I am an ex-preacher so get ready 8-).
Do what you feel you have to do, but isloating yourself is self defeating. I
do not agree with everything I see on any mailist either and yes folks can be
be very opinionated... especially developers. You have to remember the only
difference between software/hardware developers and artists is the medium. I
have never met a more touchy-opinionated group than artists and musicians. You
and all others on this list have a lot to contribute. I only WISH I had half
the time some folks here have to develope on the CoCo. Hummm... maybe I better
be careful of what I wish for 8-]. You and all the others make up the family.
Like families, there WILL not always be agreement nor are the accolaldes
<<sp?> going to be handed out as they ought. Like the rest of the world, there
will ALWAYS be folks here who think their way is better and you are a jerk if
you think differently. I saw it in the discussions as to why USB should or
should not be implemented on the CoCo, as well as HTML, as well as networking,
as well as.... well you get the picture. But who cares? In the end guys such
as yourself, Boisy, Mark, Roy, Roger, Gene, etc keep trying, developing, and
computing. God bless you! Others have taken the bull by the horns and
commentted a tremendous amount of time and energy archiving CoCo magazines and
any other documentation that is fast fading away. Again GOD BLESS YOU ALL! It
is folks like you that have kept all those poor ole CoCos out of the trash
heaps, and kept folks like me coming back for more. So keep CoCo'ing and have
fun with it. Your site is great and keep developing it, but do it for the
right reasons. I like it and plan to visit it more, although I am not a
