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.
