newbie Hello world from Nebraska

Post by vwbz80a » Wed Nov 29, 2017 2:54 pm

hello all,

dug out my T/S 1000s this past week. Going to use them, mod them and perhaps use them for part for a home brew z80 computer. :)


one is still working. one has a broken keyboard. ("mine"} is just the mainboard and a ?? atari keyboard[48 keys] soldered to it. Modulator not working correctly.

interested in : ts1000,zx81, and ... RC2014 -OR- MPF-1 kits.

also: eighty-one emulator.

eBooks downloaded. some but including ZX81 rom dump.

:idea: :idea: :idea:

Paul, sirmorris,

Thanks for the welcome! (By the way, ;-). Where is the" !" On the T/S1000 ?
The keyboard that I wired to (mine) is a TI/99 mitsumi 48 key keyboard. 15 wire cable. 😁

That is a very good question! I looked very carefully at my TS1000's / ZX81's keyboard for the "!". And, I see no "!" on the certain keyboard! Sorry.
