This is my first post here, happy to have found it (thanks Gregory)! The TI-99/4a was my first computer, I spent countless hours on it when I was about 14ish. It was this machine that helped me decide what I wanted to do later in life, Software Engineering. Recently, I brought all my TI stuff down from the attic and have been having a great time going through my stuff but also catching up on a lot that I've missed over the years. I've had so much fun, I decided to create a video series on the TI-99/4a, below is the first episode :
I'm working on the second episode, which will likely be much longer. Here's a list of things I'm planning in this next video (or two, depending on how long it turns out in the edit room) :
Next Episode ideas
1) Connecting the TI cassette cable to the output jack of a PC/Raspberry Pi to transfer a program to the TI.
2) Connecting the TI via an RCA Cable to an HDMI converter to display on an HD TV
3) Using a nanoPEB to load/run programs
4) Using a null modem cable between an RS-232 port/PC/RPi to transfer data between the two
5) Using the FlashRom99 to run carts
Obviously, the next video will get a bit more technical but not so much so that it will be too boring. At least, that's the plan. If you have recommendations for segments you think should be included, please post below. I hope to release Part II here in about a week or two.
Please like/subscribe if you enjoy this video. I won't be shy, I'd like to someday be able to monetize my YouTube videos such that it can help fund my addiction to technology
ps. I also have a Wagner's TechTalk page https://www.facebook.com/jwagnertech . There I have videos about building RPi arcade cabinets, a custom robot my son and I built, an LED face for Alexa (works via bluetooth), etc.
