While I was first exploring the comp.sys.ti newsgroup, I was pleased to find a post advertising that the TI Chips Users Group was still in existance. I was a member of the group back about 1984 or 1985, and was president for about 6 months before I went away to college.
For more information (corresponding memberships available), go to the TI Chips Info. page.
MICROpendium was a TI-99/4A specific magazine that had been around for over 12 years.
Sadly, they ceased publication on July 31, 1999.
They still maintain a web site at http://home.earthlink.net/~jkoloen/ and their email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Through an ambitious project spearheaded by Charles Good and Mike Wright, all issues of Micropendium have been scanned into a document format and uploaded to the WHT FTP server at ftp://188.8.131.52/.
The mailing list is no longer maintained. Instead, check the on line users group site- link is above.
These articles were published in the Lima Users Group newsletter, and were then posted on the newsgroup by Charles Good. Written by Bill Gaskill, the four articles cover the rise and fall of the TI-99/4A, and are great reading.
