Bill Gaskillís TI-99 history site is now being hosted on 99er.net.
You can visit at http://timeline.99er.net .

TI99 BUMPER STICKERS
TI99 bumper stickers are still available, and theyíre only $3 each! This price includes postage within the U.S. You can see what they look like and get the ordering information at http://www.99er.net/stickers.html .

GET YOUR OWN FREE SITE AT 99ER.NET
I am offering free web space to anyone that would like to set up a few pages or even a whole site. The only requirements are that you agree to the terms of service, and that the content must be similar to the content of 99er.net - the TI-99/4A, Geneve, Speak & Spell, etc. Sorry, but any pages or files not related to these topics will be cause for removal.

There are two options- 2MB of space in a user account where you can store a few pages and pics about your system, a project that you're working on, or your thoughts and memories about your system. These users will be able to access their folder and upload their files through a web interface.

The second option is applying for a hosted website in your own subdomain at 99er.net. Again, pages and files must be related to the required content. Hosted websites will be located at yourname.99er.net, and you'll get 10~20MB of web space. In order to be considered for a hosted site, you'll need to apply with your ideas for the site- the site must have new and original content/ideas/subject matter.

In order to avoid abuse and unwanted site content, there is no automated process of receiving a website or page. You'll need to email me at [email protected] and tell me a little about yourself and what you would like to do with your site/page. Also, please include your request for your username- this name will be the same as the name of the folder where your site or pages will be located. If everything sounds good, I'll get back to you with the rules and login information.
Hope to hear from you!

HELP SUPPORT THE TI99 HOME COMPUTER PAGE
I cover the cost of web hosting 99er.net out of my own pocket. The site doesnít make any money- I just do it because I enjoy it and love these old computers. I donít mind paying for it, but I will gratefully accept donations. You can donate with your credit card through Amazon.com by going to http://www.99er.net/cgi-bin/to.cgi?l=99erdonate . If donít want to use Amazon, email me and arrangements can be made to use Paypal or standard mail.

If youíre not inclined to donate money, at least click on the banner ads on the top of the site pages. By doing so, the site gets $0.06.
Thanks!

CASTLE DRACULA- TEXT GAME FOR USE WITH V9T9 EMULATOR
Back in 1983, Paul Johnson wrote a text adventure called Castle Dracula for several platforms, including the TI-99/4A. The game sold on cassette tape, and Paul has had it converted to a a file that will work with the V9T9 Emulator.

You can get the cassette file here from the download page at http://www.99er.net/download.html, or from Paul's website at http://www.johnson46.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/Ocd.htm.

Instructions are included in the zip file that should get you up and going in no time by using the V9T9 Runner application even if you're not familiar with V9T9.

It doesn't have anything to do with the TI, but if you're interested in computer crime or data recovery, I also have a computer forensics site at http://computerforensics.99er.net . Be sure to check out the file recovery programs that are available for download!

CLASSIC99 EMULATOR UPDATE
Tursi has updated his Windows TI-99/4A emulator, Classic99. He added a number of ROMs to the package, added 'magic' disk ability so things like Editor/Assembler can have their support files available, added a menu for ROM/system selection, and added more reasonable defaults for today's machines. His emulator can be downloaded from his site at http://www.harmlesslion.com/software/Classic99. Speaking of Tursi, a link to a photo page showing how he built a PC into a TI-99/4A case can be found on his site at http://www.harmlesslion.com/gallery/TI99PC?page=1 .

Play Hunt The Wumpus
Steven Baldasty has emulated the TI-99/4A Hunt The Wumpus game with a cool Java applet. You can play it at http://alumni.plymouth.edu/~sbaldasty04/wumpus/wumpus.html . If all you're getting is a gray box on the screen and no game, you may need to download and install the Java plugin at http://www.java.com/en/index.jsp (follow the 'free download' link in the corner).

The TI-99 Hall Of Fame site has been created as a place to nominate and vote for those that you feel have contributed the most to the TI-99 community. Visit the site at www.ti99hof.org and cast your vote!
