I went to 8th-9th grade in Geneva, OH around 1984-1986 and we had a lab full of TI99/4a's with tape drives. There was also a few machines with PEBs that were reserved for bigger projects.


I developed several hi-res drawings using graph paper and remapping the character graphics (things like the school mascot, an Eagle and other characters). I even later went back and added crude animation to them by remapping the bitmaps directly in "real-time" using BASIC.

Pete, my wife's family is from Ashtabula, my father-in-law still lives in Geneva.  I'm sure that stuff's long gone but it'd be fun to find a yard sale or surplus shop with all those 99/4A's in it now...
