Sitenotice: 11/29/2018: The wiki is back. It turns out, some anti-virus product on my web server had an issue with the latest version of PHP. My server techs have resolved this issue, and things should be working again. During the investigation, I did restore to a backup from September. There is a chance that any changes done since then were lost, but I do not recall any edits. --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)

CoCoFEST! Facts

  • Allen Huffman authored "Fest Reports" for the great majority of these CoCoFESTs, and even them for sale in a book called "CoCoFEST Chronicles."
  • From 1992 to 2004, every CoCoFEST was held in the same convention room at the exact same hotel, though the hotel changed names from time to time. The 2005 CoCoFEST, however, was moved across the highway to a larger and more luxurious accomodation. The former hotel is no longer a hotel.
  • The 2005 CoCoFEST was the first CoCo Fest to have wireless Internet access available throughout the fest floor.
