Nice site. I'm not sure about that computer since the picture is
dark and grainy. Also, thanks for referencing coco3.com from the
banner, but it leads to chat.coco3.com which I thought I had
disabled. Clicking the link leads to a chat-only page without the
site framework. If you could, please change the link URL to
As for the Asimov awards... as I mentioned in an earlier post, I
would submit something but I like the idea of letting newbies or
progressing programmers compete as it also helps motivate others to
bring us some new cool stuff to the CoCo.
I do have a new game coming out for 2008, probably in a week, but
there are details pending. Also, not everyone can download a .dsk
image or .bin file and write their own floppy for their real
CoCo. If someone among us has the resources and time to produce a
5.25" or 3.5" SSDD floppy on-demand for anybody requesting such, and
mail it to that customer using an economy mailer and postage, please
contact me and we can talk about fees.
I plan to announce this new CoCo 3 game in the CoCo Cafe tomorrow
night (New Years Eve) if I can get enough decent screenshots made of
the current work. It's 90% complete with progress moving at the
speed of light. :)
