Same here - I should decide not to buy any computers more often!

Not so lucky - doesn't work. Turn it on and it clicks twice and whines
like its gonna blow a cap. Next weekend's project I guess...

I was sure they were out there as the expansion boxes all had disk drives
(I think) but I've never even seen an ad for commercially produced disk
software for the TI.

The sticker has been ripped off but there is a number imprinted inside
that says 1016. I'm guessing that might be the model number for a 16k
module for the T/S 1000?
