It'll add a couple of wrinkles to the design, but it will still globally work on QL and Q68/40/60. It will come configured to 9600, but then on the Q68+ you can just configure it to 115200 or 230400 and go. :)

Hi, Dave

I was sure I'd stated my interest in a dongle... but apparently not, so please add one to my shopping basket :)

Current contents:

1x Miniplane
1x Minerva
1x Serial WiFi dongle

Thanks.

John Hall

Noted.

However, look at the Q68 dongle thread in the Hardware section as I am already working on version two of the dongle, which will be quite improved. I don't mean to Osborne myself, but it will have substantial improvements in utility for only a small increase in cost.

Thanks, but a V1 dongle will meet my current needs nicely :)

However, I will almost certainly want a V2 dongle with the RJ45 socket at a later date...

Excitement's rising here... Things are coming together nicely. Might have something big (the biggest yet, anyway) to announce on Wednesday!
