Ah, now that's interesting - I was trying to decide whether the next upgrade (once I've got floppies working) would be a HERMES chip or to upgrade to JS. I think a HERMES chip is around £20-£25 on SellMyRetro and Rich has a JS chipset for about £15, I think.
The floppy/ram card I've got coming is 'Trump compatible'. I know it's impossible for you to say with any certainty but do you think I would benefit from upgrading to JS asap? My goal with the QL is to try and write a few useful programs for it, in time, and I wonder if the fixes and improvements in the JS rom would make that the obvious 'next step' for me to upgrade.
