Re: QDOS TCP/IP programming in Assembler

The email standard, I can't remember the rfc number, is plain text. So the QL would be able to cope. However, Microsoft, when they finally twigged to the Internet, created Outlook which defaulted to html for emails. Most computer users recommend either too dumb or unable/unwilling o change the defau...

Re: Failed Windows 10

Dilwyn,

Have you changed your image/avatar? You look a little greyscale tonight!

I'd leave windows 7 for the rest of eternity if I was you. It works, and as I've said before, it really was the best version of windows ever - even I can use it happily,

Take care.

Cheers,
Norm.

Sorry best I could do at short notice, although it appears that a piebald pony has approximately 3.14 testicles! :lol:

I'll get my coat!

Re: Failed Windows 10

I'll second what "vanpeebles" just said. Hopefully you'll be back up and running soon. All the best. A suggestion. If you can find someone how can help, get hold of something like Linux Mint (stay with me Dilwyn, it's definitely not what you think!) Which is a "live cd" you can b...

Re: Status of QMON

As far s I know it is still available from Jochen. Mine is years old, but very handy in tracking down nasty bugs in my code. There's also a debugged version that Laurence (Reeves) created a while back, but I'm not sure if it was ever commercially available.

Maybe someone knows?


Cheers,
Norm.

Re: Digital Archeology

Why should kids start working on a game theirselves when they can easily download something much better with a single mouse click? For the same reason we all stuck with our Sinclairs? Anyway, one good thing so far at least, kids are now being taught programming in ICT lessons as opposed to just usi...

Re: Digital Archeology

It is interesting how many people started an IT career thanks to what they learnt on a Sinclair machine - I really don't think that in 30 years time, many people will be able to credit their programming careers to receiving a PC for Christmas in 2015.... Speaking as one of the afore mentioned "...
