Color Computer 3 Easter Egg - Credit Screen

type in CLS100<ENTER>
You will get a cleared screen with

T. Harris and T. Earls

on the top line. This will only work once per cold boot.

I think this works in all three text modes.

This egg only shows up in the hi-resolution screens (WIDTH 40 and WIDTH 80). While Microsoft did the original BASIC language in the Color Computer, Microware (a Des Moines, IA based company that created the OS-9 operating system) was contracted to update the software. According to one of the programmers who worked on the project (and who is in the picture), they had to make the updates as an overlay patch (since they could not modify the Microsoft code). The programmers also hid their photo in the ROM (the CTRL-ALT-RESET egg listed elswhere) and one of them still works for Microware today (one went to Microsoft shortly after the CoCo project, and the other left Microware around 1999).
