@Omega-TI asked me to upload a picture of my "before" setup, to this thread:

 

https://atariage.com/forums/topic/311431-best-plain-old-ti-basic-games/?do=findComment&comment=4634853

 

The idea, it seems, is that I'll upgrade my TI-99/4a system someday.  We'll see about that idea.  Right now it's simply the computer with one cart and an Atari joystick adapter  That's it.  I gave the computer a simple scrubbing so that it wouldn't look terrible in this picture.

I hope to get it to at least be able to load TI BASIC games in the next few days.  Last night I made a video of my meager TI collection.  I'll post it somewhere (here?) when I finish editing it.

 

I've only just browsed this thread, but there are some breathtaking systems here!

You never know how far down the rabbit hole you'll fall.  I've only been back into the TI for seven years, and that was after a twenty-three year 'break'.

 

This was my "re-entry" system back in 2013.  I never expected the bug to bite so hard the second time around, but the guys here kept me coming back with all the new hardware, software and conversation.

I have made some changes to my system.  Got pin the right angle micro USB adapters so I can finally use the speech synthesizer.  Used Parsec to test it.  It works but I suck at the game.  Also I had been using an AV2VGA converter and a 17” monitor as an upgrade to the 10 inch monitor I used for testing.  I got the pictured TV from eBay it is 15” which seems to be a better match to the computer.  Big enough that my old eyes can see things but not so big that it looks really pixelated.  I am still trying to test the tape player.

Got my Geneve working again this weekend, the hard disk must have taken a hit to sector 0 in the move last year as it wouldn't read anything.. I reformated and with Tim's reminder that you have to use rompage then reboot

120199704_10164798251355144_6916128287859948342_n.jpg?_nc_cat=100&_nc_sid=b9115d&_nc_ohc=248cNKtxZ3sAX_fIPBL&_nc_ht=scontent.fhio2-2.fna&oh=fabfd0fd354dd4dd27aa145acc7ccd2e&oe=5F99223E

after format I got it booting from the HFDC 40MB ST-251 drive.. 

120332216_10164798251535144_5722443031358666929_n.jpg?_nc_cat=111&_nc_sid=b9115d&_nc_ohc=B1Hp7ztYj5AAX-CCdRp&_nc_ht=scontent.fhio2-1.fna&oh=8441db91c4cb4d03b9e8f4553ec7036f&oe=5F95F4BC

Installed a TIPI-PEB and got that working:

telnetting to my BBS with Beery's TIPI enabled MYTERM:

20200928_085203_HDR.thumb.jpg.e7260ffc878969a34e4a9d230307521b.jpg
Now I can copy files easily to the TIPI drive and then use DM2K 3.0 to copy them to my hard disk.. and also back up the hard disk to the TIPI drive easily whenever its needed. 

Notice I am using the JEDIMATT42 USB keyboard interface (tacked up on the wall to keep it from shorting on things) and the Shift838 ps/2 mouse and SCART interface on the left side..

Looks terrific! I need to try to get my Geneve going.  I wish I could find videos on Geneve software, etc.
I'll make some and put them in my channel in YouTube

When I hovered over the image, it pointed to somewhere outside of atariage.  So I'm thinking they were not true attachments?  Or maybe the link was referenced external to the picture you uploaded.   Tried with Firefox (win laptop) and Safari on iphone.  they are showing up now and appear to be local to AA.
