Googling 'Todd Keeton (Keaton?)' a few years back brought up stories about a Todd Keeton who ran some kind of gambling machine scam, got caught, and committed suicide, IIRC. Hoping that wasn't the same Todd Keeton. Anyone know if that's the case?

What everyone in this thread seems to have forgotten is that VCC is a Coco3 
emulator. The Coco3 does NOT switch artifact colors at random on a RESET! That 
is the way the Coco1 and Coco2 worked.

The Coco3 owner's manual indicates:

"                                IMPORTANT NOTE

If your are using software that requires the alternate color set, select this 
color set by pressing down the F1 key during power up."

VCC follows this requirement.
