For the past 2 years my little recording studio was doing well and growing. It had gotten to the point that I was busy enough that we needed a new (bigger) building and we had just had a nice steel building erected and were waiting on finances to pour the concrete floor and get started with the interior.
During these two years, I've had to pack up my Coco stuff to make room in the very small building I was using. I had hopes that I would set up a special area in my new building for all my Coco gear so I could get back into some programming... mainly OS-9 C.
Sadly, this was not to be. Not only did hurricane Florence take my home (under 8 foot of water), but it took my hopes of my new studio as well as all my Coco gear with the exception of a few pieces that residing in boxes up high on shelves.
For the last 3 months, my wife and I have been living in one of the Sunday school rooms in a local church along with 4 other families occupying other rooms. Graciously, my daughter and her husband have offered to convert their very large garage into an apartment for us to live in. In moving here to Fayetteville, NC from Wilmington, NC, I am losing my client base for the studio and will have to start all over again, not to mention building a new studio and acquiring new gear.
What does all this have to do with the OS-9 C Compiler? Well, the last thing I was doing before my studio got busy and left me no time for my Coco, was working on going through all the variations of the C compiler components and figuring out what worked and what didn't and compile a guide to using the compiler system with the latest, fastest, and best of the components. There's even a beginning of a webpage I started on my site that was to house the results, but things got really busy in the studio and I never got far.
Now that I seem to have a lot of time to kill until I can get the studio going in a new town, I'll be working on Coco related stuff again, first being getting the C Compiler straightened out and packaged up nice and neat.
I'm still traveling back and forth between Fayetteville & Wilmington (2 hour drive) to clean out and demolish my home & studio and salvaging what can still be used, so on the days I'm here in Fayetteville, I'll be messing with Coco stuff, and after I wind things up in Wilmington, I'll be doing lots of work with my Cocos again.
So give me a few weeks and I'll be working on getting the C compiler straightened out and repackaged.
