As a 12-year old back in 1982, the Texas Instruments TI-99/4A was my first computer and by far the most amazing thing I owned. At that time in the early 1980's there was growing competition in the UK home computer market between machines such as the Commodore VIC-20, Sinclair Spectrum, BBC Micro, Dragon 32, TRS-80 and others. The TI99 was more expensive than many of its rivals, but it was this machine that I always went for in our local computer shop as they had one on display playing Parsec (complete with speech synthesiser), which put it in a different league altogether! My obsession with that display TI99 didn't go un-noticed by my Dad, who eventually purchased one for the family - who never got a look in once I got my hands on it. His decision to go for the TI99 may also have been influenced during his time spent working in the US, where this machine was really popular and promoted on prime-time TV. Within a few months of owning a TI, I had become a BASIC programmer and was selling my own games on cassette by mail order through the classified sections of various home computer magazines.

This website is a showcase of my own TI99 stuff along with a list of TI-related resources that are worth a visit. I'm not a collector (honest!) just keen to keep my TI99 memories alive and kicking. Fortunately the machine enjoys an active after-life in the world of vintage & retro computing with some excellent discussion forums, social media groups and TI99 owner sites. Twitter feed @TI99Stuff for this site is also active for all things TI99 related. You can contact me there!
