Okay, a while back an Uber programmer by the name of Stuart Conner wrote an Internet browser for the TI-99/4A.  Well, he's been constantly improving it.  Version 8 of the cartridge version will be released very soon.

 

Here is a quick sneak peek video I slapped together tonight to show a little bit of it off...

 


 

I hope you enjoyed it!

That is really cool!  Can you explain how you actually connect the TI to the internet?

I have a TI but very rarely ever use it.  It's not my favorite but I do play BurgerTime on it once in a while.  I just didn't like how the programmer(s) did the sounds in the game.  Every time you walked across a part of the burger the music would start over.  That did get annoying pretty quick.  Treasure Island and Parsec are fun games and I have been trying to locate a TI Invaders.  I don't know much of what games are good for the system.

 

Putting the TI on the internet sounds like a cool idea.  I've often wondered how an obsolete (for lack of a better word) computer would perform with modern internet connections...namely an Atari machine.  This is one product that I might have to see in action before purchasing.  Still cool to see, though.

Sure, I use one of these... gallery_35324_1072_530587.gif   ... a Lantronix UDS-10

I have a blog on another site that goes into great detail on this device.  << CLICK HERE >>
