Some interesting things about the TI99/4a is it only has 256 bytes of system ram. Your programs are shifted over to video ram via some crazy 16bit/8bit voodoo. The BASIC interpreter is written is GPL and it runs under that. So your actually doing double interpretation when you run a basic program. Oh and its an old 16bit mini computer CPU TMS9900. Parts of the machine are 16 bit, other parts 8. 🤔

My first TI machine. I know nothing of these other then they have a really weird architecture. This one is going to be a little harder to get on the network since there is no RS232 at all on these.

I like how the “lower case” is just smaller upper case letters 😎
