  • August 2, 2016 – TRS-BOX on any TRS-80 with a RS-232

    Pete Cetinski has improved his TRS-Box so that it now works with a serial port.

    TRS-Box is a Dropbox client for the TRS-80 Microcomputer. It allows you to navigate and copy files from and to your Dropbox from your TRS-80.

    Trs-Box used to require a TRS-80 Model I with MISE or a TRS-80 Model III or 4 with M3SE, but Pete has gotten it to run on any floppy or hard disk enabled TRS-80 which has a RS-232 interface (although will need to buy a serial-IP adapter).

    July 23, 2016 – R.I.P. Loyal Teac Drive

    It is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of the Teac FD-55GFR drive which has been used to make people DOS disks and to read people’s disks for them. It was a loyal worker, but was felled by a particularly gnarly set of disks I was reading for someone. Its duties will be taken over by a Mitsubishi drive that seems to be doing well on its first day on the job.
