I think the best idea, would be to use a neural link, where you would think of the password and touch the computer sensor pad and this would transfer the password from your brain to the computer, but there is always the chnace that someone might grab the ppassword in mid air, and crack and encryption,unless there is a "transmogifcation" process involved... this is getting very Red Dwarfish

Or even better still do not bother.

IOW, "Neuarlink" is hard science because Elon has managed to twitch a leg of a pig.
But RF BRaincan is a complete "nonsense". Even with stuff like this:
(UPDATE - as predicted, RF Brainscan is being publicly introduced)/find it on reddit/

But back OT:
How does one work with mouse on sQLx and similar packages ? I've never had a mouse on QL. I made my own interface back in the days, but didn't care to standadise it or really use it. What do I have to do, so that some old QDOS programs get to see the mouse ?


Load ptrenv from Dilwyn’s pages.

Hi,

Can adding ZIP archive files as a Qdos filesystem be implemented on sQLux, as in Qemulator.
