Hi Dilwyn,

is it worth your while sending/emailing me a copy of the corrupt file(s) to see if I can extract anything from them? Just a thought. (Or can you put them somewhere I can download them?)


Cheers,
Norm.

Thanks. I'll dig the disks out of the attic soon - the disk will copy, but the files themselves are corrupt IIRC.

OK Dilwyn, I can at least try to rescue something. I presume they are Quill doc files?

Cheers,
Norm.

If while sorting out your QL stuff you happen across a disk with a manual for Page Designer 2 I can release it as freeware. My disks with the DOC files on are all corrupt, and my OCR program is not up to handling the small print in yellow cover manuals you released for it all those years ago! I have the binaries and sources on floppy disk here if a copy of the manual on disk can be found!


Hi Dilwyn, I will have a look for a copy of the manual, I wouldn't be surprised if I had one. Don't hold your breath but when I do dig out my old disks I will let you know.
