CoCoTALK! Audio Test (we’re researching a new conference platform)

00:0000:00

With the recent updates to Skype, which we're not a fan of, we've been forced to search for an alternative video conferencing platform, we've been trying a few features and platforms, last night we did a live stream test with our latest experiment, and we think we're going to go with this platform.  This audio is being posted, so we can hear the audio quality of the service to make sure it will meet the podcast quallity standards as well.

Video Episode 65 - Core Dump Debut

Watch Now:

 This week on CoCoTALK! We debut a brand new segment called Core Dump! This segment is the brain child of Nick Marentes.  This will be a tech talk focussed on some aspect of software, programming, development, etc.  The idea is to present something, either a question, or a problem, or show off something you've come up with, then get some input and suggestions from the panel and viewers, followed by a Q&A session.

We started the segment by looking at a program by Diego Barizo, with his game "Furious Felines 2" and we explored some options on how to reduce flicker.  All this and more on the latest episode of CoCoTALK!

On the panel: Al Hartman, Jason Reighard, D. Bruce Moore, Diego Barizo, Grant Leighty, Jay Searle, L. Curtis Boyle, Mark Overholser, Nick Marentes, Nick Marrota, Paul T. Barton, Richard Lorbieski, Rick Adams, Ron Delvaux, Steve Batson, Stevie Strow, Terry Steen

Episode 64 - Assembly part 2 - Hardware TALK!

00:0000:00

For Episode 64 of CoCoTALK! we will continue the Assembly language segment, part 2 will explain memory concepts. We'll also talk about "The State of CoCo Hardware" as a discussion came on on projects, and various opinions on wants, needs, duplicate products, etc., so hopefully we can all weigh in on this, in a civilized manor, and we'll probably talk about other CoCo things, too!
