I can now develop for my Arduino... on my CHIP. :-)

It's fun to see how nowadays you can have a $8 computer with Wi-Fi, that does (maybe more slowly) what a normal computer does. Raspberry Pi Zero would also be interesting, if they did have a minimum stock allowing a decent number of people to buy it. Also Orange Pi has developed several boards around $10 (One, PC and the Wi-Fi OPI-Lite, that we'll soon feature here on Google+). Nobody would have thought of this five years ago. I remember that before Raspberry Pi, the only development boards available were about $150, and had very limited power. But, honestly, I wouldn't have expected these boards to be so cheap. And some people built clusters with big quantities of these boards. Impressive.

X at NTSC. Man oh man I haven't seen X at such a low resolution since I gave up trying to run it on my 386sx-16.

OTOH at least the CHIP can keep up with X. :-)

Help! Network goodie needs power supply!

So, I salvaged this: Xircom EE10BU external Ethernet adapter. I don't know if it works and I can't test it without a power supply. And I can't find anything that says what power supply it needs. Please help!

It probably wants 12v. You could open it up and look at the power circuit.

For the TRS-80 Model 100.
 
Amazingly a new release of ROG, the TRS-80 Model 100 roguelike game, less than a month after the last!

For the fist time ever I got Internet feedback about ROG and this resulted in a fix to a long-standing "documented feature": On every dungeon level, it is possible to move from staircase to staircase. Previously this was guaranteed only on Level 1.

The new version can be downloaded from sdc or my personal library on http://club100.org

I have a roguelike game for the TRS-80 Model 100! Give it a try!
 
I am pleased to announce the February 2016 release of ROG, the Model 100 roguelike game!

This release is something of a roll back. After spending most of a decade trying to balance this game's monsters, I said "No, you know what? Let's throw a huge random factor into monster generation. " Well I have come to my senses: extra weak monsters cheat the player out of XP and extra powerful ones (at least with no warning about their extra strength) are just cheap. So I'm not doing that anymore.

Get the game at my webpage or my "personal library" at club100.org

I've discovered C.H.I.P.! This thing is awesome! I mean, the computer is dwarfed by the mouse!

Get C.H.I.P.. C.H.I.P. does computer things! Surf the web over WiFi, play games with a Bluetooth controller, and save your files to C.H.I.P.'s onboard storage. C.H.I.P. is made for making too! Program your project on C.H.I.P. and pop C.H.I.P. into your project!
