Re: Keyboard Interface problem

Thanks Tobias and Urs! I would just connect an original keyboard membrane for testing, but one connector is missing on the m/b and it's a bloody big tangle of cables, drives and things inside, so would require quite a bit of time to solder a new connector on. Be aware that when the interface is plu...

Re: QL Haul, list of Contents and questions!

Andrew - I found the original user guide printed sheets that go with that Mathematical and Graphical toolkit. That would help a lot ! I managed to create some 2D and 3D plots of some simple functions, but the program is much more complex than that and I have no idea what most of the parameters mean...

Re: Keyboard Interface problem

Thanks Tobias and Urs! So the UR stands for Uli Rosowski! Well that explains that then, and in the manual it only refers to XT keyboards, so it looks like I'll have to find an XT keyboard.... which doesn't seem all that easy. That's annoying, I was hoping to have this up and going before Christmas, ...

No, it's from Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden. The notes say that it was the first one they created for the QL.

Keyboard Interface problem

Hello, this is a long shot as it related to an add-on board for which I can find no info whatsoever! Basically, my custom QL beast that I acquired recently has this keyboard connector connected to the ROM port: re-tast keyboard Int.jpg It has an AT (I assume it's AT and not XT because among the pape...

Re: THE DISTRIBUTION - Word is out!

I'm grateful that you're still there Urs.

In a recent purchase was included a Thor-Desk 3.5" disk from you (Cowo). It's dated 1989. That's 30 years ago and you're still here! Hut ab.

(by the way, it has the address on it of the original owners - a Mr and Mrs Courage from Neuss).

Re: QL Haul, list of Contents and questions!

Atari ST mice, Amiga mice, Acorn 8 bit and Archimedes mice are all ‘bus’ type. They of course all use different connectors or pin-outs. But if an adaptor cable is made, they will work with other bus type systems. Mark I think I'm sorted on the rodent front. I had a PS/2 to Amiga male adapter and it...

Yes.

Is there a way I can attempt to do it again that is of more use?
