This thread will be for puzzlers where you can post ANYTHING that has a connection

(in some way) to the TI-99/4A.  We'll see who is the first to MAKE THE CONNECTION, or not.

 

I'll start it off with the MP3 attached below.  If no one gets it within a reasonable amount of time, like a couple of days, I'll post the solution.

 

GOOD LUCK!

While you're guessing on Omega's mp3, chew on this pic.

 Hopefully before it chews on you! :o

I have to be wrong, because it appears to be calling the TI an old extinct fossil of a computer.

Bzzzt! It was in '92-94 and pretty modern for the times. Hint: it was more than one thing and a few here may have participated in one of them.

The dino picture is obviously related to gekido_ken's TI-REX game.

I'd say it represents us (the Old fossils, from the 90's) :grin:

No, No and No!  :)  One TI connection is pretty mundane, but the other revolves more on the particular dinosaur portrayed in the pic.

 

@Omega, is your mp3 made using Mike Maksimik's Midi card?

No, but many of you listened to it already in September of 2015.

No one was able to guess, so here is << THE LINK >>.

He was one of the best TI programmers, a nice guy and the developer of the XB2.7s cartridge many of you own. photo-thumb-29515.png?_r=1434671185
