I was planning on sharing some info here once some things are available for
purchase, but here is a preview of what is in the pipeline:

* Tandy joystick -> USB adapter so you can use your vintage joysticks with
emulators, etc.
* Atari/Sega -> Tandy joystick adapter cable. Simple inline conversion
cable for one joystick. I said on Facebook I wasn't going to build these
but I decided to run a few.
* Coco MIDI cartridge. Compatible with the original Rulaford/Glenside/etc.
carts and as far as I can tell, supported by all Coco software that
supports MIDI.
* 64K SRAM upgrade daughterboard for later model Coco 2's.
* 64K upgrade circuit for E-board Coco 1's. Replaces the mess of jumper
wires normally used to do this with a plug-in, solder free board. Doesn't
include RAM.

Available "real soon now". Except perhaps the Tandy joystick -> USB adapter
for which I still have quite a bit of software work I want to do before
releasing. I'll send out pricing once things are available.
