I realize that this is an ATARI newsgroup, not one for strange calculators,
but I think that a TI port of Oystron would be pretty cool. While I've hit the
subject, has anyone given any thought to a Z80 calculator (ie., entire TI
series) port of Stella, or a calculator 2600 emulator at all? I realize that
it would be (ahem) more difficult to do, but if anyone is willing to
collaborate on development, get in touch with me. (JArti1@xxxxxxx)
