  1. This is a work in progress.. will be happy to add anything missing - Greg A few bits of information, rules and guidelines on posting. Short links to our sub-forums: TI-99/4A Computers http://ti99.atariage.com TI-99/4A Development http://dev99.atariage.com Please read the AtariAge site guidelines which apply to and are enforced in our subs. Our sub-forums are divided to help cater to the varied interests in our beloved platform. The parent sub-forum, TI-99/4A Computers, contains general information and conversation regarding the TI-99/4A and its siblings, such as the 99/2, 99/8, CC-40, and BASICALCS. The sub-forum TI-99/4A Development is for conversations, information, announcements, etc. pertaining to programming, tinkering, or the development of software or hardware for these computers. This division is not intended to be a separation of the community but rather a way for those who have little interest in development but moreso in general discussions to focus their time on the fun-zone, while those who take more interest in the deep-down nitty-gritty and not so much general shenanigans to focus their attention just the same. The rest of us can spend all the time we want and will peruse both subs with reckless abandon. Insofar as development is concerned, once hardware or software has been completed or is at least ready for general consumption, an announcement should be made in the general TI-99/4A Computers forum for all to partake. Further development and inquiries should still be continued within the TI-99/4A Development sub-forum. The forum leader will move threads to a more appropriate forum. This may also be done by request should a thread be started in the wrong forum by accident or the trajectory changes from general to development or vice-versa. The forum leader will also merge identical threads started in both forums into a single thread in the proper forum. Per AtariAge guidelines, please refrain from posting identical threads in both sub-forums as way to ensure the topic gets viewed. Many people already browse both subs, and if your topic pertains more to development rather than general, or vice-versa, the thread should exist in the appropriate forum. As well, multiple threads created on the same topic in the same forum will be merged. Regular members can edit a post for 60 minutes after submission. This allows you to fix any issues you may notice with the post right away. Subscribers can edit posts for 30 days. In the Marketplace and Programming forums you can edit your posts indefinitely, since the flexibility of allowing editing of posts outweighs the potential abuse of the edit functionality. If you make a duplicate post in a thread, which can happen by accident or some unforeseen technical glitch, report the post by clicking on the "report" link at the bottom of the post and indicate in the report that the post is a duplicate. If you are not a subscriber, please help support AtariAge by using the eBay BBCodes ebay, ebayseller, and ebaystore when posting links to eBay! Click here for more information. Anything you would like to share with your fellow 99ers but is seriously off-topic for the forum may be posted in the official off-topic thread, located here To find the most popular threads click on sort by and select most popular. All of us are ready and willing to provide answers to your TI-99 questions if we can, some will just chime in if they cannot, and others will just lurk. If you have any questions specifically pertaining to the operation of our forums, please feel free inquire of the forum leader via Private Message (PM,) or one of the global moderators. BEFORE POSTING QUESTIONS PLEASE READ THE UPDATED TI-99/4A FAQ HERE: https://www.arcadeshopper.com/wp/ti-99-4a-faq/

(Author: @retroclouds) BASIC - Software Power BASIC TI-99/4A This is a port of the 'Power BASIC' interpreter used with the TMS9995-based Powertran Cortex machine. It is written in pure assembly. Graphic commands, sprites and saving to disk are supported. Currently no sound and speech supported. Power BASIC instruction manual available. Playground TI-99/4A Playground is a package making it possible to create assembly language programs that run from TI BASIC on an unexpanded console using only a cassette player to load the program(!) Although primarily intended for use in TI BASIC, programs written for playground can be run from XB, saved in E/A 5 format, loaded into a supercart, and even made into an actual cartridge. The manual describes in detail the differences in style necessary when programming for an environment that runs in only 256 bytes of memory. There is a library of subroutines for printing text, printing a number, shifting blocks in VDP, generating random numbers, using the line editor from BASIC, HCHAR, VCHAR,GPLLNK, a bit reversal routine, and a fast scroll routine. Source code is included for three different