  1. I seem to remember restoring the ladder logic for a customer that had a 5TI system a few years ago from my -3104 VPU. At least I remember the customer had their logic stored on one of those obscure format disks that I've never been able to find. Typically I had to restore the logic to the 5TI sequencer from hard copy with a handheld programmer that looks like a early 70's calculator. Edit: We had two VPU's and I might have used the other which has (I think) a standard double density floppy drive (and requires a operating system disk).
  2. Starcade at Disneyland had many "older" games that I've never seen anywhere else. Most of them were still there (on the upper level where the queue for Space Mountain used to be adjacent) until at least 1992 or 1993. I remember Steeplechase, Drag Race, Shark Jaws, Stunt Cycle, and a cockpit Star Fire off the top of my head.
  3. It's for programming the 5TI series of PLC's/sequencers. Shockingly, many companies still use 5TI systems to run assembly lines and machinery today. Apparently, I'm one of the few people in this country that still has the equipment and knowledge to work on these things.
  4. I have two that I use currently: Tandy 1000EX: 8088 @ 4.77MHz, 640K RAM, Tandy graphics, 1 serial/1 parallel port (w/PLUS to ISA adapter), built in 360K 5.25" floppy drive, external 720K 3.5" floppy drive, XT-IDE w/32MB compact flash (w/PLUS to ISA adapter), Tandy CM-5 monitor, MS-DOS 3.2 Pentium-75 in generic, beige desktop case: 40MB RAM, generic Trident 4MB PCI VGA graphics, 2 serial/1 parallel port, 3Com 10MBPS ISA adapter, Sound Blaster 16 ISA, 800MB Quantum IDE hard drive, Toshiba IDE CD-ROM, 5.25" 1.2MB + 3.5" 1.44MB floppy drives, Viewsonic 17" VGA CRT monitor, Windows 95
  5. If you're ever willing to break up the lot, I'd be interested in the II+ and all of the floppy drives. I'm local to you and in Riverside/Moreno Valley twice a week.
  6. I had one of these I received as a birthday present when I was 12. It was stolen by a friends older brother a few months later and I never saw it again. I was thinking about this the other day when I was playing Hunt the Wumpus on my TI-99/4A and remembered how similar the gameplay was to the D&D handheld.
  7. Hunt the Wumpus, TI Invaders, and Car Wars for the TI-99/4A Pirate Cove and Radar Rat Race for the VIC-20
  8. Depends on which room I'm in. Currently either a 25" Sony WEGA Trinitron with a composite/S-video modded Sears light sixer or a 13" Sylvania with RF on an Atari heavy sixer.
  9. It looks like a TNC connector (but I can't tell if it's threaded or not). If it is, a F to TNC adapter should work.
