Hi from NYC, old time TX user n abuser

Post by paul ron » Wed Oct 04, 2017 3:53 am

I started using the TX computer when it first came out. Being involved in electronics Ive built and designed many peripherals and mods. There was a time when my best friend Cem and I would stay up till 5am programming some machine code only to have it crash when saving it to tape.... :evil:

I was also a member of an unofficial TX users group in Manhattan where we'd show off our latest inventions... a real sow n tell session of geeks hard at work.

I designed an 8255 IO and added a D/A to it as well for a teacher friend in Bklyn, Steve Kaye, who Id like to get in touch with again.

If anyone knows Steven, Please tell him Im here?

I still have all my TX stuff neatly stored in sealed boxes that I may open now that I see there is a users group and interested people still around. I also have tons of programs stored away as well as many Ive programed.

thanks for still showing interest,
The more you say the less people hear.

Howdy from the republic of Texas! (I can dream can't I?)

Finish what you start. Truth is over the mountaintop or six feet under.
