Turns out the author replied to a comment I left on the TechRepublic site -
I had noted something about the 'soldered' keyboard ribbon and the 'DOA': he
admits that probably the 'gunk' made him think the thing was indeed
soldered, and within the reply he advanced they had tried the CoCo on a real
TV and nothing came up on the screen...

Anyway, perhaps the 'cracking-open' of vintage computing technology should
be left to those who 'digg it' in its truest form. :-)

I wonder how the crack-open of the C=64 is going to turn out...
