Re: Ebay QL sales

There seem to be a lot of QLs being sold on EBay every week, many not working properly and a lot of people bidding on them. Is it you lot pushing up the prices? :( I might have bought one for spares for £20 but not at those prices when you can get 3 year old Notebooks with a million times more powe...

Re: Quick q for Jan re: Hardback

Thanks.
No, that didn't work, still 'in use' when I dir the BBQL from the QXLII. It's seems to be all in a pickle now.

Edit: I can dir the mdv1_ on the BBQL from the QXLII. It just seems to be the win1_ that's locked up.

Re: Quick q for Jan re: Hardback

Hmmm, had an error, it fact it's happened twice now. It is reporting that 'Archive Disc has been removed from DEV1_ !!' and asking me to put it back in and press enter. I didn't do anything. Has the QNET locked up? When I try to dir the BBQL from the QXLII is says 'is in use'. In fact when I CTL+C o...

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

Ah, yes that makes sense. I thought that it must be QL due to the BT connector type plug and had forgotten that the +2A/B and +3 also had them. Thanks.

Re: Quick q for Jan re: Hardback

Without wishing to detract from Jan's Hardback program, my old WinBack utility - available from Dilwyn's excellent site - has a utility to scan the hard drive for directories and will create a small SuperBASIC program you can run prior to restoring, to recreate the full directory tree. This is usef...

I haven't seen one of these before.

Some kind of Spanish language number pad attachment (I'm not the seller). Looks interesting, was there also a UK version?

Re: The PC-FOUR, Psion's IBM Versions

What's the copyright status of the PC Xchange package? If the PC Four can be distributed, Can the PC Xchange version also be. I would have thought so. i.e. they've retained the copyright but allow for them to be freely distributed - if that were not the case I don't suppose Dilwyn would have made t...

Quick q for Jan re: Hardback

Mr Bredenbeek (or anyone else who may know), Does 'Hardback' allow the use of a QNET target as the destination, e.g. n1_win1_backup_. There is no mention in the readme. Just wondered before I try it, as I don't want to start backing up an entire win1_ over QNET and possibly have or cause issues etc....
