Re: Announcing availability of a QLNET driver for the Q68 (ND-Q68)

Hi Dave, I have not fitted any expansion port header to any Q68 boards so far. But I was going rectify this by fitting a male header, but as you suggest maybe female header this best like this: 464.jpg I was going to design a PCB for QL NET and I2C, but since you have done already, it makes sense to...

Re: Announcing availability of a QLNET driver for the Q68 (ND-Q68)

About the electronic add-on needed, it is not clear to me what the red lines in the PDF means i.e. what needs to be removed from the original schematic. But I am in no rush and I am sure everything will be clarify soon. I need to finish printing my Q68 laptop casing anyway. Hi Francois, The digram ...

Re: Symmetric multiprocessing...

Re: FlashbackSE misbehaving on Q68

Hi,

I have been reading the updates file, is the Screen Save option in Flashback enabled, this may explain the QL screen present on executing the Flashback application.

Is it possible to disable the screen save function?
