Re: QPC2 on Windows 10

I ran into the same problem when trying to copy DD diskettes to QPC - didn't work unless I used Windows XP. Also, my newest PC doesn't have a floppy drive :( . I solved this by making image files of all QL floppies using the linux dd command, i.e. dd if=/dev/fd0 of=qlfloppy.flp. This way you can mou...

Re: SinclairQL.com - CALLING DAVE

I was just wondering if anyone can give Dave Park a nudge - it would be nice to redirect the sinclairql.com domain to point at the QL Wiki. Alas he isn't responding to me direct because I keep reminding him about sending me some stuff he has for me! Or does anyone else have a spare domain name we c...
