Re: Beyond Super Gold Card

Make it in one of those whopping big cases where the QL sits on top :D How about make it like a Atari Mega 2 or Mega STe/TT as the QL keyboard is not large, about the same size as Atari keyboards for these systems were. Make a nice case to sit behind the QL that has all sorts of new input output. J...

Re: Beyond Super Gold Card

And I am one of these new guys and for sure plan on buying a Gold type card. QLs are selling like hot cakes on eBay so betting a new legion of QLers would like to expand their BBQLs.

Re: WTB: Re-Felted Blank Microdrive Cartridges

I have a pile of re-felted carts that I've formatted at least 5x (with no errors). Most have old stickers on them. £23 for 8 and I'll throw in 2 decent original Sinclair bookcase type boxes for 4 carts each. Postage on top would be £3.50 standard airmail, or £6.00 if you want signed-for. Thanks... ...

WTB: Re-Felted Blank Microdrive Cartridges

Now that I own a QL, I want to start using it.

I want to buy some new or used re-felted blanks so I can save my word.

Anyone selling any?

I am in USA so please offer price + postage for some.

Playtape Felt for Microdrive Cartridges?

Not sure if you are all familiar with Playtapes? They were very small tapes, like 8 track, but about 1/4 the size. Still bigger than Microdrive Carts but closer than big 8 tracks. Wonder if these could be used to re-felt our carts? https://www.8trackavenue.com/product-page/playtape-replacement-felt-...

Re: Sinclair QL First Boot in USA 2019 - my YouTube video

Today I booted my Sinclair QL for the 1st time. The SuperGoldCard is a fantastic piece of hardware, but it suffers from not being available, and not solving the video issue. Recently I had a private discussion again about an UltraGoldCard for the QL case, mainly to provide an easy upgrade for retur...
