Re: Forth

I think the comment stated the River Forth...

I have found two Forth villages in Scotland (not very close to Forth River) and in Germany (part of Eckental).

Re: zx-tapper

Yes, it is. But remember, that Russian clones have stronger output for SAVE, than original Ferranti ULA. ZX Taper read ssignals from 1 V up. https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Foldcomp.cz%2Fviewtopic.php%3Ff%3D39%26t%3D3597%26hilit%3Dtaper%26start%3D75%23p44350

Re: Issue Tx boards discussions

Unfortunately, we need only mass production ( big batch ) for QL case to have the resonable price.

Can be the ZX Spectrum Next case used for QL/Q68 board?
That is mass produced, and we can try some negotiation about suprlus production for QL use.

Re: SuperBASIC function for type validation

I cant remember whether or not WHEN ERRor is part of SuperBASIC QL ROM (post JM) This SuperBASIC structure does not work very reliably on any QL versions other than Minerva v1.77 (or later), SMS or the THOR XVI: although Toolkit II improves the reliability... https://superbasic-manual.readthedocs.i...

Fleet tactical command

Who is d..3? Will d..3 share scans of manuals and maps, or content of diskettes? And, what is the status of FTC - is it free, abandoned, or still commercial? https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Vintage-Sinclair-QL-Software-Fleet-Tactical-Command-by-Di-Ren-/283902361083?_trksid=p2047675.m43663.l10137&nordt=t...

Re: I haven't seen one of these before.

This is not intended for QL, but for ZX Spectrum 128.

Re: 5.25" floppy drive configuration

QL FDD controllers (at least Miracle's ones) can not handle 1.2MB 5.25" floppy drives. 1.2 MB 5.25" (high density) FDD has 360 RPM (same as 8"), while 3,5 " FDD (in IBM PC - Japanese computers as Sharp X68000 or PC-98 being an exception) and 360/720 K (double/quad density) FDDs ...
