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.

December 4, 2014 – Model 4P in the News – Dr. Who


It seems that ‘a hacker who goes by GP2000′ has made the news by getting a Model 4P to display the opening sequence of Dr. Who, complete with sound. Congratulations GP2000, who shall remain anonymous (except that we all know who that is). One of the stories can be read at Extremetech.
