I'm on the internet! Well SDF's COM chat at least. 🤔
Surfing the information superhighway at 300 baud. I wish i could find a terminal program that supports the true lowercase my "2b" machine can do.
I figured it out. The Tandy COMPAC terminal program doesn't reset the VGU when it loads. So the basic POKES for lower case and alternate color mode stick 🙂
Sadly gopher segfaults if you set your terminal to 'dumb'. Happens on SDF and my local machine. But i managed to figure out you can set up your own local terminfo database with tic. Just name it ~/.terminfo.cdb in your home directory. Now I have fancy screen controls for my vic20 and CoCo on my sdf account. Gopher and lynx now run but a total mess. I guess they never tested for 22x23 or 32x16 screens 🤔
