Re: m68k.info talk with me

The notice of mk79 's forthcoming talk prompted me to search through a box of papers that have lain in my loft for nearly thirty years.

Re: QL Ethernet expansion card project

I wrote the first working QL-SD driver (derived from QL-HD and never released) in C, but with an ancient K&R style compiler named PDQC. Also recently my simple PS/2 mouse driver for Q68 Minerva, where I'm stuck with C68 bugs regarding TRAP #3. Ah, group therapy feels so good! I was also struggl...

Re: A newcomer from Barcelona

Microdrives are a marvellous, finicky beast :D

Re: QL Ethernet expansion card project

Super extra nice, Petri! Thank you for your kind words! I really appreciate it. I hope you will share the design once done? I'm not a production-grade electronics designer but I shall make the basic schematic idea available. There isn't much to it, really, just mapping a piece of memory to the ethe...
