Interview with Ian Mavric, TRS-80 Recycler
This is an interview-only episode of Floppy Days. I was able to catch up with someone well-known in the TRS-80 community, Mr. Ian Mavric, or Mav for short. Mav bills himself as a TRS-80 recycler who also sells a lot of upgrades for the TRS-80 line of computers, including the FreHD, hi-res boards, the Quinnterface and others. He’s also a member of the TRS-80 Trash Talk Podcast and writes for the TRS8BIT newsletter. Mav is very active in the TRS-80 community and I was very happy to be able to sit down with him and talk about everything in which he’s involved.
