:-) If yo are curious as to what went on during this year's CoCoFEST!, Steve, known on YouTube as the Original Gamer Stevie Strow, took lots of video and posted it to his channel. You can see the list of videos here

Have a good weekend! Salvador

Hi Salvador,

Thanks for the warm welcome and the invite to the CoCoFest.  I’ve heard about it through the years and I hear about it all the time while listening tot he CoCoCrew podcasts (which is awesome!)
I live in Toronto, so it would take me about a 9 hour hour drive to Chicago.  Not too bad…  I’ll give it some thought and see as the time gets closer.


What part of Canada are you from? I am currently residing near Chicago, Illinois.
" I used to get so excited when the latest Rainbow magazine came out"
Oh yeah! Same here. I was residing in Mexico at the time and my only source for CoCo information was the Rainbow. Previously I had been subscribed to the Color Computer Magazine, but the publisher ended the magazine and transferred remaining credit to the Rainbow. It used to cost around $60USD annually and that was a lot of money for me, taking into account the difference in economies.
Sometimes my family (and I) would visit the US and I would make a trip to the local mall Radio Shack with religious fervor. As others, I too got sucked into the black hole known as the IBM PC. I was not able to sell my 64K CoCo 1 as most businesses in Mexico used Apple IIs, quickly moving on to IBM PCs or compatibles. I still have the CoCo 1, but it now sits quietly at my place of residence in Mexico while I now live in the U.S. I saw the CoCo 2 and 3 come and go. Unfortunately, getting a computer into Mexico was difficult at best, although my primary stopping point was their cost.
Again, welcome to the group. If you are mobile (time, physical, and financial wise) and want to spend some quality time with other CoCo Nutz, the annual CocoFEST! is this coming April. Depending on what part of Canada you live in, you might not be too far :-). Salvador
