We had our 1st online meeting with Zoom on May, 2nd 2020. Went very well. Had several show-n-tell subjects and even a rack server. Had lots of discussion on many topics from retro computers to the latest FPGA projects by the members. Fun time for all.
A TI-99 set up with a Nano-PEB. The Nano-PEB emulates 3 disk drives, 32k of memory and a serial port for the TI99
Diskless drives for the CoCo2. The system plugs into the cartridge slot and creates multiple drives and even some cartridges. Notice the cool retro CRT TV being demonstrated on.
wireless modem created by one of our own. can connect the retro PC to the internet through a serial port.
this is an early attempt at a chip level programmable tablet/laptop. The idea never got very far but it potentially could be reprogrammed to many of the chipsets of the era.
So far the agenda is a discussions showing of exotic computers from other other lands. We will have a demonstration of some computers from the Cold War era Eastern bloc and maybe more.
Note: date may change due to the current virus issues.
if you live in the San Antonio/ Austin area join our little group of retro computer & electronics enthusiast at the Central Texas Retro Computer & Electronics Club. We are currently meet in the Austin area but anyone in the South Central & Central Texas area is welcome. During the Pandemic we have started meeting online and have found it very enjoyable too.
