The TI-99/4A - History, with Jim Fetzner and Mark Wills

This is the second in a multi-part series on the TI-99/4A computer.  For this history segment, I was lucky enough to find a couple of people who have an incredible history with the TI-99, Jim Fetzner and Mark Wills.  Jim has an extensive, multilingual library of all things TI and possesses some very interesting hardware items related to the TI-99.  Mark is the author of TurboForth for the TI-99/4A and has been involved in the TI-99/4A scene pretty much since 1983.  He’s also English, living in the UK, so he has a rather British take on the home computer wars.  I will cover TI-99 history with the help of these two gentlemen.  I think you will find this very interesting!

Excellent podcast, really liked those TI-99 related interviews and also nice to hear the voices of Jim Fetzner and Mark Wills. I put a TI-99/4A beginners guide video on Youtube where I also pointed to this podcast and I am sure people will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed listening to it. Greetings from Austria, Roland.
