Either German and/or a software developer and/or computer geek.

Wish I hadn't resurrected this thread now ;)

Hi Chr$,

I would worry about off-topic thread corruption, this seems to be a symtom of the Forum.

Did you get your problem with understanding how the Q68 works?

Oh yes, everything is fine at the moment. I have a nice setup consisting of an original QL that is black and quite boxy and a Q68, both connected via QLNET and both outputting crisp VGA on a switch so they share the same monitor. Excellent for space saving.


Collector of original and some newer QL related computers, accessories and software even though I don't understand how any of them work.
Original BBQL's: 3x German, 1x UK model (plus quite a bit of other old stuff)
Custom AT cased QL system with Gold Card, Qimi mouse, Hermes and MFM HDD
PC with QXLII card installed
Q68 also present

Ask me about near NOS re-felted good quality Microdrive Carts - many available.

Technically Qimi / Minerva / Hermes / QL-SD are all expansions within the machine, and some AT keyboard interfaces fitted internally too - but the 'computer' was still the long black brick.
EXACTLY. My first QL is inside a desktop case, with GoldCard, QIMI, Hermes, DIY (controller) 130 MByte RLL Harddisk (with Dirk Steinkopf hard disk driver) AND a 100% compatible QL keyboard (built it myself, cutting all connections on the keyboard PCB, and rewired myself. The cable [very thin] was also self made, "Fädeldraht in Schrumpfschlauch"). But because of BBQL limited to 512x256 in 4 colours :-(
