We need to be thankful that early pioneers of the coco3 such as yourself are still active in  our community. The wealth of knowledge that comes with hands on experience is priceless

On further reflection, I can give a few more details.  At the time I was
going from an early copy of what later became the service manual, which
I believe was in the form of a loose leaf notebook, which I borrowed
from Dale Lear, who had one of the early Coco3s before they were even
announced.  Funny story... Dale contacted Falsoft asking if they wanted
us to write articles for Rainbow and they politely demurred, until he
mentioned that he had one of the few Coco3s that existed at the time.
Suddenly the answer became, "Yes, please."  Dale usually did the
programming and I did the writing for our articles.
