CoCoTALK! AfterDARK! Video Episode 13 - Oregon Trail, Disk Tools, and more!

Watch Now:

If you didn't hear enough old guys during the day, they're back at night, and now they're cranky because they didn't get their naps! It's CoCoTALK! AfterDARK!

AfterDARK! is always a mixed bag of non-essential dicussions about things only interesting to the people discussing them, however, we did get a chance to look at and play with Chris Pedersen port of the text version of Oregon Trail to the CoCo, and as a group, we had fun playing it! Paul Fiscarelli gave us a lenghty look at his current CoCo project, Disk Tool, I think we're all drooling over that, and, We got to look at a lot of photos from Al Hartman's Star Trek collection, too, so live long and prosper!

Video Episode 74 - A mixed bag of community content

Watch Now:

I have to say, I'm glad this show turned out as good as it did, the initial topic, "Drama Judor" was to let our host, Steve Strowbridge blow off some steam and get a few things off his chest with regards to events that have transpired over the past week that caused a lot of our social channels to be less than pleasant at times. A healthy discussion ensued from that, and afterwards, after Steve left, the show got good :)

The community and the panel got back to talking about all that's good in our little corner of the world, tech discussions, core dumps, what are sprites and so much more!! So enjoy another episode!
