How come it's, "ALWAYS THE OTHER GUY" that finds the good deals or good stuff?  ;)

Seriously though, congratulations on the find.  :thumbsup:

#3871152 Updating your TI while keeping the aesthetics somewhat normal.

I need to say it would be wise to wait for a product to exist before buying accessories for it. Or be prepared to use a dremel.



From the height of the pins in relation to the USB connectors and the little extra smidgen of height provided by the case, it appears there should be enough clearance for Dupont type connectors, either the individual wire or ribbon variety.  If not, oh well, someone has to be the Guinea Pig, might as well be me.  :)

#3870339 Are you EMP proof?

I file this away with nuclear Armageddon... if it happens, I'm just banking on not being one of the survivors.  


Jeez you and me both.  With no operational power grid or functioning equipment, we lose communication, refrigeration, transportation, water supply & waste services.  With that comes food spoilage, loss of civil authority and a massive die off.  The disease would be rampant from the millions dying in the first days and weeks.  It'll be every man for himself and that is just the tip of the iceburg.

Tim, I'm so glad you are starting to feel better.  I guess you're like a Timex watch, you take a licking, and keep on ticking!   ;)

Anyway man, we don't want to lose you, so keep doing your 60 beats a minute!  You know, that's actually a good rate!

#3868935 PiPlay and attracting new blood.

Posted by --- Ω --- on Mon Oct 16, 2017 8:27 AM

There are a lot of RetroGamers who play on multiple emulated platforms.  When users have so many different choices to choose from, they sometimes 'check out' other systems in the menu that they never owned or used as a kid.  When this happens it could give us an opportunity to find new blood for the TI too... but only IF our system is an available option.


Not everyone sticks to emulation.  For instance, when I came back to the TI, is was largely due to Classic 99, but before I realized it, I was sucked in and 'Real Iron' was appearing piece by piece in the den.


I noticed the PiPlay has a few period systems like the Atari 2600 and Commodore 64 among others, but no TI. If we could get the TI into more of these multi-platform systems, it could help our hobby.

TI-Artist Plus+ is gonna be a bitch to do. The scan Ralf put up is the same as the one I have - muddy - especially in the middle.


Probably true, but remember we'll love you for doing it!  :) 

Since it'll be the best quality version available, it'll be the copy that survives for future generations and historians to enjoy, so be sure to sign your work!   :thumbsup:
