Re: [midatlanticretro] Re: Sinclair people out there?
- I have a tape duplication machine, but it only works with like tapes (same exact type type). It's not easy to simply dub a tape into a wav file, but I assume that someone has a system for this somewhere.BillIn a message dated 10/4/2005 8:09:38 AM Eastern Daylight Time, relayer@... writes:
I'm afraid I don't have any tapes, but I do have a couple TS1000's
that I'd like to put to use.
Is there a tape repository available for these machines? I know we
have digital tape backups of a lot of early 80's computers, but I
don't know of any for the TS1000/ZX81 series.
Just an idea.... Would it be too impractical to convert the tapes to
.wav/.mp3/.ogg format to play back from a portable player? My Palm
Zire plays audio files and it would be great to hook that up to my
classic computers to load tape data. Heck, I'd be glad to host the
files on my server if people would use them.
I guess I could start the ball rolling. I have a few CoCo tapes and a
couple TI-99 tapes I can convert. I'll have to dig them out from where
they're being stored (and then cross my fingers that they work).

I'm not quite sure how this helps, but there is a T/S1000 program archive at
http://www.vavasour.ca/jeff/ts1000/. This site is also an emulator that runs
right in the browser, in case those who don't have their own 1000 are jealous
and want to play along. I found this by typing 'timex 1000 programs' into
Yahoo search. There were many other results in the list.
