I'll be 34 in a few days. My parents first bought us a TRS-80 Model III.
Later a CoCo 2. I later bought myself a CoCo 3 and an Atari ST around the
time that they came out. The ST was great - it was more powerful yet in
other ways extremely similar to the CoCo 3, but it didn't quite have the
same kind of attraction for experimentation as the CoCo 3 had. I eventually
stopped using the Atari, but never gave up the CoCo.
I was also determined to make the CoCo 3 do some cool stuff. If the Atari
could do it, I figured, so could the CoCo! The more impossible people
perceived an idea to be, the better :)
