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)

Have been using a Coco since 1981, with one of the original 4K battlehip grey models (a "D" board"). Placed in couple of Rainbow magazines programming contests (1 each in Adventure and Simulation contests). I authored a fair number of RS-DOS, and later, OS-9/NitrIOS9 programs, and was one of the original 3 co-authors of NitrOS9 itself (along with Bill Nobel and Wes Gale). I also did some updates, etc. like Gshell 1.26, the PLAY command (with true stereo support), the PROC command with extended support for BASIC09, CCUNZIP, and others I can't remember off the top of my head. I also helped develop drivers for the TC-9 Coco clone from Frank Hogg, and for the Glenside IDE controller.

   Currently, my Coco's and TC-9 are boxed up, but I still try to contribute to the community by staying active on the Coco lists, and with my Coco games webapge at:
