expensive QL case

Postby 1984 » Wed Jul 21, 2021 9:25 pm

There is an interesting item on ebay, called “Sinclair QL + Sinclair Spectrum Case” (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/274874955842). The photo suggests that multitasking is limited to four tasks, and the item seems to be “green tech”. But as a QL case, shouldn't it be black?

Hi,

Looks like it can only have 4 jobs at once, then there will be a queue.

Not sure if the queue is a linked list...


Regards,

Derek

...it may be, if it is self-referential and if you send it by email (https://xkcd.com/2483/) using IETF RFC 1149 (https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc1149), but then it may be limited to pigeons.
