That also would have been nice to know about, particularly if the src was 
still available and I could build it for linux. wine can't access hardware, 
so the executable probaly wouldn't be much good.

My inability to run an editor on a minicom screen sucks.  OTOH, I suspect 
this may be less resource intensive on the coco end of the wire, so I am 
rather enthusiastic.  I don't have it running yet of course, I am just now 
bringing a new ubuntu 10.04-4 LTS 32 bit install to life, working on my web 
page next, which is not up yet.

Cheers, Gene
