Re: QL on the Raspberry Pi...?

So I took out the load address on sQLux as it never worked on uQlx anyway.


Ah, actually removing the load address, did it!
Works.
Thanks

Re: SERial line reset

I didn't look into the code you've provided, you seem to have disassembled a lot of strings and other data into instructions. Quite right, learning DISA, it can mark blocks as DC.B or CODE, will try to improve disassembly. Command `0' resets IPC - perfect, will try to extend my code doing this as w...

Re: PSU under the hood

Not broken, just health inspection.
Do I have a thyristor version or the other, cannot tell?
Also is the thyristor one considered better / worse over the other?

There was a discussion long ago, about the wiring types, as there are two; that I cannot find now.

Many thanks
Tom
