I'm way behind on the CoCo news front, so it's time to surf the sites and do another round up! Hang on... here we go....
Did I mention the new gallery feature at coco3.com? Probably, but if not, I just did. Great for browsing and be sure to hop in there make your own! I just posted a few more pics of my CoCo systems and my growing army of CoCo nuts in training (okay, so this is probably the whole army, according to my wife, but at least it's a start). Also, at coco3.com, under the Articles tab, is a wicked new article by Mathew Potter on adding 512K RAM to a CoCo3. And get this... it's completely wire wrapped! I don't understand half of it, but it is a very, very cool lloking project. :)
On a similar subject, Roger Taylor of coco3.com (maltedmedia list and Roger Taylor Software) is working on a neat project that will allow transfering files between the CoCo and PC. There should be a post about the project on the maltedmedia list, so be sure to check in there for details. I'm about 200 digests behind on that list at the moment, so I'll post more about this project as it progress and information becomes available. Very exciting, though.
Glen, at the CoCo Lounge, has acquired and is steadily posting a rather impressive collection of CoCo Goodness up for sale in his online store. He also dropped the price on many tapes and disks. Get in there quick and get it while the gettin's good. :)
The venerable Glenside Color Computer Club has info up on the next Chicago CoCo Fest. It'll be held April 29th & 30th. (The info's been up for awhile, actually, and I have no idea why I keep forgetting the mention.) This year celebrates the 20th year of the CoCo 3! Should be quite a party!
Moby games now does CoCo! This is a cool site to browse and is being put together with the help of CoCo game guru L. Curtis Boyle of the CoCo Games List (http://nitros9.stg.net/coco_game_list.html). It's neat because you can compare screen shots and game info of many of the games with other systems such as the Atari 8-bits, the Commodore, Apple, TI 99/4A and others. And yes, the CoCo holds up quite well and kicks buttocks over the rest of the system on many games. Definately a site to spend a little time on.
The March edition of The CoCo Collector is available. It's a doosy. February saw a lot of action on the vintage CoCo sales front. And it's still rolling along! Also, we're celebrating the first full year of the CoCo Price Guide this month. Nothing special planned, but I might make cupcakes or something...
