Blimey, £100! Normally I would snap them up, but on this occasion I'll leave it to someone else as I have enough to be getting on with. Even though I could probably find someone to collect them, I don't think they would be close enough to Romford to abide by the current rules.

In fact, it must be tricky selling anything at the moment.

Hello Phil,

though living too far away to buy the items, I would like to know what revisions the four QLs are. May you post the four serial numbers (Dxx-xxxxxx on the bottom), please?

Would love to get the completely dead machine to Adrian of Adrian's Digital Basement. Noel and I had talked about getting him a dead QL during November. Would be interesting to see him debug a QL.

I may have another dead QL but will need to sort out more boxes from the garage :)

Dear Phil,

thank you very much.

Especially D14-103080 (between D15-102325 and D15-108201 already mentioned in this forum) is interesting cause it confirms that the D14 and D15 revisions were produced concurrently, like the D09 and D10 revisions.

I'm assuming you wouldn't want too much for a 5th broken one. I would PayPal you postage (plus anything additional) if you would be willing to pack it up and send it to an address in the US (not mine but Adrian's who lives in Oregon I believe). I don't think it would need a power supply since he couldn't use it anyway (it seems you only had 2 PU's for 4 QL's and likely they were UK). Royal Mail can actually be pretty reasonable in my experience.

It would be neat to see him try and repair a completely broken QL (so the more non-working the better -- i.e. bad keyboard membranes are just a simple part replacement but no screen and no boot-up would be perfect). He's got an audience of close to 100K so great to have that many folks getting a look at a QL. Plus he'd likely fix it so that would rescue a dead one :-/
