Yea, Let's Grid Coco's....Can we first network them! If I remember
right on of the SCSI interfaces on the Coco could be set to any SCSI
address ID where it was possible to connect 1 drive to 6 CoCo's and if
one was to write drivers for each CoCo to be a SCSI device one might be
possible to share Ram Drives and/or data modules...maybe pipe data
between nodes. Oh yea this would only work under OS-9.
Well, I haven't thought this though much, so feel free to "I have no clue"
