Re: Sinclair ZX Spectrum 128k +2a. Boxed

That 2a (grey case) looks quite a bit like a 2b (black case) to me. ;) The original +2 was a grey case. The +2A, +2B and +3 were all black cases (and use a different membrane to the +2). Unfortunately, the grey +2 is more collectible, because it does not suffer with software compatability (and soun...

Re: Prospero Fortran and C

The Prospero Fortran (ProFortran) is now freeware and found on Dilwyn's site - http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/language/index.html It is interesting that you claim to have a copy of the Prospero C ROM - can you upload a ROM dump and picture. See https://qlwiki.qlforum.co.uk/doku.php?id=qlwiki:compware_c - I...

Re: Computer One - Disk Interface for ICL OPD / Merlin Tonto

I'm not 100% sure, I think that the document came from former Quanta webmaster, Dan Abbot, as he was very interested in these machines. Unfortunately, I'm not in touch with him these days - might be worth asking the Gilpins if they can put you in touch with him, or if they know if Quanta has any fu...

Re: Connecting a mouse to the QL

How can I connect a mouse to the QL ? As serial mouse with 9 pin connectors are very hard to find, is there a way to connect a mouse with a PS2 connector ? A quick look on ebay shows some ps/2 mouse to serial port adaptors. You just need a BT to 9 pin D serial port adaptor on the QL, plus the seria...
