[Coco] Entire OT: Me and mine

Remind me never to announce that I'm starting a project until I'm
finished with it ;)

In my time, I have started, but not completed, too many projects (most
not CoCo related) to keep track of. There is simply too much in Real
Life <tm> to deal with to get all of my projects done. The difference
between James and I are that I have never announced a project. I guess
my point is, for most of us, if not all - even the ones who make a
little money (probably not enough to recover development costs) from
this, the CoCo is a hobby. I would love to see James post what he has
so far before going into lurk mode, but I do not begrudge him if he
does not.
