Re: Knoware.no

But once it becameclear that sending official letters printed in monospace courier was considered "odd" (like some Unabomber hiding out in the hills somewhere - a potential threat to national security!) I felt I had no choice but to succumb to brute PC. Well, not really. Tony Tebby has wr...

Really? Is there anything more genuinely vintage?

We advance on vintage but in our own way.


If you really do not know this keyword, simply look at the SuperBASIC source of the Tryptich collection and/or QL.Gardener... They were genuine experts in using it.

Re: Faster CPU plug in extensions, How?

This reminds me of the ABC MegaRAM from Uli Rosowski, which had the same processor. I tried to buy a MegaRAM, but ABC Elektronik, decided not to supply it and tried to keep the money I paid them. But I used the German Law Courts to force Andreas Budde to return the money. Which this was successful,...

Running at native speed, it would provide RAM in all unused areas of the extended memory map. This reminds me of the ABC MegaRAM f...