programs that should help you get started. Check here for the development thread on Atariage. Check this related thread for some clever work based on Playground. (Author: @senior_falcon) Extended BASIC - Software Extended Basic Game Developers Package "ISABELLA" TI-99/4A This package has been extensively updated to be faster, more versatile, and much simpler to use. It consists of two applications that make it possible to produce arcade quality games with XB. Although they are designed to complement each other, each is a stand alone utility. This is meant to be used with the Classic99 emulator, but the resulting programs are fully compatible with a real TI99 with nothing more than XB, 32K and a disk drive. Note that the included XBGDP package has an option to use the older TI BASIC only runtime routines if desired. It replaces for the older "Harry Wilhelm's BASIC COMPILER" and as a bonus, it's much easier and faster to use. (Author: @senior_falcon) 1) XB256 XB256 lets you toggle between two independent screens as desired. Screen2 lets you define all 256 characters and have up to 28 double sized sprites using the character definitions available to Screen1. Scrolling routines let you scroll characters left, right, up, or down or scroll using single pixels. There is a text crawl that gives an effect similar to the STAR WARS title screen. You can highlight text, set the sprite early clock, print in any direction on the screen using 32 columns, read/write to VDP ram, write compressed strings or sound tables to VDP ram, play a sound list, and catalog a disk. A utility lets you save selected areas of VDP memory as compressed strings that cn be merged with your program. With this, character definitions, sound tables, screen images, etc. can be saved in a more compact form that can be loaded virtually instantaneously, even in XB There are two utilities that convert the CALL SOUNDs in an XB program into a sound table containing music and sound effects. Sound tables can be loaded directly into VDP memory and played automatically while your XB program does other things. Also, a second player can play a different sound list simultaneously with the first, so you can have backgroundmusic playing and add sound effects on top of the background music. 2) XB COMPILER COMPILER lets you compile an XB program into an equivalent assembly language program that will run about 30 times faster. All the XB256 subprograms are supported by the compiler and in general, all the major features of XB are supported, including XB style IF/THEN/ELSE and named subprograms. About the only XB features that are not supported are DEF and the trig functions. T80XB TI-99/4A T80XB is a collection of assembly language subroutines that give the Extended BASIC programmer easy access to the 80 column screen mode offered by the F18A and other 80 column upgrades. Lets you select from two independent screens. G32 is the default screen when a program starts running.. This is the 32 column graphics mode screen normally used by Extended BASIC. It is accessed using the usual XB graphics statements. T80 is the 80 column text screen which offers 24 rows of 80 columns.. You can toggle between the two screens as desired, preserving the graphics on each screen. When using the T80 screen there are assembly equivalents that replace PRINT, CLEAR, COLOR, INPUT, CHAR, HCHAR, VCHAR plus routines that will scroll the screen and invert text on the screen. (Author: @senior_falcon) RXB 2020E TI-99/4A Rich Extended Basic (RXB) 2020E is an updated version of TI Extended Basic. Most bugs in XB have been fixed in RXB and GKXB is in the main core of RXB. RXB has features no other XB has such as batch processing, SAMS support, hard drive access or updated CALL routines. The below RXB tutorials on Youtube give a good overview of RXB's power: RXB DEMO 1 video RXB DEMO 2 video RXB DEMO 3 video RXB DEMO 4 video RXB DEMO 5 video RXB DEMO 6 video RXB DEMO 7 video RXB DEMO 8 video RXB DEMO 9 video RXB DEMO A video RXB DEMO B video RXB DEMO C video RXB 2020 Release video on features video RXB memory manager routines in RXB 2020 video Full documentation, examples and GPL source code are all included in the ZIP package.

(Author: @moulinaie) The Missing Link 2.0 (TML) TI-99/4A The zip archive contains "The Missing Link 2.0" and its documentation. This was published by Texaments in 1990. It gives the XB programmer easy access to the bit mapped features of the 9918 VDP. Full color cartesian graphics, turtle graphics, sprite graphics (32 sprites with auto motion) are supported. Text can be displayed on screen with fonts having sizes ranging from 4x6 pixels to 8x8 pixels. The manual is updated with many previously undocumented features. A tutorial called "Potatohead" is included. There is a loader that embeds A/L programs in high memory - they can be saved as an XB program and run directly out of high memory.

