I have been throwing that idea around also Mark,
We really need to get a new disk controller that will work with Modern
floppies, but even that life span in sloly comming to an end. Most new
pre-built computers don't even have a floppy drive any more. With the 5 1/4
drives becoming more and more rare, we all should get together and come up
with a solution.
Just a thought occured to me the other day (Switching topics now). Nobody
likes to use tape drives anymore, how viable would it be to use like a
"colorado back up tape drive" to store all the old cassete programs. I know
most people just put them on floppies now, but I was just trying to think of
a way to use some older and abundant technology for use on the CoCo in a new
way. Once I get ether the IDE controler or the superboard, I will be hooking
up a zip drive and using that.
