Actually, comp.sys.m6809 was often cross-posted to with Coco postings 
relating to 6809 assembly programming, peripherals, and other things that weren't 
strictly Coco (like how to beat Dod :-).  At least I know this was the case way 
back before there were any "bit" newsgroups.

I would guess that most of our current Coco traffic (new OS-9 versions, 
emulators) would be welcome there.  As for Coco I/O addresses, well, we'd maybe 
have to skip some GIMIX hardware data ourselves.

As for a new gmane Coco newsgroup, I figure I could call in on my ISP, remain 
online, then run raw IE and point it at the gmane server.  But in general I 
wold stick to the email reflectors like maltedmedia.  --Mike K.
