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)

If you are looking for information or help with the Tandy/Radio Shack TRS-80 Color Computer (CoCo), here is where to start.
I want to save my old CoCo software
If you have old Color Computer software on cassette tapes or floppy disk, you can get this software copied over to a PC/Mac/Linux machine and run it in an emulator. Details to be added.
I want to get rid of my old CoCo stuff
If you have old CoCo hardware or software that you need to get rid of, you should e-mail the Color Computer mailing list. Details to be added.
- E-mail hundreds of CoCo users on the CoCo mailing list.
I want to get my CoCo running again
If you are trying to get a CoCo running again, and need help or replacement parts, here are some resources. Details to be added.
- The DriveWire project allows you to use a serial cable to hook a CoCo to a host PC/Mac/Linux machine and use it as a remote disk system. Current DriveWare allows the CoCo to print to a virtual printer on the PC, copy files to/from disk images on the PC, and even play MIDI music files through the PC. There is also support for internet access, allowing a terminal program on the CoCo to "dial" out to remote internet systems. And it's FREE.
- Cloud-9 produces hardware add ons for the CoCo, including SCSI/IDE/compact flash hard drive interfaces, PS/2 keyboard interfaces, memory updates, and much more. They also offer replacement DISK BASIC ROMs that support hard drive access, or remote DriveWire access through BASIC.
