Re: QL 34th Anniversary new hardware.

AWESOME Dave!

I'll save my pennies ready for Valentine's Day and divert some funds from the traditional wife's pressy (don't tell her!)

I also wonder what it would take to convince SMSQ/E to talk at 430k...

Behaviour of SER_BUFF in QPC & SMSQ/E

Hi everyone As part of the QLUB adapter project (QL LAN via a USB/SERial port & microcontroller - see elsewhere in the forum for more details), I am exploring how best to leverage the serial-buffers option in SMSQ/E (on QPC specifically.) For the QLUB project, I appear to need to extend the SERi...

Re: Ways to improve the QL Forum?

All thoughts I've had too - especially since the birth of the Q68 :-)

Re: QLAN-USB Adapter - working prototype...

A little update for those following this project... On-going progress is being made with the interfacing between the microcontroller and SMSQ/E (to add-back the native NET and FSERVE/Nx_ device drivers) - should have more to report in the next few weeks. Meanwhile, mostly out of curiosity, I picked-...

Re: Network Access Server - NAServe

Very nice piece of software, Martin - thank you!

With more new-old users coming back to the original QL, I reckon the native networking of the QL will start to get more use :-)

Re: Q68 New users and general usage thread

Hi Jean-Yves

Yes, that looks right - positive polarity in the centre/inside (curiously referred to as the 'tip') of the 2.1mm (inner diameter) x 5.5mm (outer) barrel at 5V/1A.

Good luck.

Re: Q68 New users and general usage thread

Hi Sparrowhawk

As regards power-supply - I am using a regular USB-type 'wall-wart' supply that can supply up to 1A, but I hacked the mini-USB end off and soldered-on the 2.1mm plug (+5V to the inner conductor) - which are pretty standard and easy to get a-hold of.

Re: Gold Card / Super Gold Card ROM patching...

Hi PrOf Just a slight correction... serial transmission is done by the CPU and is bit banged, using a couple of bits in one of the zx8302 registers. Whilst quite a bit of preparation seems to take place before QDOS writes to the 8302 for SERial transmission, the actual transfer is byte orientated (t...

...which for our non-US readers is 11th January (not 1st November!)

Will you give us any clues?

Can't wait :-)
