I generally found cassette operations on the Color Computer to be quite 
reliable, especially in comparison to the Model One I started with.  And 
that's using the same CTR-41 included with the Mod One.  Which I didn't get 
involved with until my USAF days were done in 1978.  Did spend a month at 
Kadena in Mar/Apr 1977, came back with a hundred pounds or so of manga.

I think boys might benefit from owning a Barbie doll; every young man
should understand what an expensive proposition it is to cohabitate with
a narcissistic woman built like a stripper.  --  Tony Woodlief
