Re: NameCheck

Hi everyone [Arguably going off-topic - or rather expanding upon this specific and valid use-case that Dilwyn's solution aims to address...] I would also like to encourage exploring MasterBasic in this context - fundamentally it works 'within' the SBASIC environment, thus knows the context of each n...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Hi gbejniet! Great news - thanks for sharing, Out of interest, is this still the AH-ROM based QL you are testing with and did you select 'QL' or 'ZX' as the 'peer-type'? (The choice of peer-type now directly influences the timing-constants used by the QLUB - no longer the file-header handling with i...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Hey Stephan! Thanks for testing the new versions of firmware and SendFileMQ :-) OK, so a couple of questions regarding your Unix/Wine tests: a) Did you use the latest SendFileMQ? Previous versions (v1.4..1.7) will NOT work with the latest firmware as I have adjusted the format of each command 'messa...

Re: Ethernet for the QL

Hi Dave! Following on from Tobias, I still see value in the basic hardware interface code being held in a ROM - the generic TCP/IP stack being loaded in to RAM. That way, the physical/device-specific registers etc could be 'found' in the traditional manner by the on-board code, and these low-level p...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Hi Norman! I forgot to acknowledge your kind feedback on the "Networking the QL" article - thank you! A most enlightening read. I've never used the QL network at all -- other than to test if WinBack could backup over the network. (It could!), I wasn't too clued up on the workings of it. I ...

Re: QLUB Adapter - Initial Release...

Hi everyone! After quite a bit more testing by Stephan and others here and further refinements to both the QLUB Adapter firmware and companion 'file-transfer' program SendFileMQ, please find attached v2.2a of the QLUB solution. Whilst the full integration with QDOS/SMSQE is still in progress, this i...

Re: Ethernet for the QL

Hi Dave! The only thing I'm unclear on is if it should carry a 16K EPROM or not. And if so, where should the EPROM be positioned in the memory map? The perennial expansion question... If attached to a BBQL, the only options are either to occupy the usual 16K slot at 0C000, or else to carve-out 16K f...
