Please, take this poll only if you use 'Real Iron'.

 

This is an ANONYMOUS poll, so even TI-99/4A lurkers are encouraged to vote.  ;)

 

Please take the poll even if you've not purchased anything for your TI in the last six months.

many of us probably need to sit in a circle and stand up and talk about our TI addiction!  But there is not cure and if there was I would not want it.

I only bought a TI-99/4 Advertising booklet this week--but it was from Japan, and in Japanese. Interestingly, the /4 came with the later version of the monitor there (and I have one of the Japanese monitors as well). I have to try and scan it in soon. . .

My TI habit is well in check, as I'm only negotiating for a GOTEK floppy emulator, at this time.  So it could be used elsewhere, as this is AtariAge, but I have no Atari systems any more.  The 2600 went away in the 1980's.  Isn't this fun? :-)

* new-ish TI 99/4a (black/silver) +speech syn. off ebay

* TI coffee mug (arcadeshopper.com)

* nanoPEB Case (arcadeshopper) + 3D printed version for testing
