I got my CoCo SDC from Zippster today and it works great. My first computer (COCO2) is going to get a lot more use now because of this thing. Just copy .DSK files to the sd card and you can mount them with out fuss. Even multi-disk OS9 SIERIA games work with out issue. The firmware lets you manipulate the images right from the CoCo so it doesn't need to be hooked to a PC or anything.

The coco's radioactive green looks glorious on a 55" LG 4K TV 😆

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.

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 🤔
