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)

Despite what it says in some parts of the Color Computer Disc manual, the SAVEM command which is used to save machine language program. will NOT work if you use hexadecimal numbers.
Tandy's ·Color Computer Disc System' manual, on page 61, says that, just as in the tape versions, you must specify starting, ending and execute addresses in order to save machine language programs. It then adds: "Use the hexadecimal numbers for all these addresses."
Don't do it that way. It just won't work. Nor will it work if you use the "&H" prefix to decimal numbers, either. Just use the addresses in plain old, ordinary, run-of-the-mill decimal numbers (base 10 for the technically-minded).
This tidbit should save you quite of a bit of time and a lot of frustration.
