Re: Show us your kit!

No need to apologise Derek. It's really a very minor thing and anyway I just applied some black permanent marker to it and it looks good as new. I remain incredibly grateful to you and all other QL hardware/software engineers and devs who spend their time creating new and wonderful things for us whi...

Re: Show us your kit!

RWAP - Hermes

I recently bought a Hermes chip for my QL on sellmyretro. As expected, communications from Rich were great, cost was very reasonable, delivery was in safe and secure packaging, and of course the chip itself works as expected. Printed manual + extra software on floppy are bonuses too. Very happy camp...

Mug (or indeed the coffee) not included ;)

I'm looking to install it over the weekend. My QL is rather prone to key bounce, so hopefully this solves it.

Re: Magnetic Scrolls Interpreter - Christmas Edition

Any chance you could add the release zips to the github Releases section of the repo's pages? Saves lazy people like me having to trawl through forum posts to find the latest ;)

And... fabulous work. Thank you.
