[Coladam] Smartwriter R81 and R84 update

            Back in the 90's I spoke with Jim Walters and he informed me that someone did give him Smartwriter revision 81 and 84. Revision 81 and/or 84 is suppose to have less bugs and more features and is the best version available. Jim went into all kinds of interesting details about R81 and R84 back in the 90's. Coleco official only released R80 as the latest version. Coleco was most likely going to release R84 for the latest Adams, but then in 1985 Coleco stopped making the Adam which made R80 Smartwriter the last official released version. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
            Back in the 90's I tried to get a copy of R84 from Jim but was unsuccessful. A couple of years ago I spoke with Jim Walters and he mentioned he was not doing anything more with the Adam. He still had the old Adam stuff from the 90's but it sounded like the Adam was packed away. 
            I would have liked to have seen Smartwriter R84 but Jim Walters is the only one I know that claims to have a working copy. I sent some blank eproms to him many years ago to see if he could copy the R84 image but things did not work out and I never got to see R81 or R84. 
            Last time I checked Jims telephone number and email address has remained the same if anyone wants to contact him.

Back in '93, I received a bunch of Coleco hardware and software thru a 
member who happened to meet a former Coleco employee (you can read about it 
in NIAD issue #95 and #96 downloadable on Joe Blenkle's site) and two of the 
items were SmartWRITER eproms with revisions of 81 and 84. I passed these 
onto Jim Walters of Walters Software Co. for him to checkout and make 
available for others. Does anyone know if Jim ever did anything with these 
as I lost touch with him.
