About Me

I've been hooked on computers for the sake of computers ever since I discovered the treasure hoard of stuff my father had for the TI. That was 1984. I was 10. When I was 11, I discovered that there was an entire second TI-99/4a just sitting in the closet. This was my father's backup, in case the first one failed. I talked him into letting me set it up in my room with a cassette recorder, and a little black and white tv. 
 
Interests:

  • Arduino tinkering. And am looking for ways to learn and apply this to my TI-99/4A.
  • Video game programming on the 4A. (Although I'm really slow at this)
  • Forth (If the 8-bit era came with Forth instead of Basic, where would we be?)

Things I'd pay good money for A.K.A. WANTED:

  • I would love to have a Mechatronics Gram Karte again. Although the multicarts serve in many regards.
  • Mass storage for the PEB/Geneve (IDE, SCSI, ? )

Current Projects:

  • TI-99/4a 32k side port expansion board.

TI-99/4a

  • Rave Speech in PEB
  • Rave 99 XT Keyboard
  • PEB w/TI 32k, RS232, and Corcomp Floppies, 3.5" & 5.25"
