This website is dedicated to the Texas Instruments Home Computer Family. It will feature historical aspects, unknown tidbits and a deep technical insight on all the released and unreleased computers and their peripherals. It is further a try to gather together the most complete list of TI internal documentation on these machines.
- TI-99/4 QI
TI Cpu based computers:
- Myarc Geneve 9640
- CDC 99/4A
- Tomy Tutor
- Tomy Tutor Mark II
- Tomy Tutor Junior
As this website was started in 2016, please be patient with me to get all information up.
My name is Klaus Lukaschek. I was born in 1980 in Vienna, Austria, when the TI-99/4 was already released. I got in contact with the TI-99/4A computer in 1983. Since that the machine fascinates me, it further set my profession. I am working as .net Web Developer in the IT industry.
In 2011 my brother and me refounded the Austrian TI-99 Usergroup as there was no activity in Austria back then.
Looks like a very nice site, Klaus.
Good luck with this great project. If there is anything from my collection you would like photographed, please let me know.
Glad to hear that you’ll be at Birkenau. I might take a drive down there myself to have a chat with you about ways to produce definitive rarity lists for software (in all formats), hardware and Literature.
Very best regards
The Coleco ADAM also sported the same Graphics Processor, The TMS9918, as the 99/4A.
not the place but are you steve from 9t9
Hi Ralph… been thinking about you in the last few months! I talked with Randy R this evening. Look me up on facebook!
Ralph, yes I’m the Steve from the 9T9 UG in Toronto. Look for me on Atariage (user 9T9er).
Very nice website added to the 99ers community !
Great job and really complete ti99 informations my friend ! Very nice the complete pictures also for TI99 prototype stuff !
Sounds like good site would be glad to share information with you.
great start keep up the good work
Hi, – great website bud!
I like the site. You can also add a couple of additional machines with TI CPUs to your list: Powertran Cortex, Powertran Cortex II, and Marinchip S9900. The Cortex BASIC that Stuart ported over came from these. . .and the Marinchip’s claim to fame is that it was designed as the host machine for the earliest version of AUTOCAD. It was also the machine that was used to develop/port a lot of software to the Cortex (mainly from the TI990 software library).
I like your website too!
It’s always a great pleasure to discover a website dedicated to the TI-99 🙂
Best regards from France,
The TI99/4a was my very first home computer. Back in those days infomation and money was an issue. Today it’s time 🙂
I’m really happy to find sites like yours, so I know I’m not the only one dealing with such vintage things.
Please keep your site up. I’m also thinking about dedicate a corner for the TI-stuff on my blog. Maybe I start with documenting my experiences with the brand new FinalGROM99 from Ralph Benzinger. It’s just great, we have 2017 and brand new gadgets are still released for the TI99/4a.
I like your site … Hoping that this can be a “Ti99-4a/Geneve Haven” … if I can help with documentation (I have a lot of TI-99 based Hardware Manuals) just let me know. 🙂
Ciao contact me on messenger
Dear Klaus, thanks for the site! Was wondering: would the compilation you provided back in 2015 still be available somehow (Web99[2015-12-25] v0.5 xmas edition)? Thanks!
