What TI99 stuff you get for Christmas or gifted yourself.

Ordered some CC-40 stuff from ArcadeShopper which I suppose is a bit of a Christmas gift to myself.  Looking forward to doing some CC-40 development, when I get the time.

 

On the flipside, shipped out a couple copies of Hell's Halls in recent times that folks had said they were ordering as a Christmas gift to themself.

I got the Sidecar 32k, Tipi, Pi 3B+, FinalGROM99 along with Corei64 cases for all.  The Whole Enchilada. Having fun now!

They got keep an eye on those FinalGROM99. No telling what kinda havoc could be sprung on Australia if they were left out in the wild.   😁

Um.. I bought a 990/10A CPU card with TenX COBOL accelerator and Spectralogic disk controller.  What....

 

For stocking stuffer, I got parts and tools for crimping the large 0.093" Mate-n-Lok connector-cables.  Made a cable from the TM990/518A power supply, to a TM990 plug.  (Not the same as 990/10A.)  Also, in place of candy, Santa put hundreds of capacitors in there.  Mmm.

I didn't exactly get anything new for my system for Christmas, but I did get to spend a couple of days with soldering iron in hand doing hobby things, so all is good there. I'm actually just about finished with a slew of Red boards (just need to populate the chips and test them) and ten SAMS boards (a couple more things to solder (jumpers and voltage regulators) and then they'll be ready to populate with chips and test too. I've had more hobby time in the past week than I've had since the summer. . .

I gifted myself time to work on a few TI projects.

I made some progress also, after taking a year off,  relearning how my crazy programs work ;) 

 

I wanted to finish 5 games this year ( 2023 ) and well, I found a 6th game I want to do now also...  And it looks so cool, I may do that next.

 

My current game is just being optimized at this moment.  I want it to fit in a single file.  But I have a LONG way to go.

Hi all!

I'm just entered in the magic Ti-99 world!

I've self-gifted my first "set" to start 🤗

That's the external 220V European power supply. . .outputs the same AC voltages as the US 110V version

I bought an F18-a with my gifted Christmas monies. My son ordered a new XB27 Extended Basic 2.7 Suite cart from arcadeshopper because I blew something in my old one. We are waiting on that to arrive as I'm sure Jimmy ordered it on the last shopping day before Christmas. LOL