Kaal) GNU C Compiler (GCC) win + linux + osx GCC for the TMS9900 allows you to cross-compile C programs on your PC (Linux, OSX or Windows) for the TI. Insomnia's release contains a set of patches against GCC 4.4. Just check out the code from the GCC project, apply the patches and build according to the build instructions for your platform and you're on your way to write programs and games for the TI in a high level language that rival the speed of assembly. And if you need just that little bit extra in terms of speed, you can always inline TMS9900 assembly for the critical sections of your code and compile everything with the same toolchain. For access to the VDP, the SN76489, etc... you can use Tursi's ti99 library, which you can find in the GCC thread. Hop over to the INSOMNIA LABS blog for background information on this port. Check the "Setting up the GCC compiler for the TI-99/4A" video by @Tursi for detailed steps on how to build and install GCC on your Windows PC. You can now download the cygwin binary port of the older TI GCC 1.10 for Windows here. (Thanks @lucien2).

  4. This is the first GA release of Stevie, a new 80 columns programming editor for the TI-99/4a. Some of you may have been following the Stevie development thread. For those that haven't, here are some key facts: 32 kilobytes cartridge rom Written in TMS9900 assembly language Requires F18A VDP Requires 1MB SAMS memory card Only uses level 3 file I/O for better compatibility with the various storage devices out there (tested with HRD4000B ram disk, TIPI, IDE DSR card and TI disk controller) Some of the main features: It's fast 80 columns, 30 rows mode Edit up to 10.200 lines of text with maximum length of 80 characters each. That should be a first on the TI-99-4a. 10 color schemes "Hardware" cursor (uses sprite as cursor (that is something currently only possible on the F18A VDP) "Fastmode" option. Possibility to bypass VDP memory when loading files from a device with a supported DSR (ROS, IDE, ...) Help built-in (at least for the keyboard shortcuts) Indicator for alpha lock up/down There have been 2 public betas and Vorticon has been helping me with testing the alpha releases. So I think that for a first GA release it is quite stable. Nonetheless, please make sure you always have backups of the files you edit with Stevie. Sorry, there's no search and replace option in this release. If you want to try out Stevie, but do not have an F18A equipped TI-99/4A or a SAMS 1MB expansion card, you can give it a spin in the js99er emulator (Classic99 and MAME are currently unsupported) Big thanks to vorticon for helping me with testing the alpha releases. His feedback was very valuable and it is very much appreciated. Still have a lot of ideas with things I want to accomplish, but this will have to do for now. I've been working for almost 3 years programming Stevie, and it is now time to take a break and move on to new things. That being said, I will look into bug fixes. Please report bugs to the Stevie development thread with a description of what happened and a screenshot if possible. Have fun! retroclouds 2021-02-06 Stevie v1.0 stevie.bin

  6. Here we have an extremely hard to find cartridge variant of Star Trek for the TI-99/4A. This cartridge is only the second confirmed cart with this label type. There is no date listed on the back, but the working theory is that Triton Products distributed this cartridge type in the 1984-85 timeframe. Triton Products had the rights to manufacture TI cartridges using leftover parts received from TI when they purchased the distribution rights for all remaining TI hardware and software stock. It looks like this run of cartridges was complete with the exception of the labels, so they made the black text on white background label. It is listed on 99er.net as UR for "Unbelievably Rare - A cartridge thought to never have existed, but has been found and proven it does exist." Please send me a PM if you're interested or would like some additional pictures, and we can also discuss pricing. Thanks!
  7. NOTE: FinalGROM only files are listed near the bottom of this entry. FlashROM 99 Compatible Files Last update: 02/13/2021 STARTER PACKS There is a link to a rather large starter collection of files OFF-SITE at WHTECH, the files were compiled by the creator of the FlashROM99 . For these files, please << CLICK HERE >>, it's easy to overlook. If you are running a TI without a 32K memory upgrade in one it's various forms, you'll probably want to download the nice 'Starter Pack' compiled by Atari Age user 00WRex. It's available << in message #12 of this thread >>. There are lots of files for the FlashROM 99, and it's very easy to lose track of all the programs! If there is something you've not been able to find (like a Rasmus game) be sure to check the starter packs! There is also package for the FinalGROM 99 for that link, << CLICK HERE >>.

