Re: Target for major new QL hardware

Something that can be both "extension slot plugin" and "standalone" might be feasible, but hardly also "QL mainboard replacement" as a three in one package. The QL case openings require connector locations which are badly suitable for a card that is also slot plugin. (...

Re: Target for major new QL hardware

I have voted for the "QL extension slot plugin" and "QL mainboard replacement" options, but ..., could there be an option that combines these two? (In the style of "Turbo Chameleon 64" (https://www.vesalia.de/e_chameleon.htm)) A board that can operate as a "stand-a...

Re: QNET to USB adapter

But the ability to network BBQL QL Net to Q68 via Sernet QPC2 The Q68 acts as a Network connection to both system, so the QPC2 can access the microdrives of the BBQL. True, but it would be very interesting to connect Q68 with QPC2 through QL NET. This would leave the RS232 port free for other purpo...

Re: 700 Euros for a boxed QL \o/

The only thing that can stop the continuous price rise would be the appearance of a QL motherboard clone and a QL keyboard clone. (As is happening on other platforms). Years ago there was an overvaluation of the Gold Card and Super Gold Card. After Tetroid manufactured their clones, prices stabilize...

Re: QL-SD

I have voted for option 2 and option 1 (in that order). I think the rom port option is more comfortable if you have some QLs, it also does not require opening or manipulating Inside the computer. (Another reason for me is that I already have the internal version ... ;) ...).

Re: Boot Q68 without monitor and keyboard

The "Q Zero" is a tiny QL compatible computer in a sub-RaspberryPi Zero form factor. It has most of the Q68 features, but with some omissions and some additions. It is meant as a space + cost saving "embedded" board, so it has no fullsize connectors on it, just pin headers. In y...

Re: SMSQ/E 3.36

Could you help by translating the messages into Spanish? I could do it with google translate but I'm afraid it would be a disaster Hi Giodgio, of course! I can help you with those translations. In Spain there is a small group of QL enthusiasts who will be happy to help with any Spanish translations...

Re: Boot Q68 without monitor and keyboard

Just detach them and boot the Q68. No idea what problems people are seeing here. Hi Peter, you're right, I just tried it again and everything is fine. SMSQE starts even if there is no keyboard and vga. Excuse me, I don't know what happened to me. In the past I thought that the keyboard and VGA were...
