Re: Miracle Super Gold card

Huh. I just thought it was Ingot, because an ingot is a block of gold, and it's a gold card? Yes but the word ingot (British) comes from the French word lingot ... and I've just tried to explain to you why the British forgot the 'l' in their word ... ;) See here : http://www.yourdictionary.com/ingot

Re: QL 34th Anniversary new hardware.

Beautiful. Quite tired at the moment but I believe with your dongle the OPL2LPT will become easily usable thanks to either the I2S or I2C or the GPIOs ... Sorry me for the silly question, but what is motor PWM ? Any use to build a CNC ? OK, found this for people interested, good tutorial : http://ww...

Re: Why did Sinclair hate National Semiconductor?

You'll have to check the various interviews on YT, but I remember Steve Furber or Hermann Hauser (Acorn) explaining

And they never understood why. (For the exact same specs compared to equivalent parts from other founders).
