A PEB would be nice :-)
But i would settle for a nice book on how to program in assembly on the TI and something to save my files.

Does it have to be something that exists?  Or something that I wish existed? :)

TiPi would be nice, but I’ll take it for the 4th of July just as well!

Oh gosh, I hope it's not THAT long!  I turned over Fest West to Matt, so I'm hoping he shoots for an end of April release at Fest West 2018. (crossing fingers)  :D

TIPI won't make it in time for Christmas, but save a few bucks, it looks like it won't be long after that. I'd estimate end of January.

Sweet... this just for the sidecar version or PEB card as well?

 

If side car, it should work plugged in with a PEB too as well right?

 

I'll take 2 please!

 

I'm saving my XMAS bucks for the TIPi.......

Since I can ask for anything I want. :)  A beige speech synthesizer,  and a beige case for my nanoPEB and eventually my 32K sidecar and TIPI.  (Throw in a 99/2 and a 99/8 just for completeness)

I'd like to see a 3D printed case for the TIPI that looks like a Mini P-Box.

 

There is no law that stipulates the RPi 3 has to be horizontally oriented right?  On it's side, facing backwards would somewhat hide the ribbon cable.  Sure the case would be larger than a normal RPi case, but it would be cool! 

 

Internally inside the case I would also hide an extension cable that would convert the micro SD to a standard size SD card and have it mounted where the disk drive is normally located.

 

Of course a case like this would have to be printed in pieces and in different colors, but it would be unique!

I want the Espial cartridge for 1.000 EUR which is on ebay right now.
It is in pristine condition and packaging looks superb, but 1.000 EUR, jeez.

Is the point, the same as a comma in US dollars,? If so I understand your consternation. but if it is only a EURO, then not so much.

I may add an F18A to the list if I ever find one that I can afford.

I've never been one for tattoos on females, but that TI tattoo would be a lot better than TI joystick images on her ample 'software'.  :evil:

The German notation of one million one thousand two hundred thirty-four and one half is 1.001.234,5.

 

Also, we read 5/4 = 1,25 as "one comma two five" (some say "one comma twenty-five"), not "one point two five", and "25" are the "post-comma digits".

Germany is weird :-) (but nice)
