  • Jason Brady has sent 59 disks which I received and converted to DSK’s yesterday. I will be going theough them soon, so look for new software in the next few days.

January 8, 2001

  • Added a Link to Jeff Vavasour’s On-Line Level I Emulator
  • The TOSEC people will be releasing a TRS-80 ORCH-80/85/90 database of the first 1322 ORCH files I have renamed shortly. It will be available through ROMDOCTOR. What RD does is scan your files and rename them according to size and CRC to a uniform name. I still have not gotten any volunteers, so the project is all me and slow going. I am about 1/2 way done through the ORCH’s. Eventually, I do intend to do the Model I, III, and IV files so that people can be clear about their collections.

January 12, 2001

  • The TOSEC page has recently been updated with a bunch of new RomDoctor data files, including 1,322 ORCH-80/85/90 names
  • I don’t normally do this, but this page could be one of the funniest things I have ever read.
  • Charles Grisamore is lending a hand with the ORCH renaming … Charles – Thank you!

January 14, 2001

  • I have added Jeff Vavasour’s updated CoCo II emulator on the CoCo page.
  • Today is probably the last day to click my banner. As always, please order through the site if you order from Amazon.

February 3, 2001

  • I am contemplating converting my hosting from NETCOM dialup to EARTHLINK no-dialup to save some money now that I have no site revenue. I have pretty much gotten it to the point where my netcom email is only getting spam. This transition MAY cause a disruption in the site, since I have no confidence in Earthlinks ability to make the purely internal transition smoothly. If you can’t get the site, it isn’t down – it’s earthlink messing up.
  • The TOSEC list has been submitted. Special thanks to Charles Grisamore (of ORCH-90 fame) for cataloging R-Z.

February 8, 2001

  • Thank those of you who emailed suggestions – I have elected the Amazon.com honor program, which now appears on my ads page. All support is appreciated.
  • There is independent development going on by Spoiler of TOSEC databases for the Model 1, 3, and 4 stuff – So those of you with collections may soon have a way of weeding out the good from the bad (and dupes).
  • I have not forgotten about the disks I have received … I anticipate getting to them shortly.

  • Happy Valentines Day.
  • I did some more software conversions, but they are at home … I will post them tomorrow.
  • I am on the phone with Earthlink now (actually, on hold — my call will be answered in twenty-one—minutes) … again, if the site seems to go down, it is just Earthlink failing to handle a simple transaction. While it may not work, don’t forget that the IP for the site is 207.221.40.207 (but that may change too).
  • I had to call Earthlink back … that was only 16 minutes. I did not place the order, but when I do it is a full site move – IP address and domain shift. I anticipate doing this on Tuesday. They claim that they leave both sites up simulatenously so that while NSI does its work, it’s always pointing to a working site. I’ll believe that when I see it. Anyway, just wanted to let you know that if it goes down about Tues-Wed of next week, it is not permanently down.

The next casualty is the message board. I got this today …

Dear InsideTheWeb message board owner,

Since January 1997, InsideTheWeb has provided free message boards to online
communities. Our goal has always been to offer an easy-to-use and
technically superior format for threaded discussions. Though we have hit a
few bumps along the way, we feel we have succeeded in that ideal.

As some of you may know, internet advertising revenues have fallen to
extremely low levels over the past several months. Supporting a community
service such as InsideTheWeb is impossible without a secure source of
funding and we are being forced to close our doors. While there are
certainly other means of generating income, we do not have the ability to
address them without sustaining significant losses in the foreseeable
future.

Therefore, as of March 5th, we will be shutting down all InsideTheWeb
message boards. Because you have worked hard to build your message board, we
have provided you with a feature in the control center that will allow you
to save your board's contents to your local computer. To access this
feature, simply login from http://www.InsideTheWeb.com, select "Download
Board Data" from the drop down list, and click "Go!". Next, just click each
button for the type of data you wish to save.

