I just found your group and like what I see, I am a big fan of the Adam
(Well of all 80's computers/video games).  I found this site on the internet
and figured if you didn't have it, it seems to be a good resource.


I am in the process of trying to track down an adam.  I used to have one
many years ago, with 2 tape drives, the floppy drive, and I think I even had
the network card that was available for a short while.

I for those who are fans of Coleco products in general, at one time Coleco
made something called "My Talking Computer" After a lot of research that I
had done on the device, I found that it was only released for a short while
before Coleco was sued for the fact that most of the available cartridges
were actually Vaporware (There were ad's for them, but they didn't exist).

I also have a Colecovision in the original box (Not new/sealed though), but
the box is in good shape for being over 20 years old.

The only other question I have is does anyone have either a supplier of the
Adam tapes, or know of a method to convert a standard high quality tape into
one that the Adam would be able to use.

Geek: I think that's wrong on a fundamental level.
Normal Person: Huh? Huh? What?
