amusing things seen at the hamfest

Look at that neat old TRS-80 with a GREEN SCREEN! 


Can you believe I did NOT buy this for only a dollar?  That’s not the direction I want to take my collection.  Still cool though.


  1. I still peruse eBay for TRS 80s, mainly the Model 100 (which is a primitive laptop). I am quite impressed. For a dollar, I'd be hard-pressed not to bring it home, even if I didn't know what it was.

    That's an adding machine, yes?

  2. Heh, I used my Tandy 200 during Nano last November. Can't beat an instant-on writing machine that lives for a week or more of periodic use on 4 AA batteries.

    I also have my TRS-80 Model 4P, still functional in my storeroom. It's the even older whitescreen model, with a pair of 170kb drives. I can't say I have any use for it now that I converted the BASIC program it was running for the past 10 years to Javascript (an ink-mixing program for printing inks). Anyone want to trade me a typewriter for it? :D

  3. They wanted $200 for the TRS-80. And I had the same reaction to Frogger!


Let me know if capcha comes back. Thanks for commenting.
