Probably NOT a good idea to post your phone number on a public
message on a Yahoo! Group...
I'm actually OK now.
A friend came last night, and we desoldered the processor on my Coco
III and tried a 6809 from a Coco II. The Coco III is working now,
but I need to get a 68B09 Chip, since the 6809 chip in the Coco II
probably won't run the high speed poke on a Coco III.
We also got my Disk System working and found my masters of the Coco
Graphics Designer Disks.
I just have to duplicate the manuals and disks and I'll be ready to
I'm going to use Marty Goodman's FastCopy program (I think that's
what it's called). I have two more 360k Drives, and once I case them
up, I can use those to duplicate discs fast!
You put the master in 0, and blanks in 1,2, & 3 and hit enter, and
it makes 3 copies at a time!
My Coco III is only 128k, so I'll have to find the 512k adapter I
have hiding here somewhere...
