Do I just use the Contact Us page?

Also, it says tht membership is free - is that correct? I had no idea that change had been made.


Yes - on the contacts page, on that first drop down there is membership secretary - I think that's what I used. I think things take a little while ;-) I haven't paid anything yet- I was hoping to be able to unlock the quanta library CD - but still waiting for a reply on that one.

I assume quanta membership is free - I have not paid anything, and you can download a lot of the back issues as pdf format - there is some useful info in there.

It’s not free if you want a printed copy of the magazine. I don’t know about the other membership levels. I think there may be more details in the PDF copies of the magazines.

Membership is now free for those willing to receive the magazine as a PDF file by email. Or you can still opt to pay for printed paper copies if you prefer.

The signup screen is the JOIN QUANTA item from the MEMBERS menu:

Thanks Dilwyn! Hah, hah - way too obvious now you mention it - I assumed the Members option was for existing members and must have discarded it without thinking. :P

Sadly not (from either of my application attempts).

OK, thanks everyone. I was wondering whether a reply had been missed in the spam folder or something.

I seem to remember it being said in another place that QUANTA was on hiatus due to COVID-19.

I dunno if any of the sub-groups are still active but there's no chance of anyone meeting-up with all the lockdowns etc.
(Also applies to committee meetings, AGM etc.)
(Anyone ever got a webcam to work with the QL ?)

Last issue of mag on the website is from 2016.

I picked up some from 2017 but not seen anything since - judging from other posts it was still going last year.

The bank balance in 2017 looked pretty healthy, so I doubt they've run out of money.

Is there enough happening to justify trying to get a bi-monthly e-zine going - nothing excessive, just a compilation of news, letters, pleas for help, product reviews, emulator stuff, programming etc.

(No i'm not volunteering - too long on a keyboard and RSI kicks in.)
