Is the CoCoSDC worthwhile? Or DriveWire? Or the ability to connect to VGA or HDMI? No one needs a CoCo, or any of these things. So what! We have them and get enjoyment out of using them, and the camaraderie this hobby engenders. That's reason enough.
The Magic here is, of course, that the hard part has already been done. Now we just need some software support, which could be done in BASIC.
When I get recovered from my "convention crud" cold, I have to update the CoCoWiFi firmware to the latest, and then finish up on SirSound. Once the hardware boards for each are available, I’ll start working on some internet utilities.
I am hoping that, by next year's CoCoFEST (if there is one), we can finally eliminate "Sneaker Net" as a CoCo supported protocol.
