This is what I plan to request:

 

Tomy Tutor, CC40, 99/2, 99/8, Cortex, 990 mini

 

Subforum for standalone non-4A systems with a 16 bit CPU belonging to the TMS99xxx processor family.

 

Following systems qualify:

  • Tomy Tutor, Pyuuta
  • Texas Instruments CC-40
  • Texas Instruments TI-99/2
  • Texas Instruments TI-99/8
  • Powertran Cortex
  • Range of 990 minicomputers
  • Breadboard computers with TMS99xxx CPU

 

I left the 9960 Geneve out as it needs the TI-99/4(A) Peripheral Expansion Box for hosting.

 

I really like the subforum structure suggested, but my two cents on the Geneve 9640, I would like to have e separated section for it too.

It is ok that will need a PEB to work but is also true that it is a complete different computer not a TI-99/4A, and it require dedicated settings and software.

 

all the other choices are perfect to my eyes.

Unlike most of the computers on the list, the Geneve runs ~95% of all TI software and uses much of the same peripheral hardware.  Geneve comments usually appear in TI-based threads with very few topics created solely for the Geneve software or hardware.  Since there are so few Geneve-only threads, it probably wouldn't matter one way or the other.

Ciro, I've decided to not include the Geneve 9640. I do see pro's and con's for a separate section.

But as all other systems qualify as real standalone systems, I'd like to keep it that way (at least for now).

I propose to see how this all evolves and decide at a later time.

 

First need to get the subforum created, request to Albert is on its way. 😀

Any news?

 

No, it’s kinda sad. Seems that Albert has gone missing in action.

Has been very slow on responding to email requests, if at all.

 

Hope all is fine.

Maybe there is a subforum for requesting new subforums. ;)

 

That's a great idea!  ;)

 

I'll create the new forum later this evening.

Wait a sec, you think we should jump into creating a sub forum for suggesting sub forums without a planning sub forum to plan it first?

Somebody obviously did not get the memo.  Send over another copy.

I assume you did not neglect to include your TPS report?

Speaking of which, my copy of "A Christmas Carol" just fell on my foot.  It hurt like the Dickens.
