September 4, 2023 – September 2023 Issue of TRS8Bit

Dusty has released the September 2023 issue of the TRS8Bit newsletter. Here’s what he had to say:

The September 2023 edition of TRS8BIT is now available from the Downloads page.
In this issue (one of the largest September issues ever!). Ian Mavric reports what to look for at the T.A.2023, gives us the low-down on M3 & M4 power supplies and continues his article on restoring and upgrading the Co-Co3. Leon Heller found some very interesting, Tandy related websites. New contributor, Tu-Bardh, has converted a ‘PET’ number-sorting game program for us all to enjoy.
E.T. Fonehume has another BASIC one-liner, zapping stars! Vince Otten has part 2 of his ‘Software tools in BASIC’. ‘At the READY> prompt’ shows a quirk in a FOR-NEXT loop. Andy tells us how the ‘Tandy-thing’ happened for him. ‘The Way We Were’ looks at BASIC compilers, TRS-80 software and a Model 2000 review. Pascal Holdry offers an early look at his current hardware project. Handy Hints is just for any model railway buffs out there. Peter Phillips sorts out a 40+ year old bug in David Ahl’s maze generating program. Another new contributor, Wellswang, runs across hardware problems and a manual miss-print which caused rather a bit of confusion.
Tom Nardi restores the cheapest Tandy at a swap-meet. Want to see a M3 using A.I. on the internet; yeh, I couldn’t believe it too. And finally, there’s the details of this years competition. Don’t forget, time’s running out to get your entries in. George Phillips has updated his competition page with information on the structure of Z-80 opcodes and an example disassembler.
Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this issue.
