Re: Star Trek Discovery

I'm amused at all the acronyms flying around for the old series, but so far, nobody hss used STD for the new series. I wonder why? :D

Re: Text87plus4 and QPC2

I bought text87 when I started to envy my brother who had Signum 2 for the Atari and thought it were something similar for the QL - And was heavily disappointed. It's not just me then! I've had it for years and hardly ever used it. I really don't like the screen format/layout/whatever. It's serious...

Re: Text87plus4 and QPC2

Derek, no worries, thanks. Dilwyn, thanks. I've looked a Bruce's page and it seems to be quite out of date, I somehow doubt he is still trading (or at least, in QL stuff.) I can probably manage at the moment in QL mode as I'm after the content of my documents as oposed to the colours, but thanks aga...

Re: Text87plus4 and QPC2

Thanks Derek. I'm not using an ESC/P2 printer driver, so I shouldn't be needing that particular patch. Actually, I don't have the optional ESC/P2 driver installed!

Cheers,
Norm.

Re: Text87plus4 and QPC2

Hi Tobias, thanks very much for that. I "gave it a floppy" and suddenly, plus4setup will execute! Hooray! Sadly though, I get black ink on black paper so I have no idea what I'm supposed to be looking at now. If it's not one thing, it's another! However, it seems that I was using 16 bit co...

Text87plus4 and QPC2

I was having some problems with Text87plus4 while running QPC2 on Linux under WINE. This may be relevant. The program originally executed, then just hung - nothing on screen but I could see a new no-name job in the jobs list, and so I killed it. That problem was caused by my executable, text87plus4 ...

Re: test_task won't copy to DOS4_ on QPC2

Or you could use floppy disk image files. QPC2 supports floppy images. Or even my MDI/FDI drivers(plug, plug) You could, but they are interesting to use if, like me, QPC2 runs under WINE on Linux. If I navigate my way to a floppy image at startup, and choose it, I get told off as the "Path was...

Welcome.

Sounds like you are well into hardware then. You'll enjoy it here as we have quite a few hardware buffs around, including another called Dave. ;)
