## FWIW; I have all on a power strip.  I turn off the CoCo then the power
strip.  Reverse to boot, although I wait for the hard drives to spin up
before turning on the CoCo.

## Rub them with a pencil eraser first, then a lint free cloth with
denatured alcohol.  If they are "gold" plated, just clean them with the lint
free cloth with denatured alcohol.

## It works for me.  My GF has ME on her machine.  It's been a PITA, but,
she's enamored with the thumbnails for her photo folders.  They also made a
half-hearted attempt to hide DOS under ME.  It's there, just a bit harder to
get to.
