I am more of a Commodore guy but I have an interest in all old systems and the TI-99/4 is one I am currently trying to get back into (sold off a collection I had for some cash for another project, but now feeling the itch again).
But as a Commodore guy I keep a close watch on current projects out there in the scene and by far the most exciting is this: the Mega65, a latter-day attempt to create, essentially, the infamous never-produced Commodore 65 prototype machine for production. Details here: www.mega65.net
It honestly looks like it is coming together, slowly but surely, and amazingly.
It made me think what other unproduced machines might be take np by their corresponding communities. The TI community is so strong, I naturally thought of the TI-99/8.
Has there been any thought anywhere for folks to work on this?
About a year and a half ago I had to sell off my TI-99/4A collection to fund another project. At the time I had a TI-99/4A with an original box, the PEB with disk drive (and a few other cards I never got around to testing/using), and several carts.
Well, I'd like to get back into it. If anyone has such things to sell, PM me.
You guys are the friendliest vintage computing community by the way, by far.
