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).
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.
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.
