Hi. My in-laws dug up a TI 99/4A home computer (literally dug up
out of the dusty dungeon!) for my daughter (8 yrs. old) to use.
What I need to know is if there is still a source for the
plug in ROM modules that it uses. I'd especially like ones 
for math (+,-,*,/) and spelling, but any kind will do. Otherwise
it just sits around, and I don't feel like fighting with a cassette
recorder/player. A far cry from a Symbolics! 

If you know of any promising leads (including selling your own stuff)
please let me know. Thanks.

Last time I checked, Triton was still selling ROM cartridges for
the TI99/4A.  Their address is:

	Triton Products Company
	PO Box 8123
	San Francisco, CA  94128
	1-800-227-6900

Their christmas sales brochure claims they can be reached Monday-Friday
6AM - 6PM, Saturday 9AM - 4PM Pacific time.

All the usual disclaimers apply of course.  I'm just quoting from their
sales brochure.....

Their latest product is the Triton Turbo XT that turns your TI

Somebody already mentioned Triton, the other mail order house still committed
to the TI 99/4a is Tenex:

Tenex Computer Express
P.O. Box 6578
South Bend, IN 46660
219-259-7051

What seems like a couple of centuries ago, I bought an Expansion Chassies and
Floppy drive from them and was quite satisfied with their service.

What's really amusing is that they are now advertising a Myarc 99/4a compatible
computer board that plugs into the expansion chassies, has a TI9995 processor,
double resolution video chip, a real keyboard and runs 2-3 times as fast.  This
is where TI could have been years ago if the had had their act together and more
realistic perceptions of the home computer market.