We sincerely appreciate your patronage and support and hope that you will be
able to find another forum that can meet your needs. We have thoroughly
enjoyed talking with many of you over the years and wish you the very best.
It is people like you that made InsideTheWeb the best message board
community on the internet! Thank you!

Regards,

InsideTheWeb Customer Service

  • For those of you in the general emulation community, please keep in mind that all your TRS-80 are belong to us.
  • The old netcom servers seem to be back again. Earthlink has the audacity to charge a setup fee for doing them the favor of relocating from their legacy servers to their current ones. Needless to say, I have no intention of letting them charge that.
  • The old netcom servers seem REAL slow … I think I am going to put in the order to move the site today.

  • RomCenter has support for the TRS-80 basic/cmd programs, courtesy of TOSEC. The programs can be found at http://www.romcenter.com/download.htm and the DAT files can be found at http://www.emuhq.com/tosec/dattable.htm. The Model 1 DAT file handles 3375 files, the Model 3 DAT file handles 1112 files, and the Model 4 DAT file handles 1212 files. RomDoctor, which is a TOSEC product, will not support these models as RomDoctor supports renaming of the underlying file, which would make running the programs impossible as the long filenames don’t quite work under NewDos/80. RomCenter will merely audit your trs-80 library.
  • Dave Keil has updated his COCO II emulator to v1.10. He also has uploaded a number of COCO Cartridges. Find the emulator on the Emulator page.
  • I finished the 5.25’s from the most recent batch! There are still plenty more unsorted to go …

I was strolling through the net (one day …), and I came upon a discontinued Model I emulator. It is source code only, written in Acorn Desktop C. It is available on the emulator page.

  • Nick Andrew is currently ‘donating’ 170 disk images to the archive. The first 57 DSK’s have been received. I will be converting those as quickly as I can. There are also two other people out there, with 40 and 400 disks each, who I am speaking with. Let’s keep our fingers crossed, and THANK YOU NICK!

Well … after 2 1/2 years I finally broke down and decided to replace my Dell XPS R450. I have ordered:

  • CUSL2C, 400Watt Power Supply Full Tower (with extra Fan), 16X Pioneer DVD Player, 3 1/2″ Floppy, and 1GHZ P3 from Monarch Computers [no tax];
  • SoundBlaster Live 5.1, Keyboard, and Intellimouse from Buy.com [Free Shipping]
  • Linksys BEFSR41 Router from Amazon.com [10% off and no tax, plus $30 rebate]
  • Linksys 10/100 Network Card and 30GB IBM 75GXP 7200RPM ATA-100 Hard Drive from Buy.com [Free Shipping]
  • 256MB PC133 Memory from crucial.com (the only place I will buy RAM from)
  • Since monitors, video cards and SCSI cards are too expensive, I am going to cannibalize those from the Dell for the time being.

Jonathan Berman has pointed out that Jeff Vavasour updated his Model I emulator to revision “F”, fixing the speed problem and the rs-232 causing crashes problem.

For those of you not familiar with the GOODxxx tools, an individual named COWERING has written command line tools which rename roms/programs based upon their crc’s. This is very useful for sorting out a messy colleciton. You may have seen discussions about the TOSEC databases for Model 1, 3, 4, and ORCH, but Cowering has written a GOOD utility for the COCO! Get it on the emulator page.

Serge Lachance has released his Model I Emulator called Ti-RS-80 … here’s what he says:

I've been working on my emulator lately and I got a new version.
It is still not supporting disk units, but has a nice windows interface, a very nice debugger with a one-line assembler.
The window is resizable. The speed evaluation is based on the real timing of each Z80 instructions and is updated every second or less.
It supports the original TRS-80 keyboard mapping or the windows keyboard settings mapping.
It can work with or without ROM image.
If there's a file "RomImage.mem" in the same directory as the emulator, it is loading it and using it.
It can work in screen saver mode with an extension of ".SCR" or as an executable with an extension of ".EXE"
In screen saver mode, the little preview screen works in the screen properties window.

