It all depends on how quickly it clears customs - I think Customs & Excise have their hands full with other things at the moment - just cross your fingers it is still not there after 31st October...

Try the one at the bottom of http://sinclairql.speccy.org/utilidades.htm - I think that is the one you mean.

Re: Digital Precision 10 Disk set

I have sent Bill some other versions of the QL1 disk (neither had the yellow stickers, but both have different boot2 files) ! So far as I know, DP only ever issued an updated QL1 disk - so the problem with Professional Astrologer is odd - I have also sent Bill the Extensions_Code (thankfully it look...

Re: ADVENTURE CREATION TOOL Manual

David Batty does NOT own the rights to Digital Precision software - he just registered a company using the same name. Freddy Vaccha reverted the rights to the software to the original software authors. Unfortunately, there is no sign of Steve Sutton who wrote the Adventure Creation Tool (and others).

Re: Problem with Quill Document

Just a thought - how are you getting the Quill document onto the QL?