  8. I don't know if this is something that the world needs, or if it is even going to work, but I just finished the schematics and PCB design for my own take on the "mini/nano/whatever/quark" version of PEB. Since it's my version, I decided to call it simply Erik's Tiny PEB, as this is supposed to be small(ish). I attach the schematics and current PCB layout. The schematics and the board are a bit of a mess, since the design is based on my existing and working "SD processor board", I just added a few things. I didn't want to layout everything again, so at places the board is dense and I haven't cleaned up the schematics. Since the design is partially based on my existing work, theoretically this should work. The additions are: 512K SRAM 4MB SPI FLASH TI-99/4A side port connector (created an Eagle symbol for it, hopefully that went ok) Once I've verified the PCB and schematic design I'm going to send this off to China for PCB production. This should enable me to build a working prototype (hopefully). The board is supposed to enable the following once it works (the way I imagine it - there are programmable components here and I don't know how much stuff will fit in, and it is hard to test without a prototype): SD card storage support, with support for FAT, FAT32, SD and SDHC cards 256K of paged RAM memory (and of course the standard 32K as a subset). I'm not sure if the standard paging will fit into the CPLD, but I think it will as I am not planning to store the page entries on the CPLD, but actually on external SRAM. 256K of additional RAM which needs to provide support for DSR routines, potentially also for ROM cartridges and maybe even GROM. ARM coprocessor for SD card support and other stuff. The CPLD is supposed to provide a simple transparent DMA engine, allowing the ARM to inject stuff from SD card to the TI-99/4A's memory expansion, on the fly. I have something like this working on my FPGA system, although that is a much more complex setup than can be done with these parts. USB device interface (virtual serial port, running at 12 Mbps or something like that - this piece already works) Serial port (3.3V level) I2C port The design is a weird derivative of my current FPGA system. I have connected my previous SD processor board to my FPGA TI-99/4A clone and it already allows me to load ROMs and GROMs from SD cards, my plan is to take that to the point that it would support TI's file system via a DSR. I have already a fair amount of firmware and other bits scattered in my various TI-related projects, so this is one attempt to hopefully gather some of those into a meaningful setup. That, and the fact that I don't have a 32K memory expansion for my real TI-99/4A, so I wanted to get one and this seems to be what came out... Erik sd_proc3.pdf ET-PEB-Schematics.pdf
  9. I recently designed a replacement for the power switch for the TI-99/4A. And thought I would give it to the community. I have hosted it on Thingiverse here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3697972 But I have also attached a photo. It's not perfect, but good enough compared to jamming something in the hole to turn on/off the computer.

  11. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic the Chicago TI User Group has decided that the Chicago TI International World Faire will be held online this year, rather than in person. Accordingly, we are now soliciting presentations in video form, to be presented at the virtual Faire. At this time we would like to ascertain what interest this is in the TI community. Anyone who has the desire to produce a video on a TI topic should send a private message to [email protected] in the next few days indicating the nature of the presentation, and we will get in touch with you with the details we require. Thanks in advance. -The Faire Committee [email protected]
  12. Mean Time Before Failure - It's starting to look like this is beginning to effect more and more P-Box power supplies. Preemptive Maintenance - Fixing the situation before it destroys something else more expensive with it's failure or, puts one out of service. Plug & Play - Designed so even the least technical people in the consumer market will feel comfortable installing it, ensuring more sales. Limited Targeted Market - Niche markets, usually have test markets or single runs of a moderate size to keep costs down. I'm thinking it may be time for "someone out there" to consider a viable Plug & Play replacement for the P-Box power supply. 1 - Could the cost be reasonable? (How much are you willing to spend for an easy replacement to protect your equipment) 2 - Could it be a direct replacement, not requiring any other modifications from the customer. 3 - Could there be "an extra" on the board as a further inducement to purchase? (Example: USB power port)
  13. Looking to unload my duplicate TI-99/4A cartridges. Most are cartridge-only but I have a good number of manuals, too, and also have four box + tray sets and two additional boxes (without trays), so we can put together complete in box (CIB) sets of your choosing, based on supply of manuals and such, just let me know what you're looking for. Also have some manuals without their corresponding carts that I'd be happy to sell, including manuals for Buck Rogers, Defender, and Zero Zap (modern style), among others. Note that Atarisoft carts are listed separately below the "first party" TI cart list. A-MAZE-ING (beige cart, red label) A-MAZE-ING (black cart, black label) The Attack (black cart, black label) Blackjack and Poker (black cart, black label) Blasto (black cart, red label) Blasto (black cart, black label) x 2 Car Wars (black cart, black label) x 3 Chisholm Trail (black cart, black label) x 2 Congo Bongo (beige cart, red label) Home Financial Decisions (black cart, black label) Home Financial Decisions (black cart, purple label) Jawbreaker II (beige cart, red label) Microsurgeon (beige cart, red label) Moonsweeper (beige cart, red label) Munchman (black cart, red label) x 2 Parsec (black cart, purple label) x 2 Popeye (missing label) Speech Editor (black cart, black label) TI Invaders (black cart, red label) TI Invaders (black cart, black label) Tombstone City (black cart, black label) Video Chess (black cart, black label) x 2 Dig Dug Donkey Kong Pac-Man Picnic Paranoia Shamus I would be happy to provide pictures and prices via PM. The more cartridges you buy, the greater the discount. Guaranteed to be lower than eBay. Also don't hesitate to reach out with interest in manuals, as I mentioned I have several. Thanks!
