Re: Testing Tetroid backplane and GC

I have similar problems with Tetroid Backplane kit + QubIDE + (Super)GoldCard. I have tried different configurations as it appears in QubIDE manual, but don't work.

Re: QL-SD news

Good news!! Congratulations Marcel.

Please put me on the list for one (with dual-card adapter version it would be fine).

I have an original QL-SD, so I am also interested in an update.

Re: Q68 New users and general usage thread

Very nice :) But a shame youre not getting the best out of your shiny new machine: I notice it still sports the sad old four-colour themes, but perhaps eighties retro is desirable? I wouldnt know. Hi pjw, ... Yes, the "new" GD2 systems are very nice (I like BlackBird a lot) , ... but I am...

Re: Tetroid interfaces hardware info

Another proposal for Tetroid, a standalone "slimm" QubIDE version (only QubIDE, no passthrough, no RAM or floppy expansion, it should be very thin and low consumption).

What about the power supply for Q68? Is it easy to get one in online store?

Derek , do you have Q68 power supplies available for sale?
