Picture of a CoCo 3Welcome to my web page. The Tandy Color Computer 3 may well be the ultimate hobby computer. It's easy to program, easily interfaces with the real world (It has 4 analog inputs, 1 analog output, and numerous digital inputs and outputs built-in), and it's easy to create your own hardware. I've put up a few of my own programs, projects, information, and links to other people's CoCo pages. This page is still small but there are still things I want to add later. We need to support our CoCo as much as possible these days - If you know (or maintain) any neat CoCo web pages, don't hesitate to let me know via the feedback option at the bottom of this page.