  14. Hi, I am trying to fetch *all* dates of former meetings, to sort the pics I´ve gathered together. If you know about more dates, please let me know, so I can create empty folders, as a first step. And maybe just have some place here, to post old pictures... or send them to me via PM, and if not wanted to publish here, or if HiRes, just send them to [email protected] thx PS: Here are the dates I know about, and wether they were INTernational,REGional, or whatever. Pls see the foldernames. "empty" means, I know the date, but have no pics.
  15. Here's a little device I bought on ebay. Got it out of curiosity really. Costed me 40 EUR including shipping in Germany. It's a centronics interface that plugs into the sideport. Basically what interested me most is what DSR is included. Appears to have costed 299 german mark back then. That is according to the "Kaufhof" label that is still on the original box. Probably boils down to 300 EUR nowadays. I scanned the device using my own DSR scan program, but nothing shows up. So either the device is broken or it needs power from an external source (the centronics interface?) Anyone else seen such a device before? At least it's new to me. Centronics would be matrix printer style right?
  16. . Hi Folks, we have a date in Germany Pls find more infos on www.errorfree.de thx .
  17. Looking for the original cartridge and manual of Munch Man II for TI-99/4A. If someone is willing to sell a spare or their own copy that they're tired of, please shoot me a PM. Thanks! Just got this cart + manual in a lot, so no need for this anymore. Woo!
  18. UPDATE: found the bug in the 99/2. erase the ti99_232.ini in the INI directory fixes the issue with it starting in partial emulation mode. Here is some of the software from the CD1 of the 2 CDs I gave out at the TI99 fest in Austin. I removed the documentation so the file would go over the max file size. also Oeegui will be posted in another post. for those who weren't able to attend the Austin TI99 fest I handed out a 2 CD pack to as many as I had. It contained a disk of lots and lots of TI documentation (disk2) and a disk of all the versions of MAME for the TI (Ti99/4, TI99/2, TI99/8, Geneve, Tomy tutor and more) files to get MAME running with those systems. disk1.zip
  19. I recently found a TI-99/4A, and since I don't want to buy the program recorder, I am looking for a way to connect any old cassette recorder/player to the TI-99/4A. Is there any way I can do this? Thanks in advance!
  20. Converted my Atari 800 game Uno card to TI-99. I used the KXBII extensions to create multi-color text. (see earlier blog post for Uno for Atari 800 and KXBII extensions for TI-99/4a). Plays at TI-99 XB speeds, which is to say, fast enough. The multi-color text is part of the KXBII extension package. Works rather well & fast enough and bug free. Only weird glitch is 1/2 character random flicker in one letter (you'll see it) when text being printed. I created a CALL PR(X,Y,TEXT$,fore-color, back-color) SUB-routine for printing to simplify conversion from Atari 800 MSBASIC. attached is a booklet and the .DSK bootable disk game. Enjoy. uno.zip

    A picture of my TI-99/4a in June 2015
  22. I don't know how much cross-over there is in this TI-99/4a sub-group with the Atari 8-bit home computer sub-forum, but I presume since this forum is hosted in the AtariAge forums that there must be at least a few people who collect for both computers. Right now, I have a six books for books for the TI-99/4a computer. They're the one's in my first TI video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eoBjUDMar84 I'm looking to expand the TI books that I have currently in trade for spare Atari books that I have in my personal collection. Is anyone interested in doing trading books with me? If so, then I'd like to use this thread to post the books I have, and others can post the books that they have for trade. If a few people like this idea, then over the next few days I'll make a list of TI books that I want and a list, maybe with pictures, of the Atari books that I have for trade. So... is anyone interested in trading their spare or unwanted TI books with me? Adam P.S. Oh, and if you have no interest in Atari books, then you can always give your spare TI books to me...
