I myself have always been an isolated coco-nut. I could rarely afford to buy
software, and when I could RS was a lot closer than mail-order. All my friends
with computers had either Commies or Model I/III/4's. I never even found
bit.listerv.coco or the online CoCo community until late '99.

Yeah, I'm not crazy about that either. That's why I have a >500KB hosts file to
eliminate a large chunk of web advertising, including pop-ups. 

I really do like the type of forum you've set up on CoCo3.com, but people seem
to think that posting to more than one place results in "splintering" those of
us that are active. To me that's like saying that watering two trees means
neither one will get enough water. *shrug* 

I guess technically, the CoCo's been dead for over 10 years now so... Long Live
the CoCo!
