And, I've dreamed for years of yellow motherboards with improved layout/features. Paranormal inspiration!? :D

Re: Issue 6 board updates

I have this empty shell of a March 1986 manufactured SG18 build standard QL, looking for a new board. [emoji16]Image

Re: Q68 Software SD Card

I would not use tar.bz2 compression, as most people will struggle with the decompression. Which is a pity as it is the most efficient. I can only share single files on Mega, but that is not a problem. The reason for not implementing this down-able SD Card image was there was little adverse opinion ...

Re: vDrive ZX: emulated ZX Microdrive

Two thoughts: - Wonder if the vDrive would also work when the QL is not running QDOS/Minerva, but the GST 68K/OS? - The ICL OPD (also marketed as BT Merlin Tonto, Telecom Australia Computerphone) is based on Sinclair ZX83 (QL) hardware including the QL Microdrive. Wonder if the vDrive would also wor...
