donlafferty Posted February 26 Share Posted February 26 (edited) Howdy folks. I recently got reinterested in the old 8 bit computers, more specifically the C64 and while I was at it I decided to bring the TI99/4A I bought several years ago (for $20) back to life. I learned to program (BASIC) on my mom's TI99/4A after hurting my back in 1983. bought a C64 to have a computer of my own shortly after learning on the TI. I ended up going to DeVry in Phoenix shortly after that. I built a PC while at school out of a 4.77/10 MHz motherboard my brother had bought in Malaysia so my days of C64 came to an end. I went to work for Hughes Aircraft in 1987 and retired in 2009 and went to work for an antenna company and semi-retired from there in 2021. A few weeks ago I bought a C64 and 1541 and got it hooked up to an HDMI monitor using the Composite out. I realized I could use the same DIN cable for the TI. Now I would like to spend some time getting their keyboards responsive again and do some programming since I spent a large part of the last 36 years programing in VB and PHP so I'm a lot better at it then I used to be.
