Re: [M100] Raspberry Pi as TPDD

You would think so. But bog standard Pi images corrupt if you pull power even if you're not doing anything. I think the main reason is that Linux updates a "last accessed" time stamp. So even if you're not writing to it and even if it's a system file it may still write to the disk. But you can

Should work. Laddiealpha has more features but if all else fails DLPlus will work. One interesting thing about DLPlus is it's based on DL. The original code had login prompt built in. I'm not sure if I kept it working since I didn't know what it was there for. But I think it might allow it to

I've put a new version of LaddieAlpha.EXE up at bitchin100.com for testing http://bitchin100.com/files/linux/LaddieAlpha.EXE This version can listen on a TCP socket. For example: .\LaddieAlpha.EXE tcp://192.168.1.103:8085 6 means, instead of a COM port, listen on IP address 192.168.1.103, port

Oh! That makes sense. It seemed to be sending a lot if garbage. But if it had switched to 9600 that explains a lot. Yeah I'd be interested in a new version if you make one. -- John.

Problems can be fun. But solved problems have their positive attributes too. LaddieAlpha works fine on OSX! I've tested it, and I support it. So if you have trouble getting it working just ask on the list. Dependencies are: Mono A loaded TPDD client. Best bet: A REX unit running TS-DOS, or

Thanks! Actually Steven I think this is the same seller as I saw on Amazon UK. It seems in the US he just advertises the cables for specific devices instead of by specification. I'll write to the seller and see if the exact 6v negative polarity 5.5mm/2.1mm cable can be purchased. -- John.
