  1. My grandma has a box of AOL CD's because she likes to cut them into star shapes and hang them from trees in her yard.
  2. For what it’s worth, I intend to bid on this lot, and i would be happy to make any scans of issues that are needed, or images of any of the floppies. Even if I win this lot, I will STILL be missing a few issues, if I am judging correctly from the pictures. Afterwards I will turn around and re-list my duplicates, which will probably be over 100 issues. Incidentally, I still ship floppies as media rate and haven’t had an issue. The only check seems to be by the clerk at the post office, and nobody at my branch has questioned it. Computer media is still acceptable as long as the content is not advertising. I think they are just trying to prevent AOL floppies from going out cheap.
  3. I bought 2 of them a couple years ago and they are excellent quality. Honestly, for the price, I am shocked at how durable and well made they are. Thank you!
  4. That YouTube channel caught me because they look at odd Tandy's that rarely get attention. I don't really know why I keep watching because they bumble around and really don't know very much about the computers. I don't know how many times the guy has said "I don't have any experience with a computer like this." On the other hand it's hard to poopoo anybody trying to show off their collection. And I appreciate the candor with his opinions. HOWEVER, the hate for the TI was very unfair.
  5. I just learned about this Dutch computer that almost became part of the history of the TI 99/4A. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DAI_Personal_Computer http://www.progettoemma.net/mess/system.php?machine=dai
  6. You're lucky i'm about to have a baby boy or the price might have reached even higher!
  7. I've already got one, but I missed this one so I otherwise would have been very grateful to you for pointing it out. Thanks!
  8. I would love 3 unbuilt. I like that you’re naming it 4000B similar to the 3000B. Amazing that the series continues to develop. Thank you! What will you begin the serial numbering with? Do we know how many HRD 4000 boards were made?
  9. This is still on my to-do list. My intention is to convert it to hex bus on the same circuit. But i'm sure there are others out there who have already done this.
  10. I think those would fetch a few hundred dollars a piece on eBay. I would bid! I've been looking for them for many years.
  11. Do you by chance have the logic files for the Databiotics Grand RAM? I have some experience with wincupl and i'm willing to figure out how to write the new PAL chip. But i'm not advanced enough yet to work out my own reverse engineered logic.
  12. I ordered a custom built riser from Etsy. There are probably cheaper ways to do it, but this way I got precisely the color and dimensions I wanted. The result is very sturdy and the wood matches my desk nicely. I went with 24 x 13 x 4 because I wanted to place my PEB on top, and have just the right space for a stack of TI external drives next to it. The downside is it took 3 months to receive it. https://www.etsy.com/shop/jimswoodworks#about
  13. Found this in a Commodore magazine called Power Play
  14. I didnt get it, so my bet is Ksarul got it. It looks great. But Im not convinced that its actually a TI part. I wonder if its a VIC-20 expansion. It also uses 44 pins.
  15. I completely agree! I almost prefer to find stuff that doesnt work.
  16. This is great work. A real labor of love. I want one!
  17. Here' s a picture OLD CS1 posted of the speech synthesizer mod. I did a similar mod to a corcomp micro expansion and it worked just fine. http://atariage.com/forums/gallery/image/19379-5vdc-power-full-shot/
  18. I believe that would work. But like the speech synthesizer, unless you power the TIPI with its own external power, you would have to modify the CorComp to send the power across to any additional sidecars.
  19. This is a cheat, but it's a solution for any Atari compatible system, as well as the TI. https://www.retro-cloud.eu/shop/hardware-add-ons/amiga/snesctrl-nes-snes-gamepad-interface-for-atari-amiga-c64/?v=7516fd43adaa
  20. I can happily send you some single sided floppies with whatever software you'd like. I was in a similar situation to you, but wound up getting it running using a Lotharek floppy emulator.
  21. Hi guys. Tony's machine will not disappear. I'm the new owner. I appreciate the responsibility that comes along with that, and I will be glad to keep everyone posted on it's future. Unfortunately for me, I got back in to the TI scene too late to have known Tony, but he has actually helped me solve several puzzles over the past few years through his frequent posts to AtariAge. I feel very honored and blessed to be able to work with his equipment. To start with, I would like to dig in and figure out all of it's modifications and quirks. I'll also take some nice pictures and get them posted on the web somewhere for anyone who is interested. I'm particularly curious about the Dijit AVPC card with the custom modification built by Michael Becker to add a sound chip. I have not actually received the box yet, so i'll let you all know when it arrives safely. I am a little worried about needing help getting it running, so I will be glad to have the support of the community. Tony talked a lot about making custom DSR's for his system, so it will probably be tricky to diagnose problems. Incidentally, I had not actually heard of an EZ135 drive until I read InsaneMultitasker's post. I might have to get one just to play with. I found this video from 1999 with Tony showing off a couple of the cards that wound up in this system. Thank you Ciro!
  22. I had this same problem. The MG ROMs fixed it for me.
  23. I'm pretty sure the door that pops up when you push the button to open the drive is made of metal. I'm very glad to be warned off of Arcadesale695! I've had a few bad experiences with him under other names, but I didn't know about this new alias.
