Welcome to episode 52 of the Floppy Days Podcast where we talk about our beloved old computers like some guys talk about their old cars. I want to thank Michael Glaser for providing his thoughts and memories of the TI-99 computer.  No, this hasn’t suddenly turned into a TI-99 podcast.  However, this IS the fourth in a series of what now will be 5 episodes on the TI-99/4A home computer.  There just turned out to be so much material on this very interesting machine and so much interest in the community, that this turned out to be quite an extended series.  Having already covered history and technical topics on previous episodes, I had originally intended this episode to cover everything from software and magazines to Web sites, but by the time my co-hosts and I had gotten through the material it turned out to be over 2 hours of audio and I decided to break it into 2 parts.  This episode will cover TI-99 software, books, magazines, ads and user groups while the next one will cover emulation and Web sites.  My very special co-hosts for this episode are two more luminaries in the TI-99 community: Chris Schneider, who produces the SHIFT838 newsletter and Rich Polivka, who manages the popular 99er.net Web site.  They provide a very interesting perspective on the TI-99 and I think you will enjoy this show.
