Re: Reviving Quanta

Some time ago, I applied for Quanta membership, as I also thought it would be a pity if Quanta was wound up after all that time. I received no response so far. :( That is interesting - try emailing membership AT quanta DOT org DOT uk - if you are on my QL mailing list, I sent an email last week inc...

TRON Light Cycles for the QL

I see that to coincide with the latest TRON LEGACY 3D by Disney, Urs Koenig has released a revamped version of the public domain game, Lightcycle for the Sinclair QL by Martin Neuss

There is a video of the game and link to download on Youtube:

Re: Something Special This Way Comes

Very nice! I hope this one QL will survive without future updates... It would be devastating to upgrade it now. Unfortunately I have tried it with a Gold Card, but it does not work with that for some reason (even with the 68008 processor removed) - maybe linked to the Dongle being present, who know...

Re: QL wish list.

I'm looking to get a new membrane and wonder what the cost of a membrane with shipping to the US (TX zip 78664) would be? Also, I'm curious how it would be packaged to prevent damage in transit? How much extra to include the current Turbo compiler on floppy? :) Dave born-again QLer Hi Dave - I can ...

Re: Something Special This Way Comes

Hold onto it then as it is more valuable - even with the various errors in it (and the View command which was never implemented in Quill)

Re: Reviving Quanta

Post sent by Geoff Wicks: Last weekend several people castigated me for suggesting that Quanta should be wound up. Now it's time to see if you are prepared to put your money where your mouths are. I am not asking you to to do anything drastic like joining the committee, but something more simple to ...

Re: Something Special This Way Comes

I think I have the same manual! The pages have no date and there is a Q-Club letter at the back which mentions the rom dongle. If it is marked First Edition it possibly is the same manual - I have seen an even earlier manual which was not marked first or second edition, and was undated. The most re...

Re: Something Special This Way Comes

Sorry if you are disappointed, it is nothing new, just something that was discarded a long long time ago in the QL's history (and probably Sinclair thought they had put to bed for good). We have now managed to resurrect an early example of the Sinclair QL home computer as it was first unveiled to th...

Re: Something Special This Way Comes

Not much longer to wait.

Could it be http://www.sellmyretro.com/offer/detail ... Mouse-1372

or maybe:
http://www.sellmyretro.com/offer/detail ... rface-1369

Hmm - it would have to be rarer than either of those.....

Re: Something Special This Way Comes

Pre-ordering is not an option as it is probably a one of a kind !

It will be listed on SellMyRetro.com in the next few days
