Compucolor items on eBay

I assume your CCII is still working -- if so, you're very lucky. Mine
would blow up about every 9 months or so, and it got to the point where
I'd cringe every time I turned it on, waiting for smoke to come out of
it. The analog board driving the display had some really cute
tendencies, where one component would fail and then take out a number of
others in rapid succession.

I will look and see if somehow some of my Compucolor software survived.
I think I tossed it years ago, but I had some pretty cool stuff,
including an "Asteroids" game I wrote in assembler. You are welcome to
anything I can dig up -- I'll let you know if I find anything.

I used to have all the technical docs and a full set of "Colorcue"
newsletters that Compucolor put out; it's time to go look at my attic
