Quite pleased with my new acquisition, a Cambridge Computers Z88. It fits 3 criteria I’ve been looking for: 1) it has a Z80 processor; 2) it’s British – it has BBC Basic; 3) it’s an early “laptop.” On top of that, I got it for a good price. Now to take some silly meeting notes!
it looks like it’s time to admit it’s beyond my skills to repair my second TI 99/4a micro. each attempt has made its problems worse 😬
being in downtown/soma in SF during a bank holiday feels a bit like going back in time to before all of the new buildings were finished and opened for use
got an Atari joystick adapter for my TI-99/4a. really enjoying the games on this platform – they’re just the right level of primitive
maxed out my titanium PowerBook G4’s ram at 1GB! while I already had more than enough memory for retro Mac OS games – 768MB – this should hopefully make Leopard run Not Like Total Crap
ahh I can’t wait for the joystick adapter for my TI-99/4a to arrive. I can’t imagine what possessed Texas Instruments to not use the “standard” Atari connector
my first experience with using a modern flash memory adapter on a retro device – the FlashRom 99 for the TI-99/4a. it’s quite an upgrade from loading programs from tape! it seems I need to clean the cartridge port on my micro though 🤔
Picked up a pair of TI-99/4A. There’s just something about that wedge form factor – I would say it’s overdue for a comeback!
