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.

CLAIMED … July 13, 2016 – Model I and Model 4P For Free (or Cost of Shipping)

A site visitor has advised the following is available either free for local pickup or for the cost of pack and ship. As always, first come first served. Details as follows:

I have both a working TRS-80 Model I w/expansion interface and a Model 4p. Unfortunately most of the daily use software disks no longer read. I also have a hard disk drive for the TRS-80 from Clone Computers that no longer boots up. In addition I have manuals in good condition for TRSDOS 6.0, Dosplus 3.5 & 4.0, Montezuma Micro CP/M,and a Model 4p service manual. There are original software disks, not used except for installation, that may or may not be readable. We are moving and I will give it all away to whomever is interested in paying the freight or picking it up, rather than tossing it. We are located near Chagrin Falls, OH.
