 3 PEBs, and 2 PC cases with modified PS and PEB card cages. I also have 2 NanoPEB sidecars
(1 is V1 and 1 is V2), and 1 CF7A+. COM1 of the NanoPEB V2 does not work. It is a replacement for
the first one that failed after 20 minutes of operation, otherwise it still works well. The CF7A+
seems to be limited to 512MB or smaller CF cards. The Nano's are currently using 2GB CF cards. One
PEB needs a new PS, but in time I will just put the card cage in another PC case and modify the PS,
as the PEB is pretty banged up.
I keep the PEB units because of all my special 3rd party circuit boards; 2 Geneves (1 2MB Memex, 1
512K PFM+), and a SNUG TI-99/4P system (includes; 1MB SGCPU, 9938 EVPC, 16 Bank HSGPL, SPVMC voice
Memory,WHT SCSI, 3MB HRD-16, DSDD BWG FDC). Therefore, one of the most powerful and very best, existing
TI-99 systems in the world! Unfortunately, both Geneves and this "to die for" TI system are not in
operation due to the lack of an RGB/SCART monitor. Money will eventually resolve this issue. None of
these systems are for sale, so don't ask.
I have 3 WHT SCSI cards for these 3 systems; 1 HFDC, had 2 IDE cards I built myself (SMT, not possible
for me any more, both were sent out for repair a few years ago--never came back), 2 old WDS-100 systems
in mothballs for the time being (no place to set them up). I also have 5/6 1GB SCSI hard drives, lots
of EZ135MB & EZflyer230MB SCSI carts for 1 EZ135MB drive and 2 EZflyer 230MB drives, several 45MB & 20MB
MFM drives for HFDC & WDS-100 systems. Other stuff like P-GRAM+ 80K GramKracker, EA SC, etc., etc..
I guess we can say I'm a TI/Geneve hobby fanatic of way out there proportions.
