Re: SMSQzine #7 is now available

Martin,

Were you able to download zip #5? Is the zip having issues opening? I did test the original zips to make sure they were all different and able to open.

Re: SMSQzine #7 is now available

Martin,

All of the files should not be there. I checked them all and made sure to upload any that were missing. I'm keeping track to see if the web service deletes any. I've tested all the zips and they are different and they all open for me (using build in unarchiver in Ubuntu).

Re: C68 Console

Tofro, Thanks. I was thinking that opening "CON_" was referring to the first console. If I use the default console, how do I convert that into a QDOS file handle? Or should I just open my own window (not open a default console) and go that route. I'll probably try that this evening and see...

C68 Console

I've written a test program to open a console in C68, write some test and draw a block. The console is 512x256, but I've noticed that the text and graphics are shifted to the left. I left in the end message "press any key" that keeps the window open and it's text is where I would expect it...

Re: Making QL Software More Accessible

I'm still in favor of QL zip files. Other versions of zip can read the QL zip files, so I can extract README files or other text files from the native OS. To use the software, I put the zip file in to a directory that is accessible by an emulator. Fire up the emulator and extract the zip file to RAM...

Re: Let us chat about Desktop Publishing on the QL

> DO you think it is worth trying to write an open source DTP programme? I think there is little bang for the buck in doing that, unless someone is really interested in it. There are other Open Source DTP programs that run under other platforms (Scribus is what I use). In this day, what would be the...

Re: Let us chat about Desktop Publishing on the QL

The two DTP programs that I remember are FrontPage and Page Designer. I think I might have used both, but it's been a long time.

Re: Poll: Do you use a Mouse on your QL ?

I used Albin Hessler's serial mouse software. I built an adapter that converted the PC serial mouse to work on the QL serial port. I had a logitech trackball mouse. I used mostly Qascade for starting applications and used MicroEmacs a lot, which was PE enabled.
