I think he has a Github page, maybe look for his SER3 driver there.

Re: UART driver for QDOS/SMSQ

Jan Wrote a driver for the 6850 ACIA as far as I recall. Maybe if the source is available it could be modified. A uart is just controlled via its registers after all.

Re: QL Eprom programmer

Kicad I quite like, but it has its foibles. CERN use it and help develop it, so if it's good enough for CERN, I can probably get used to it. . Norman. I have just been using KICAD to design an Arduino based datalogger PCB for a project my students and myself are involved in, I actually quite like i...

Re: Stuart Honeyball

I am fairly sure Stuart moved back to Yate in South Gloucestershire (My old home town) I suspect that it may be possible an announcement may be made in the local paper at some point. http://www.gazetteseries.co.uk/announcements/ I seem to recall Miracle's address was also in Yate (Littledean) at som...

Re: Stuart Honeyball

I was present at the launch of the Gold card at the Horticultural Halls at Victoria and remember well the buzz about it at that event. Can you remember when that was? Would be very early 90's. Possibly the last ever Traditional Microfair at that venue. They moved to Sandown racecourse I think after...

Re: Stuart Honeyball

Very sad news indeed. I was fortunate to have had many long conversations with Stuart at Microfairs, workshops and other events. I was present at the launch of the Gold card at the Horticultural Halls at Victoria and remember well the buzz about it at that event. We once met him in the centre of Bru...

Re: Whatever happened to ?

John. Good to see you are still around. I think the last time we spoke may have been at a Bristol Workshop at Portishead or perhaps one of the events at Portsmouth. I know I did not go to the one in 2000 ish. I had more or less left the scene by about 1999, although was still reading the newsgroup a...

Whatever happened to ?

Been thinking about the people I used to bump into and chat a lot to at various QL Events. Lau Reeves (Last I heard he was at Port Isaac in Cornwall) Gerard Phelan (Always chatted at Microfairs at the old Horticultural Halls in London) John Hall (Seemed to always be at Workshops) Stuart Honeyball (S...

Re: Hello from Dorset

I remember having written a modified SER driver for driving the Tandata stack, which needed certain characters to be escaped. It's the QCON_Driver_v0_99.zip file in Dilwyn's software archive (Internet section). Also the original Astracom modem which used CTRL-P control codes needed a special driver...
