Shots of my CoCo 3 system

Here are some shots of my "CoCo" (Radio Shack Color Computer Model 3) that I finally got set up again for the n-teenth time. It's been a while since I have really used the CoCo, but now that I have a dedicated spot for it, I am going to dive in and have fun with it.

Here's a shot of the complete system. Note the rats nest of cables from some other systems.

This isn't the intended use for a monitor stand, but I didn't feel safe given the weight of the monitor so I decided to use it to get the disk drives, speakers, and VGA Converter Box out of the way.

And if you are a CoCo enthusiast you may appreciate the "CoCo Cat" in the picture! :-)

Feel free to leave a comment! Cheers ~ Jim

BBC old computer quiz.

I happened to catch this while scanning Digg, and thought I would share it with you.

Click on the link below to access the BBC Midweek Quiz on Old Computers. Once you are done, post your score in the comments.

I am ashamed to admit it, but I only got 6 out of 10. It's a pity that they didn't list the Radio Shack Color Computer.
