  1. How about some vinyl wrap? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07D1NWZNJ/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_ogvIDbF3K0MVN
  2. Throwing other ideas out there for increasing revenue: - charge a flat fee for listings in the buy / sell subforum - charge a percentage of the listing in the buy / sell subforum - free items are of course free to list - for a fee, allow a listing in the buy / sell subforum to be shown as a site advertisement I don't know what would be amenable to everyone, but these are just ideas...
  3. Buy an untested/ non-working TI off ebay that still looks good. Much easier to take the trim off an old TI.
  4. I was hoping nobody would notice, and I'd be able to get it at $100 🙂. It looks out of my price range now.
  5. Someone did this: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2458688
  6. The FinalGROM is a device that allows you to boot cartridge images from the start screen. The only way to get those images onto the FinalGROM is by using an external system (PC or Mac); the TI cannot create cartridge images. The FinalGROM is not a disk drive like device that allows you to save your BASIC programs. In general, think of the FinalGROM as a cartridge-only device.
  7. Just taking a guess, but it's likely leakage from the M100's internal battery. Pics would help. If that's the case, soak the diode in white vinegar and let sit for 5 minutes or until the bubbles stop forming. Scrub with an old toothbrush and dry with cotton buds (Q tips). Soak with 90+ percent isopropyl alcohol, and dry with cotton buds.
  8. You can find off brand batteries for less... for example I see one that's $35 for that particular UPS. Just make sure to read the reviews before buying.
  9. How about a couple of Logos? I believe I got these from the TI website, but am not 100% sure. The SVGs are the files you want, as these are vectorized and will scale to any size. The images are here just as previews. Texas_Instruments_Logo.svg texas_instruments_retro_logo.svg
  10. Did you banish @iliketurtles?
  11. I've had trouble with both. I think it comes down to statistics: some people will have WD drives fail more often, and others will have Seagate drives fail more often. I go with Seagate, because I'm comfortable with their RMA process. Have to agree with that. Those drives are what made me go to Seagate initially.
  12. There's also the fact that you'd be using the drives from the NAS in some other device, so the NAS people could say "no we don't support that config". But I suppose you could ask about it before you buy from them. There are two approaches to buying: buy for price and get little or no support, or buy for support but pay heavily for it. I tend to do the former for personal stuff, and the latter for business stuff. So yeah, I do buy from Amazon since I'm a cheap SOB.
  13. 10 TB NAS drives are $250 each so that's only $2500 if you are willing to forgo the NAS itself: WD Red: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0719498XY/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_KJ6rDbCREHGF0 Seagate Ironwolf: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07H241VK4/ref=twister_B01MG9FYNQ?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
  14. Another member here, FarmerPotato, is working on a Geneve board:
  15. Someone already did the keyboard part, no mouse though:
  16. Some tips for the "black screen with noise" issue at the following blog post: The blogpost references John Guion's guide to troubleshooting. I had posted a comment in the blogpost linking to the full text of the guide at whtech. The comment was never approved, so is invisible. I post the link here for your reference. http://ftp.whtech.com/articles/limanews/CONSOLE.TXT
  17. I've submerged boards overnight in IPA. It does much better than a "quickie" with IPA and brush, although it still leaves behind some residue. I've never used it, but there's also flux remover. The stuff is expensive though: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005DNQWV0/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_KcArDb73HHXA8
  18. My reading of the article was that USB floppies are still supported. The downside of this is that it is not possible to read the raw disk content, therefore non-standard (non pc) formats are not readable.
  19. The picture shows that you are compiling with Clang. Try GCC. Even then I don’t know if it will work. The build process works on Linux but doesn’t work on all flavors of Linux. Mac is *like* Linux, but they are not the same.
  20. Yes: C99, C99C, and GCC. The first is a native compiler, and the others are cross compilers. All support C, and I believe only GCC supports C++. See the first post in this thread for links to the respective compilers:
  21. Yes one of the members here, Fabrice Montupet, has created a new board with his TI(ny)-99/4A:
  22. @Tursi When I ran it before, it ran fine in the demo (attract) mode. I don't recall if I started a game though. I didn't have a joystick at the time, so I wasn't able to play. (I'm in the process of moving, so my TI stuff is in boxes.) Just to clarify, my TI has: Speech Synth + NanoPEB + FinalGROM. I don't have an F18A.
  23. Works on my system without an F18A. I do have the NanoPEB + FinalGROM.
