Re: New Q68 Case

Hi Martin, I am just trying accommodate the suppose Disk Drive expansion card. Since I have had no information about this, I will put this to one side.

That would be had, as I did not keep a log of the changes. Do not worry, if there is a negative reaction to my release of Copyrigh...

Re: Advanced QL User Guide

Hi, I have been looking at the books on WOS, they have done a good job in scanning and indexing them, pity there was not much attention paid to the quality of the scans. All the books are PDF image files, no text layer on in the PDF file, some books are scanned with 2 pages per page, the black edges...

Re: New Q68 Case

Hi Dave, The cases have slots to support the Q68 PCB, which in the current case the Q68 is in the bottom slot. I can change the location of the Q68 board to suit. If an expansion board is located in the bottom slot and the Q68 above the expansion board, how much head room for the expansion board is ...

Hi The pdf book on WOS, Spanish QL archive all break Copyright. But I doubt that Adder Technology would think it is worth their time to enforce the Copyright. I scanned my version from my copy of the book. I am just trying to do things correctly. There are many errors in the original book, which hav...
