I live in Germany, in the small town Bruchköbel about 30km east of Frankfurt am Main. I bought my TI-99 / 4a in 1981 and used it until 1985. Since then, the computer was well packed in the basement shelf. At the beginning of December 2017 I rediscovered the case with the TI99 and installed it on my desk. Many of my XB programs on tape are still running today. But unfortunately I have completely forgotten the programming and start almost from zero.
This forum is great for beginners like me to get back in the game!
My systems consists: 4 x TI-99 / 4a PAL version, 1 x TI-99/4a NTSC version 1 x PEB with a SSSD floppy disk drive, 32MB extension, Sony 15" TV, 2 x FinalGROM 99, some cassettes and some 5,25" disks, TI Extended Basic, E/A, TI-Writer, Disk Manager 2, Minimemory, Editor/Assembler, TI-Writer, XB2.7 suite, Statistics German, Personal Record Keeping, Individual Accounting, Terminal Emulator II, Gazoo's Extendet Basic Fun, about 22 game cartridges, Speech Synthesizer, nanoPEB, serial connection to my Windows-PC, classic99
My projects in 2018 were to change the fan in my PEB and using a tipipeb card.
Then work with XBASIC/RXB to learn BASIC programming and first steps in AL programming.
My projects for 2019 are to finish my old program for "collection and evaluation of car costs" from cassette to disk operation and port it from XBASIC to TI-Assembler.
Getting a SAMS card for my PEB and work with it.
Maybe it is possible to get a F18A- or MK2-extension for one or two of my TI systems.
In addition, I just have fun with my old TI99.
