Pascal Holdry has asked all sites to remove links to his reverse engineered schematics, which I have done. If anyone finds any here, please let me know, and if anyone wants to know why there are no links to Pascal’s site, now you know why.

Floppy Days podcast, devoted to all types of vintage computing, recently devoted a podcast to Ian Mavric. Ian is a TRS-80 hardware genius and has done many repair videos as well as providing hardware technical support to this site and many other accomplishments.
The Floppy Days podcast can be found at http://floppydays.libsyn.com/floppy-days-76-interview-with-ian-mavric-trs-80.
The podcast also points to the following sites:

TRS-80 Trash Talk, a monthly podcast, has released Episode 16. The description is: In this episode the Trash Talkers are back from summer vacation to wish the TRS-80 a happy 40th birthday. In the first segment, we talk about Tandy Assembly, VCFMW, TRS-XENIX, the Tandy 3, PC-1 and the Network 4. In the second segment, Randy Kindig interviews trs-80.com’s Ira Goldklang.
The TRS-80 Trash Talk Podcast can be found at www.trs80trashtalk.com.
While not TRS-80 related, it seems the DMK format is catching on. A French developer has written a command line utility to take DMK images of MSX disks, and convert them into a format usable by a SuperCard Pro device (which I suspect is something MSX related). Source is included if you want to have a look. The page can be found at http://lhalter.free.fr/mgr/
Also, the 80 Microcomputing Magazines
and the Model 100 from the below posts are STILL available for those able to do local pickup. While the free Model 100 (right below) is STILL available, another person is offering most of the 80 Microcomputing magazines for free for local pickup in the St. Paul Minneapolis area.
As always, to keep away those would say “hey, would you ship” (when the above states local pickup only), please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can do a local pickup and I will relay in the order received.
Free for local pickup in Finksburg, Maryland: TRS-80 Model 100 (it works), a modem, a printer, software, manuals, AC adapter and a data cable. It also comes with he original cassette tape recorder but that doesn’t work. The take-up reel doesn’t spin. As always, to keep away those would say “hey, would you ship” (when the above states local pickup only), please contact me at email@example.com if you can do a local pickup and I will relay in the order received.
John Waitkus has turned over his TRS-80 software collection for archiving; thank you so much John!
If any of John’s old crew happens to read this, he would love to hear from you — please reach out to him at john at cws dash computersolutions dot com
