Grant Leighty had the Newbie question of the week; which method of purchasing real CoCo hardware to each of us prefer?

Richard Lorbieski talked about about the risks of purchasing TRS-80 "model X" machines via mail, and some services he'll offer at Tandy Assembly.

Ron Delvaux treated us to an extended version of Ron's Garage including a Tandy Hard Drive controller, and lots of cool magazines and manuals.

Simon Jonassen showed us his latest demo with 2-voice music, and plasma animation.

Wayne Campbell gave us a peek at how to use BASIC09 to use different routines, loops, goSUBS and goTOs, which was pretty cool.
