  1. I have begun to wonder if the 99/4a was ever marketed towards those with low vision. You see I frequent a thrift store which is a charity for the blind. Naturally those who have received from the charity often donate later on. So they often have many items for those with low vision, such as books on tape or book magnifiers. So far I have found 2 TI 99's there and MANY carts (a lot of the learning games but also many game games). I have actually never found any TI items at any other thrift stores. This got me thinking the TI seemed to have more color contrast then most other computers of the time and obviously the voice module. This had to be why I kept finding these items at that store. I did a few searches to see if it was ever marketed this way. All I found to support my theory was this very interesting article written by a by a blind TI programmer. Thought some of you might be interested. http://www.mpnhome.net/blind/blindcomputing.htm
  2. So, I'm going to be away for a few weeks (more than a few) and away from my home-base where I can record new videos. So, in this thread I wanted to post those videos that have been created in the past couple weeks. I will be creating more, I know in the last video it appears it's the last, but it isn't, I just knew I'd be away for several weeks (i.e. 5ish due to work assignment out of town ). I have more ideas after this series that I want to develop but I won't be able to for at least a month and I have new items on order that have not arrived to review. So, it's not the end of the TI 99/4a Wagner's TechTalk videos. If you haven't seen these, I hope you take the opportunity to look around and hopefully it will be fun/helpful for you. Please comment below with any recommendations and I'll do my best to add them when I return in late April (I will have internet access, just not the ability to create new TI content as my TI will be at home and I won't be). Best to all! -Jon Part I - TI 99/4a Home Computer Introduction and History - Part I https://youtu.be/mFZgnH32Kag Part II - AWESOME TI 99/4a Upgrades - the nanoPEB - Part II https://youtu.be/hsQD0i4pZFk Part III - Preparing and Managing the nanoPEB CF Card with TI99dir - Part III https://youtu.be/cJ5v9d3LeJg Part IV - TI-99/4A Part IV - Various Upgrades: Video converters, TI99Sim, FlashRom99 and more! https://youtu.be/-0bffE-61qo
  3. Here I show the 8 classic Texas Instruments TI-99/4A games Parsec, Alpiner, Star Trek, M*A*S*H, Microsurgeon, Moon Mine, Fathom and Buck Rogers. All those games on cartridge work on unexpanded TI-99 computers, but also support the optional speech synthesizer.
  4. This is my first post here, happy to have found it (thanks Gregory)! The TI-99/4a was my first computer, I spent countless hours on it when I was about 14ish. It was this machine that helped me decide what I wanted to do later in life, Software Engineering. Recently, I brought all my TI stuff down from the attic and have been having a great time going through my stuff but also catching up on a lot that I've missed over the years. I've had so much fun, I decided to create a video series on the TI-99/4a, below is the first episode : TI 99/4a Home Computer - Part I https://youtu.be/mFZgnH32Kag I'm working on the second episode, which will likely be much longer. Here's a list of things I'm planning in this next video (or two, depending on how long it turns out in the edit room) : Next Episode ideas 1) Connecting the TI cassette cable to the output jack of a PC/Raspberry Pi to transfer a program to the TI. 2) Connecting the TI via an RCA Cable to an HDMI converter to display on an HD TV 3) Using a nanoPEB to load/run programs 4) Using a null modem cable between an RS-232 port/PC/RPi to transfer data between the two 5) Using the FlashRom99 to run carts Obviously, the next video will get a bit more technical but not so much so that it will be too boring. At least, that's the plan. If you have recommendations for segments you think should be included, please post below. I hope to release Part II here in about a week or two. Please like/subscribe if you enjoy this video. I won't be shy, I'd like to someday be able to monetize my YouTube videos such that it can help fund my addiction to technology ps. I also have a Wagner's TechTalk page https://www.facebook.com/jwagnertech . There I have videos about building RPi arcade cabinets, a custom robot my son and I built, an LED face for Alexa (works via bluetooth), etc.
  5. I was wondering how many active TI 99/4A community members still exist in 2016. I could not find a simple way of knowing so I thought of having a central dedicated blog entry which we can share with anyone who we know is a TI user and tell them to like this page. They can then comment on this blog and tell us some details about themselves. Example: Name, Surname, Age, Country, Year when they first had a TI 99/4A, How many TI 99/4A machines they have, Maybe the entire inventory of TI stuff they have (brag a little), If they use the TI to develop software or play games, if they are just collectors, if they still develop or used to develop, a small personal story related to the machine, etc.... Please do NOT like this page if you are not a TI 99/4A fan.
