Re: Quanta AGM and QL Workshop 2012

Just wondered who was planning on attending the Quanta AGM and QL Workshop this year (24th / 25th March), being held in Manchester ? Nice and handy for anyone wanting to attend from abroad and catching a plane! Don't forget you don't have to be a member of Quanta to come along - all are welcome :D ...

Re: Faster/wider CPU...

Good luck. Something finished is always better that a nice concept which becomes an endless story. I also plan for some "last resort" in case we fail to debug the FPGA CPU. There are provisions to add a hardware CPU on a daughterboard ;) I was near to that decision already, but the partia...

Re: Helping to Promote QL Adventures

I used to enjoy that magazine - I wonder whatever happened to Richard Alexander? (snip) If anyone does manage to contact Richard, vanpeebles scanned the Adventurers Forum mags for me with a view to making them available if I could contact Richard to get permission. Sadly, my efforts to contact him ...

Re: Faster/wider CPU...

Hi Peter, I really appreciate your input into this thread. I agree with you on the SMSQ/E license situation - I think it is a very unfortunate license that was designed not to encourage development (which it hasn't) but to protect incumbent interests (which it has.)

Re: GC/SGC battery replacements...

Would a small CE sticker suffice, or does it have to be on the PCB itself?

Qubide partitions

Does anyone know if it would be possible to reformat a WIN1_ partition on a Qubide hard disk without losing the other partitions? It looks like the member’s WIN1_ has a corrupt directory, with repeated spurious names in the DIR list which can’t be deleted. Alternatively, does anyone know of a wa...
