• TI-994A

    From Mike Dippel@316:36/57 to All on Thursday, December 16, 2021 23:49:56
    A friend gave me a TI-994A for Christmas as well as the terminal emulator and some
    game cartridges. This was the year that Texas Instrument was discontinuing its
    production.

    I got a lot of enjoyment from it. I subscribed to Boardwatch magazine and spent time
    copying the code line by line from the magazine just to make a sprite move across the
    screen. I joined a Users Group that met in a library and befriended someone who had
    the complete Plato series. Plato was educational software that I insisted my son use to
    help him learn.

    My wife and I even flew to San Francisco in 1996 to attend the BBS Convention where I
    met Mr. Dvorak, the king of BBS'ing at that time.

    I hated to get rid of it, but I didn't have a use for it once I purchased my first computer
    (a Packard Bell 286) which of course was more useful to me. That new computer came
    with a years free subscription to Prodigy, the start of my real love for computers.

    Any one else own a TI-994A?
