  • 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.

    Model II Kermit File Transfer, Linux Cross Assembler and KBU Repair

    Chris Osborne, @FozzTexx, has been tweeting a lot lately about his TRS-80 Model II repairs and other adventures in restoration and use.

    Not only did he restore the keyboard to new-like state (using supplies from the Dollar Tree) he was been busying porting a version of Kermit (file transfer protocol) that does proper hardware handshaking, and creating a Linux CP/M cross assembler in the process.