  23. This is a more targeted continuation of the blatantly hijacked thread <here>. Executive Summary of this go-forward: The NanoPEB being periodically peddled on eBay is a wonderful little device, providing 3 virtual disk drives which map to a Compact Flash card, a 32K RAM expansion, and an RS232 serial port. Unfortunately, the serial port was set up in such a way that virtually all existing Terminal Emulation software packages take one look at that serial port, and promptly throw their dish on the floor. The technical details of that I leave to vaster minds than mine to explain. Meanwhile, I have slapped together what I think is a toy many of us would like to have and use, a WiFi modem that is RS232 compatible and doesn't cost an arm and a leg. The prototype has been proven with several IBM-ish 8088 machines, and I have been surfing Telnet BBS's with it. I would like to test and use it with my TI-99/4A plus NanoPEB, but the terminal software always stops me, since none of them like my serial port. My current quest is to find, make, beg, borrow, steal or barter a package into working with the NanoPEB. The ultimate goal is to publish details of this very simple modem, so that others in this community can make their own for less than $10 and a few minutes work, and go BBS surfing using their household WiFi, Telnet, and a T-99/4A with either an "original" serial port or a NanoPeb. I'll explain how once it's tested, as I don't want folks clamoring to build one only to find that it doesn't work in this plane of existence. The modem itself works in another environment, but I'm a firm believer in end-to-end systems testing. Besides, I have a NanoPEB, so I'm greedy and want it to work with my TI-99/4A. So that's the lay of the land. In our last episode (thread) InsaneMultitasker had generously thrown me a software package thinking it might work. I'm sorry to report that it doesn't. It runs well up until the moment any byte is actually sent down the line, then it crashes. (Cursor stops blinking, and no keys respond.) To be thorough I connected a null modem cable between the NanoPeb and the modem, (they normally dock directly), but the behavior was the same. The quest continues,...
  24. Here we've got a TI-99/4A computer in its original box. Everything has been fully tested and works great, except where noted below. Please see provided pictures for exact condition of all items. Here's everything you get: TI-99/4A original black and silver model with box. All keys work. Fully play-tested with multiple games. Cosmetic issues include some scratches and the brushed aluminum top casing is coming up a bit on the front left side. The original box is worn. Joysticks - A pair of dual original TI joysticks are included but don't recommend using them. One of them is missing the stick part (but fire works!) and the other joystick works, but the "up" direction requires a little extra effort. It'll work in a pinch for one-player games, but I recommend purchasing an Atari joystick adapter ($10-15, my favorite is this one, which is also on eBay for slightly more $. That adapter can also be beautifully paired with this 3D case, if you're so inclined) so that you can use Atari-compatible joysticks of your choosing. Another great option is @RetroGameBoyz's TI gamepad. It works for single player only, or you can buy one of his Atari pads and use them with the aforementioned Atari adapter. The joystick port has been further tested with my personal TI joysticks and everything worked perfectly. Original OEM power supply - works as it should. Lots of manuals - User's Reference Guide, Beginner's Basic, Read this First, Teach Yourself Basic cassette manual, TI joysticks manual, and a TexNet flyer. Keyboard "strips" x 2 which you can write on for keyboard shortcuts (no strip holder, however, but the strips still sit on the computer fairly effectively). Miscellaneous - an untested OEM cassette player cable, in case you opt to get a cassette deck down the road, along with untested Teach Yourself Basic on cassette (two tapes). If you can't tell by now, I don't have a cassette deck/"TI Program Recorder" to test this cassette stuff with. Original OEM RF modulator does not seem to work but it is included for completeness. The good news is that composite monitor cables are readily available on eBay and are better than RF, anyway. I've always had success with Atari monitor cables. I just don't have a spare at the moment. I'm asking $50 plus shipping but I can be flexible if need be. Looking for some TI games, too? I have a bunch of extras. A full list is available here. Shoot me a PM and we can come up with a great discounted deal for you as part of a larger bundle with this computer. Let's put something together for you to get your TI-on!
