Our Coleco ADAM Post Was Broken But Now It's Fixed

Coleco ADAMLast month we published a fun article titled The Future of the Coleco ADAM.

Unfortunately, it was a bit broken.

The bulk of the article stems from a couple USENET posts from 1995 that I saved almost 30 years ago.  They detail the network of enthusiasts who keep the Coleco ADAM alive and their strange subculture.

Unfortunately, they were truncated at 78 characters and oddly formatted.  When I loaded everything into WordPress, it looked fine in the preview but upon publication it was, in the words of long-time LowEndBox enthusiast Susan, “very hard to read”.

I took some time and painstakingly reformatted the article, and it’s been updated.  The paragraphs are still a little long by 2023 standards, but that’s the original author’s fault.  However, at least there ARE paragraphs now 😄

So if you were put off by the wall of jumbled text, go and enjoy the article now!
