8/24/2016: MediaWiki software and PHP version updated. Please let me know if you find any problems.. Also, extensive Template cleanup is in progress based on new things I have learned on another wiki project. I will update the Help files when I get it all done. --OS-9 Al

8/30/2016: Massive re-work is being done on the InfoBox Templates. Read that page to keep up with the plan for that, and adding better keyword tags (categories) to all the pages. --OS-9 Al (talk) 15:28, 31 August 2016 (CDT)

If someone with Wiki experience wants to find an appropriate template for this, please do so. Ideally this would be a timeline of significant events in CoCo history, including introduction of various models and peripherals. It would also be nice to list specific new discoveries (like when the CoCo 3 prototype was first displayed in public, or when the GLOOM demo or Donkey Kong port came out).

A good starting point might be old Radio Shack catalogs, noting what items were announced each year.
