March 30, 2015 – Info Needed for Grapfix 5.1


Pascal Holdry has been working on the difficult task of preserving TRS-80 hardware by mapping thenm out into schematics and parts lists. Right now he is in need of information on the physical board of the Grafix 5.1 Card. If anyone has such a board and is willing to provide information, pictures, etc. to Pascal, that would be great. Please contact me.

February 5, 2015 – Radio Shack Files for Bankruptcy


Radio Shack has filed for Bankruptcy. Although Tandy / Radio-Shack had long ago sold off any interest they had in the TRS-80, it is still a sad day. I am sure all of us have fond Radio Shack memories, most likely sitting there messing around with their Model I display model. Farewell Radio Shack.

December 16, 2014 – Phillip Ereaut Has Passed Away

December 16, 2014 – Phillip Ereaut Has Passed Away


Phillip Ereaut passed away on December 6th at age 76. Phil lived in Australia and was one of the first people to provide utilities to fill needs of the TRS-80 emulation community. Back in 2006 Phil wrote a program to extract files from a DSK/DMK image which was useful when all other means failed. He also wrote the only utility to display what the PDRIVE settings of a DSK image were (now a fuction that TRSTools offers). Finally, he wrote a program to show the track data and allow for hex editing of DMK and DSK images. Phil was a great supporter of the TRS-80 emulation community, and he will be missed.