  • As those of you who follow comp.sys.tandy may recall, Elmo J. had become intruiged by an ebay auction he saw for a Model 1 with an odd dos on the photographed screen. Although he did not win the auction, the seller sent him a copy of what was claimed to be TRSDOS v3.0 for the Model I. It is not a master (and contains random programs).

Tim Mann has just release v2.0 of his CatWeasel utilities. Here’s his general description:

Background: The Catweasel ISA floppy disk controller is an add-in card
for the PC ISA bus. It uses specialized hardware, not a standard floppy
disk controller chip, and it can be programmed to read and write just
about any disk format.

I've written a pair of programs for the Catweasel called cw2dmk and dmk2cw.
dmk2cw is new in release 2.0 of the package.

cw2dmk can use a Catweasel ISA to read several kinds of floppy disk, some
of which ordinary PC controllers have trouble with, and save them in the
DMK disk image format.  DMK is a format used by the Unix TRS-80 emulator
xtrs and by David Keil's TRS-80 emulator for MS-DOS.  cw2dmk does not
just read TRS-80 disks. It can make an exact image of any disk written
using a Western Digital 177x/179x floppy disk controller, a PC-style
NEC765-compatible controller, or a Digital Equipment Corporation RX02
controller.

dmk2cw uses a Catweasel ISA to write any DMK image back to
a real floppy disk. It can handle the same kinds of disks as cw2dmk.

Currently no tools other than TRS-80 emulators and dmk2cw can use disk
images in DMK format, but perhaps more tools will be written in the future.
The ability to read disks with cw2dmk and write out copies with dmk2cw
already provides a useful way of archiving disks from old machines and
making physical copies when needed. A likely future direction for
cw2dmk/dmk2cw is to be able to write/read JV1 and JV3 disk images (these
are other common TRS-80 emulator formats) or raw arrays of sectors, in
cases where the disk can be represented in one of those formats.

The programs are free software, released under the GPL.  You can download
the source code and executables for both Linux and MS-DOS from my TRS-80
resources page, http://www.tim-mann.org/trs80resources.html. The MS-DOS
version also runs on Windows 95.  Even those who prefer to build their
own sampling hardware instead of buying a Catweasel may find the source
code of some use.

Jim Veneskey has donated Talking Adventure I: Forbidden Planet I for Model I (DMK) – William Demas (1981). He used Tim Mann’s CATWEASEL utilies and duplicated the entire protected self-booting disk. What this means is that you can actually read all the hidden messages which were put on the diskette in unused sectors, such as adventure announcements, hints, requests for programmer’s to submit their programs for consideration, etc.


July 22, 2001

  • Cowering has released GoodCOCO v0.999.3 supporting 55 COCO ROMs.
  • I have 53 of the 55 COCO ROMs which are represented in this version posted on the COCO page.

July 26, 2001

The GoodCoco v0.999.3 COCO ROM set is complete!


August 1, 2001

James Brusewitz was kind enough to donate a missing LDOS version. He has provided LDOS v5.1.3/R for the Model I to the archive. He did a sector for sector dump, and has noted that the Radio Shack source disks were shipped with a deleted file, which had been designed to support double sided drives. The sector-by-sector copy has allowed this to remain intact as well. Note that these are DMK images.


August 14, 2001

  • I have a lead on a couple of new stashes of diskettes … let’s keep our fingers crossed
  • There are two new sets of hardware up on the For Sale page – both people interested in the TRS-80’s going to a loving home. Check it out.

August 14, 2001

Bill Hogue (of Big Five Software fame) has put up a website: http://www.bigfivesoftware.com. It is quite interesting.


September 2, 2001

Tim Mann has been busy – he has released v2.4 of his CatWeasel Utilities and v4.8 of his xtrs TRS-80 Emulator.


September 5, 2001

  • Thomas Ally has donated Blinking Cursor and Repeating Keys for Model I.
  • Neil Morrison has donated a new addition to the TRSDOS v1.3 Patches zip file.
  • Free Model 4’s to those willing to pick them up from Alexandria, VA – PLEASE DO NOT ASK THE DONATOR TO SHIP, he is elderly and cannot do it. See the For Sale page.

