Re: "Mini" QL Printer

I should add, it was fun to "setup", in that you set the baud rate and other serial settings using the single paper feed button. It prints a menu on the paper and you chose menu options by the number of keypresses of the single button. So, it uses a lot of paper when you first set it up.

Re: "Mini" QL Printer

I found it on eBay, it's an HP brand, I think it's supposed to be used in conjunction with a cash register. I have included a close-up picture.

"Mini" QL Printer

Hi guys,

I picked up a small thermal printer that uses a serial interface - it works great with the QL. It has been fun to see it keep a record of moves with Psion chess.

Re: QL Mouse cable connections

I would a custom/specific QL mouse, if it could be made to look retro, in black, with red buttons, to look like it was made for the QL.
I've been meaning to spray paint my genius mouse black, with red buttons.
