I'm getting more and more excited, following this 6809 thread, because somebody at work is planning on giving me his old Tandy Color Computer. I haven't seen it yet, but he says it's a very complete system with two diskette drives, lots of cartridges and software on diskettes. He was a Radio Shack employee while he was accumulating it. I'll probably have tons and tons of diskette software once I've taken delivery on it.
