Re: Delete - vapourware book

I had never seen that Flickr stream, so thanks for that information. In terms of the book, I think nothing new. The pandora laptop is shown, as is the flat TV etc. So probably nothing brand new. Of course it's not just photos but also the narrative around the various projects which is equally fascin...

Delete - vapourware book

My daughter got me a copy of Paul Atkinson's "DELETE, a design history of computer vapourware" for Christmas. She found it second hand (bargain!) but it's available on Amazon (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Delete-Design-History-Computer-Vapourware) https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images...

Re: Sparrowhawk

I think the issues with IP are more to do with the particular porter in that case. Although I do not know the ins and outs. There are lots of free ports that have not had any issues: Android, Psion 16, Java, Web (Midnight/MU itself), Windows. A partial list is on Chris' site: http://www.frozenempire...

Re: Sparrowhawk

Hi Derek, A 68K version would be of great interest to the LOM community, I'm sure. There was once an Amiga port done by a chap called Peter Armstrong (if memory serves - he helped me out with the landscaping offsets for M/MU). But I don't think that the source come was ever available for that (I cou...

Re: GitHub - QL Sources

We need some system of getting github to recognise SuperBASIC as a language - having spoken to them, you need an open source Textmate-style language grammar defining for it to get it added. If you are still looking, you could start by using my BBEdit / Text Wrangler file. It might be easy to conver...

Re: Wire Frame Graphics

Nice - on the Mac I simply copied the code from page here into BBEdit (30 day trial, then free mode does most of what you'd need anyway), named it cubedemo_bas and saved it to the Desktop. Started Q-emuLator, attached the Desktop as mdv1_ and loaded / ran it. No issues. Impressive bit of maths invol...

Re: Q68 - setting up a BBQL style environment

Thanks both - yes, the bit I was missing in my head was how the Q68 knew that the win8_ drive on the main boot program pointed to the Q68_SMSQ.WIN file.
