  1. I thought I remembered reading in an earlier thread that a simple file/directory copy would do the trick but wasn't entirely sure what needed to be copied. Thank you for the clarification, Beery. Reflashed the SD card to v2.28 then ran upgrade to v2.36 in TIPICFG. No problems. I'm using a Mac so I opted to just SFTP into the Pi (with FileZilla) to do the file copying. @jedimatt42 The new updates look great. I especially liked how quickly and easily v.28 updated to v.36. Thank you for all of your hard work.
  2. My current TIPI software version is fairly old (V2.5, Release Date: 2020-07-12), and I'd like to update it. I'm guessing a fresh rebuild of the SD card by flashing the latest version is the way to go? If so, what the easiest way I can back up the data currently stored on my TIPI? I know the newer TIPI versions include a backup tool, but looks like v2.5 came before that functionality was added.
  3. Received and installed today. Working beautifully. 👍👍
  4. This is a nifty card. Kudos for creating it and making it available. My 99/4a console is set up in a very tight space which doesn't allow attachment of the original speech synthesizer module. So this new card is a perfect alternative. I'm preparing to place an order and have a question: how do the "dual wipe" and "machined" socket types differ? Is one advantageous over the other?
  5. A green Christmas here in the Chicago area. It's unseasonably warm throughout the central United States at the moment. However, parts of the western U.S., especially the Pacific Northwest, I think have had some significant snow. There's some snow in Maine, too.
  6. This was great! Thanks for sharing it. Merry Christmas, everyone! 🎄🎅🎁
  7. A few years back, I was missing screws for the TI-99/4A console chassis. Took some precise measurements and found a wholesaler that carried a nearly identical replacement: Sent most of these off to arcadeshopper, so if anyone needs chassis screws, they're available at arcadeshopper.com.
  8. Sorry to miss it as I'll be at work. Hopefully I can join next month. Have fun tonight!
  9. No worries. Back in May, I set up Google Calendar events for the monthly chat. Here are the details: And Matt set up the Zoom call for every two weeks. You'll find the details here:
  10. Hi, Greg. Sorry to hear no one else was able to join. True, there are other ways to communicate, although each of those ways offers a different experience: Discord is a slick modern platform for real-time and non-real-time chatting. The Zoom-TI-99ers Pandemic 4A Club call is a fun put-a-face-to-a-name video meetup. Chatting on MYTI99.COM via the actual TI console, needless to say, offers a certain nostalgic experience similar to classic BBS chatting, and I'm sure some folks still enjoy it. The low turnout lately is unfortunate, but I don't think there's any harm in leaving it as standing event for anyone who might be available and interested. How do others feel about it?
  11. I would have liked to logon but had another commitment. Hopefully others were able to join.
  12. Likewise, I was going to join tonight around 9:30PM Eastern. These monthly chats are still on the calendar for the 9th of every month, one at 9PM Central European Time and the other at 9PM Eastern Time. But seems like interest wanes and waxes, depending on the day of the week and time of year. (Whenever I don't already have an evening commitment, I aim for the 9PM Eastern session since I'm in Chicago.)
