If you were going to design a modern TI-99/4A computer desk...

Wed Mar 20, 2019 8:29 PM

There was a multitude of plans for homemade computer desks for the various computer systems back in the day.  Over the decades things have gotten smaller, some things on average are no longer used while other new specialty items might require a 'special location' in a modern design.


If you were going to design a custom TI-99/4A computer center, what would you include in the design?  Would you add a cork bulletin board type backing, LED strip lighting, built in power strip, a place to put manuals or speakers?  How big or small would you make it, what kind of materials would you use?  Would it be to house a full blown PEB system or a 'lean and clean' design to support TIPI.  


I bet if enough people come in with ideas, we could end up with a couple of totally awesome designs than many of us could benefit from.  Please, feel free to come in, toss around ideas, designs or even pictures.  Let's see what we can end up with!



Top 5's: To benefit new or returning users. ( FinalGROM 99 )

Wed Mar 20, 2019 7:06 AM

Those of us with FinalGROM 99's, can help out the many new and returning TI'ers that appear to be getting their FinalGROM's at nearly the same time as their consoles.  Let's face it, the FG99 gives a lot of bang for the buck, even to those who have not yet gone the memory expansion route.


So, the question to you experienced users, what are your top five games for the FG99 THAT RUN WITHOUT MEMORY MEMORY EXPANSION?

Yo! Globeron - Yer up!

Custom products suitable for TI hobby exploitation.

Sat Mar 16, 2019 7:26 PM

This thread will be for  highlighting existing products and/or services that can be put to use in our TI hobby.  So if you've found some pre-existing 'something' suitable for our TI use, post it in this thread!



I'll start it off with a cool little artistic product that comes in various sizes... as long as you have a place to put a piece of glass with a picture embedded, you might find << THIS PRODUCT >> interesting.  Now what kind of TI related image could I use...



I made an assumption and boy was I wrong!

I looked into the new "Plato Term" for the TI later than I should have.  Being busy with so many other things and making an assumption that anything Plato was for kids in an education setting, I did not give it the attention it deserved.  Boy was I wrong!  This is like a TI BBS on STEROIDS!  It has lots of fun and entertaining goodies.  So... if you have a TIPI hooked to your TI-99/4A check it out, you'll be glad you did.
