Sitenotice: 11/29/2018: The wiki is back. It turns out, some anti-virus product on my web server had an issue with the latest version of PHP. My server techs have resolved this issue, and things should be working again. During the investigation, I did restore to a backup from September. There is a chance that any changes done since then were lost, but I do not recall any edits. --OS-9 Al
8/30/2016: Massive re-work is being done on the InfoBox Templates. Read that page to keep up with the plan for that, and adding better keyword tags (categories) to all the pages. --OS-9 Al (talk) 15:28, 31 August 2016 (CDT)

The TRS-80 CCR-81 was a cassette player and recorder from Radio Shack. The "CCR" in the name stood for Computer Cassette Recorder. While a fully functioning audiocassette player and recorder, the CCR-81 was also a computer data input/output device.
Radio Shack produced few software titles on tape, preferring its proprietary Program Pak cartridge-based system, but a wide variety of third-party developers released software on tape as a standard format. Usually the price for a program was the same whether on tape or disk, but the cost of the drive hardware was much higher for a disk drive.
Like many tape recorders of the day, the CCR-81 was a full-sized desktop model, with a large speaker, intended to permit multiple users around a table, such as participants in a business meeting, to hear the sound. It was followed up by the much smaller CCR-82.