September 28, 2001

  • Sorry for the lack of updates … I am getting married in 6 weeks …
  • Earthlink (the host for www.trs-80.com) is FORCING a transition. It will occur no later than October 29th. I must read a bunch of stuff about the transition and change some settings. Just be aware that the site may be down for a few days at some point.

September 29, 2001

I have read up on this Earthlink transition. Nowhere in their faq does it make mention of what happens to the domain name. I will probably trigger the transition in the evening of Sunday, September 30th, so look for down time. They have a temporary mirror of the site at http://wfp46003.temp.w1.com, so if www.trs-80.com is down, try that.


September 30, 2001

I believe the site has already been transitioned. If this shows up, it has been, since I am only uploading this update to the new server.


October 4, 2001

The downloads are not working – the darn Earthlink cgi bin must be different than the Netcom one. We are looking into it..


October 9, 2001

  • How is it that people can take the time to compose lengthy emails about the downloads not working, but they cannot click the “NEWS” button to have seen that I know about it? Just a rant. Thank you.
  • I am dealing with earthlink. All the old CGI scripts were shell scripts and those, apparently, do not work on the Earthlink site. Lord Spambraticus of Borg has re-written them into Perl. The Perl tests out flawlessly on the Earthlink Perl Debugger. Of course, however, the earthlink servers won’t run them. That’s progress for ya. I will let you know when it is up and running.

October 10, 2001

This is never going to end at this rate. If ANYONE reading this has successfully gotten PERL redirect scripts to run on an Earthlink server, please email me. LSOB (see below news) seems to be having email difficulties (all my emails to him bounce, regardless of from where I send them), so I cannot communicate with him in resolution of this issue.


October 11, 2001

George Phillips has solved the PERL problem, and all downloads are now functional. Rob and George – Thank you!


October 13, 2001

I have been beefing up the POCKET COMPUTER sections including the main page (adding 6 pocket computers) and the pocket computer page. PLEASE help fill in any missing information!


October 14, 2001

Neil Morrison has created a web site dedicated to COCO Documentation —> http://members.tripod.com/coco_docs/index.htm.


October 23, 2001

  • Neil Morrison has provided the site with the Vidtex Escape Sequences.
  • Neil Morrison has provided the site with the Radio Shack Blackjack Documentation.

Model 102 available on the sale/trade page for the cost of packing and shipping. It is a complete system weighing 35 pounds, so don’t think you will be walking away with it for $20 … but its definitely a good move for someone with an eye for the system.

Juergen Buchmueller has written a TRS-80 Emulator in Java.


November 9, 2001

Excellent News. I am constantly being asked “I have a TRS-80 and want to sell it.” You know what, we have a company that has been in business a long time that buys these things. If you are in the market for a TRS-80, you can buy it from them (they work on them when they get them) without the risk of those EBAY people who ship broken merchandise and empty boxes (can you tell my feelings about EBAY?). Anyway, mosey on over to DCS Industries. Their site is Internet Explorer only though, Netscape doesn’t seem to work.


November 16, 2001

I understand that ender.com is down for a little while for maintenance and will be back in a few days, and that is where the files are hosted. Everyone will need to be patient, particularly since I am getting married in 2 days, and Ender.com is located in Australia where I would have no control over it anyway. Sorry for any inconvenience.


November 23, 2001

Just got back from my honeymoon to be greated by 7893478432 emails telling me the files are still not working. Since those people obviously do not read the news 🙂 I guess this post will not help them. Anyway, Lord Spambraticus is on his way back to Australia and has advised me that the downloads will be restored by Monday the 26th. Sorry for any inconvenience.


November 29, 2001

Still no word on the downloads. If anyone out there has about 200MB of space they would like to pony up as a mirror, your emails would be welcome. All I would need is FTP access in and the URL of the files stored in whatever directory I was given. I can probably have downloads working within a day of that. Meanwhile, I am sure Rob continues to work on the current problem.


