Re: Show us your rig!

WIFI on a QL, amazing! You must keep up updated with it's progress!! It stopped on the german QL Canon 9 pin serial connector. Seems, that it has nonstandard pinout. On ZX Spectrum, this is already running. For example, the IRC client: nn0JyxaeE0M or FTP client: crc30k26_nc or terminal: w3sShtCrL2I...

I suspect these as non-standard, as my QL refuses to talk to any serial device (both SER1 and SER2). I have replaced the original 8049 with Hermes. Does the german (Samsung) QL need a differe...

Re: Show us your rig!

First WiFi experiments ready to begin. Uses module similar to WiFi enabled SIF serial interface for ZX Spectrum. Actually, at the moment, the connecting cable is bad. http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/hs041.snc6/167193_182016178499552_100000735137207_460366_6915126_n.jpg
