They bicker a bit sometimes but it's still worth it. Some of the
hardware and software projects they create are *amazing*. For example,
we have one guy who used a FPGA to convert the RGB output on a CoCo 3
so it would work crystal clear with a VGA monitor _and reproduce
artifacting_ which is normally only available on the composite/RF
output. He also created a Z-80 CP/M emulator that runs under
(Nitro)OS-9. (For a demo showing WordStar and Turbo Pascal and others
running all at the same time on a CoCo 3 see
https://youtu.be/Ysn7Na60ZGA .)

FYI, there are also archives available at the link I posted above.

Different guy. I chat about IBM mainframes and DEC minis and TRS-80
micros but I've never been to a VCF.