November 30, 2001

Space is being made available – two people offered (Thank you Alasdair and thank you Elmo). I will try to get the files up and running tomorrow. #-L in the Model 1 directory are back online now, though.


December 1, 2001

  • Thank you all for your offers. I think I am ok for now. The Emulators, Diskpaks, Disksets, Scott Adams, Coco, and Model I are back online.
  • I believe all downloads are now back online.
  • I have updated the woefully out of date Emulators page. Tim Mann is at v4.8, and Dave Keil is at 6.2.
  • I have added new info to the Model 1 Emulator page, including Jeff Vavasour’s Level 1 emulator and Jeff’s source code for his Model 1 emulator v3.02u and his Coco II Emulator v1.6.
  • Added Retrieve v1.3, written by Jeff Vavasour, can read Coco II and Coco III disks in an IBM drive for conversion. It can be found on the emulator page.
  • Added links to a System 80, LNW-80, and Video Genie page.

December 2, 2001

For those of you trying to buy TRS-80 equipment, give DCS Industries a try!


December 5, 2001

Yay – Ender.com (thank’s Rob) is back online and www.trs-80.co.uk is also online as a mirror. The Scripts have been updated to randomly choose a mirror location to ease up on bandwidth. If you click on a file and it doesn’t work, please tell me, but also please click on it again and it will pick up the other mirror. The UK mirror is not fully populated, but ender.com is. Thanks for the patience.


December 17, 2001

  • Some new diskettes (Model 1) are on their way to me from Lee Pauser. As a result, I have procured a Pentium/75 in my attempt to create a dedicated TRS-80 reading/writing machine. If there are any networking gurus out there, I could use a bit of help. Here’s the deal:
  • Because it is a Pentium/75 with 16MB of RAM, and because I do not want Windows ’98 interfering in the floppy reads, I have it booting into Windows ’98 DOS. Is there any way on this green planet of ours to get this machine to take part in my existing Linksys Cable Router network? It is currently 2 Windows ’98 machines, communicating only through file and printer sharing. I would love this third machine to be communicative as well because I need to get the converted programs on and off somehow.
  • Please email any suggestions. Thanks!

  • When Lee Pauser sent over the disks, he also included the manual to Tuesday Morning Quarterback. Download the 5MB PDF here.
  • I have ordered a Catweasel. This should make conversion of the Model I disks much easier thank’s to Tim Mann’s Catweasel Utilities v2.4.

December 19, 2001

  • I have been sitting on this forever, and I must apologize both to Phil Ereaut and to the site’s users. Philipe has written an amazing MSDOS based DSK/DMK Utility (now v3.0) which will walk the disk sectors of a DSK/DMK file. It will also disclose the track count, density, etc., and, for NewDos/80 disks, disclose the PDRIVE setting applicable to that DSK/DMK file. It is wonderful. You can download it here.
  • Thank you all for your networking suggestions. Solutions included Laplink (which I did use last night to get the latest software over) and Windows for Workgroups (which would run on such an underpowered system because it wouldn’t be underpowered for those days). However, with the purchase of the Catweasel, I will not need to use the Pentium — I will put the Catweasel in the Dell, with the motherboard hooked to the 3.5″ and the catweasel onto the 5.25″ (the catweasel does not provide for drive letter access and functions independently of any floppy drive controller). The Dell is fully networked by Windows ’98.

I have borrowed the scanner from my company over the 4 day weekend. I have decided to scan as many TRS-80 Microcomputer Newsletters as I can. They will be posted on the documentation page. The first 3 are now posted.


December 24, 2001

Wow – this is slow going. Anyway, Happy Holidays to all, and thanks for your visits!


December 25, 2001

The first 18 of the TRS-80 Microcomputer Newsletter are online. I am virtually positive that with the difficulty of this little project, they will never be all online. We’ll see how it goes.


December 29, 2001

Two more of the TRS-80 Microcomputer Newsletter are online, rounding out the first 20 and rounding out 1980.
