This page is to give thanks to the kind people who have donated time, loaned materials, or otherwise helped me in my efforts to understand, document, and archive the information presented here. In semi-chronological order:
- Susan Battle (nee Thomas)
What more could a guy ask for in a wife and best friend? Intelligence, beauty, humor, kindness, and enduring patience, especially when it comes to my preoccupation with decrepit computers. Susan has let me indulge my child-like (childish?) fascination with old computers, even when it has meant giving over large parts of the house to cobweb ridden boxes of junk.
I love you, Susan!
- David Jeppeson
David gave me his trusty old Compucolor II and got me started down this halting path of writing an emulator for the machine.
- Dr. David B. Suits
Dr. Suits was kind enough to allow me to scan and present his book (add link here once it is up)Color Graphics for Intecolor 3651 and Compucolor II Computers. What's more, he was encouraging of my efforts and answered a number of pesky questions while I tried to make the emulator behave as much like the real machine as I could. He has also contributed scans of a number of Colorcue newsletters, which he was co-editor for at one time.
- Mr. Peter Hiner
Peter has generously shared his BASIC compilers, game programs, and utilities on the website. He has also scanned a number of newsletters, and generally has been very encouraging of this somewhat quixotic project.
- Chris Double
- Al Kossow
Thanks to Al Kossow, the tireless genius behind bitsavers.org, for letting me use a couple of the Compucolor manuals he scanned.
- Garry Epps
Gary has also done a lot of work in shaking the bugs out of the emulator, to the point of writing new diagnostic programs running on the virtual 8080, and in making sense of what is on the captured disk images.
- Graham Epps
Thanks to Graham Epps for allowing use of his games, including a great version of Startrek.
- Guy Larri
Thanks to Guy Larri for allowing use of his games, including two versions of his Pacman clone, Ghost Crunchers.
- David Polglaze
David contributed his collection of disks, which consisted mostly of Compucolor Corp software releases. Not only did it fill in the gaps of some disks missing from the collection, they were the source of a number of cover art scans and software instruction manuals that were missing too.
- Andy Wardley
Andy is responsible for creating and maintaining the Template Toolkit. This is a nice open source templating system that makes creating and maintaining the web pages of this site a lot simpler.
