Thanks - I was just curious as I don't know QL/E at all. I wondered whether it was unzipping or getting data over the internet, which would be very cool.
Personally though, I will mostly be using the Q68 in pure text mode, for writing SBASIC programs and maybe playing with Archive. I also might try out ACT again after all these years, now that you mention it.
With the SD Card supplied, the Q68 boot to DISP_MODE 1, 512x256 Mode 4. Which is the normal QL MOde 4 screen or Classic QL Mode as some people have been saying.
If you like this screen mode, then also try DISP_MODE 6 : 512x384 Mode 33, which gives all the extra colours and not much slow down as seen in the high resolution screen modes.
I have been using the DISP_MODE 4 : 1024x768 Mode 4, most of my programming experience is that screen resolution.
