I have a Tandy coco that won't boot. It just shows garbage on the screen. I think it's the rom but I don't know. Can someone tell me what it is?

No, but here is a link to the service manual:

Another guy says to re-seat the G.I.M.E. chip and gives some other possible fixes here:

Just what everyone needs to get their old systems some internet access....

So it's basically a one port terminal server. :) Nicely done. But in the tradition of retro mods, it isn't complete until it's placed inside an adorable little model of a Hayes Smartmodem case, similar to the way people put their Commodore 64 SD-card drives into cases that look like tiny 1541's.

I guess there are enough Sinclair emulators out there to make the program usable by anyone with the inclination to do so.

Zeddyfox!  Looks cool.  Might need to get the old TS-1000 working again.

This probably does not go here, but thought I might share it:

Tron via ssh :-)

I know we lost doors, but thought it might give some folks a sense of nostalgia.  Not from the - "oh this is immediately cool" factor, but more from the - "Oh, crap... nobody else is here and I have to invite someone via some other means to play" factor.

 Not saying the second way of looking at things is bad.  In fact I feel it is good as it does not come from (at least at first) from an - "I want to exploit you for data and money" - angle.  It would seem to come from a - "I built something that I think would be fun" - angle.  Something that would suggest altruism (kinda like the good folks here at Uncensored).

Hm... I wonder if there's a community of Citadelians who might take interest in creating door applications for terminal amusement.

A lot of this retro stuff makes me want to find an old Sinclair just to experience it once.  My "really bad computer" from that era was a TI-99/4A so it's probably just as awful.

I guess most of it is just nostalgia.  I don't miss my TI or feel nostalgic about it.  I do feel that way about my S-100 CP/M system, but since that type of system was usually experienced through a terminal it's easily reproduced.

If I were a serious instructor of software engineering, I would embrace these old machines (perhaps via emulator) and use them for instruction.

Because I think they're second to nothing else out there for learning how to do this stuff well.

Hope that comes with good life insurance...
