Re: Note to self...

However, if you are enough confident with your media you can choose a quick format and then formatting 2GB partition will go very fast (seconds on basic ql). And you might as well on flash media like CF as the wear levelling means that your not actually doing anything meaningful with the sector tes...

Re: Q68 New users and general usage thread

I have no idea about "Habi Image Editor", there is no documentation. Probably it was made for Intel PC only, and does not work with correct Qubide images. How to use "dd" for this was already on the forum. IIRC it helped someone else in a similar situation. dd if=<blah> of=<blah...

Re: QL 34th Anniversary new hardware.

Just a thought - this device might not only be useful for just QLs but for PCs as well.

Re: ROMable SMSQ/E

So the Amiga "solves" the booting from 0 problem with reprogrammable vectors by having kickstart shadow at 0 and 10M on switch on, it then jumps to 10M and turns off the shadow at 0 leaving rom running high in memory map for initialisation of the vectors then OS.
