Hello Fedor !
What a surprise to find another coco user in Denmark and in Belgium
(Brussels), where I live ...!!
It seems that you both have a Coco 3 but, in my mind, I thought that
this model has never
been sold in Europe. Is it right ? If I'm wrong, is this a PAL model ?
And what about
the frequency of the power supply ? (it's different than in the US).
Maybe was it sold in the
Netherlands but , as far as I remember, It has never been sold in Belgium.
Anyway, I'll try to get in touch with Philippe Hennebert too ...
You can put my reference on your web page :
My hardware is simple :
1 Coco 1 32K Extended Basic + 1 dead Floppy Drive + 1 Color Graphic
I'm looking for a Coco 3 in order to use OS-9, FLEX and the extended
of the model 3 ( ah 80 columns !!! :-) ). I don't know OS-9 and FLEX but
I've read a lot
of good reviews about them ...
I'm also looking for Pascal and C compiler (Cartridge / Disk) and 6809E
'cause I'd like to "play" again with theses languages ...
I've also used a Coco 2 at school but it seems that it was a small
upgrade of the Coco 1 --> not so interesting
as the Coco 3 ...
Kind Regards (that's what the Flemishs says ... :-) )
