Welcome to Show 035! This week's Topic: The Texas Instruments 99/4A Microcomputer!
Topics and links discussed in the podcast...
Use your old DOS PC as a Commodore hard drive. How?
A 21st century recreation of a 1960s educational computer toy? Now, that's retro! Check out the DigiComp I v 2.0 from Minds-On Toys.
If you're like me, and you think an Altair looked cooler than your modern-day LAN party case, have a look at the AltairPC project at Briel Computers.
Commodore 64 native code, cooked on a SuperCPU C64 or PC. Interested? Check out Slang, recently updated!
Wikipedia article on the TI 99/4A - great info, as always.
Another of my favorite sites, Old Computers Dot Com, with their coverage of the 99/4A. Check out the forums.
An early 80s review of the 99/4A, from Creative Computing, on the Atari Magazines site. Cool!
Want to see some photos of the 99/4A, and it's various stuff? Here's a Flickr site that will get you hooked up.
The TI 99/4A Tech Pages - bits, bytes, schematics, pinouts - it's all here!
There are several emulators for the 99/4A, including the Win994a simulator.
The excitement continues with an annual fair in Chicago - couldn't find a main site, but there are videos of the event for your viewing enjoyment.
