That was me, and I was being sarcastic.  The CoCo was (and still is)
quite capable of real work, not that anybody ever convinced Tandy of
this... :-(

And, man, I'd love to get my hands on some of the homebrewed hardware,
especially Boyle's 8-port serial cards. Think about it a moment: A
CoCo with 8 serial ports.  A boy can dream.

Heh, don't mind me, I've got a serious weakness for computers with
*lots* of serial ports, and I'm going to go sit in the corner and
drool for a while. ;-)
