Ah, I see. Ah well, I've always been a bit backward, so it's kind of appropriate :lol:


I've been staring at it for a while now and can't see it. It looks forward to me so it may be one of those optical illusions that some folks can't see.

I can't see it on my desktop PC, but can on the new, slower laptop. That might be why I didn't understand what Ralf meant at first. There may also be an element of graphics performance of the computer concerned which contributes to the effect as well as some people more able to notice it than others.

Mug (or indeed the coffee) not included ;)

I'm looking to install it over the weekend. My QL is rather prone to key bounce, so hopefully this solves it.

A little while ago, for my 74th birthday I received :

1/ I discovered recently that there was a japanese company that still made slide rules (especially circular ones), and I always dreamed of such a device : here it is, together with my original "computing device" that I was offered for Xmas in 1963.

2/ for travelling with my Raspberry Pi zeroW and only an HDMI cable to plug into a TV, I found this little "folding" bluetooth keyboard + mouse pad :
Keyb-Pad.jpg

3/ to use the same display (with 2 HDMI inputs) I offered my QL this SCART/HDMI to HDMI converter.

So now, I can use the same display, switching between either my bbQL (here running full screen) or uQLx running in a window on Raspberry Pi zeroW :
bbQL-uQLxPi0.jpg

with either a classic keyboard + mouse or the little folding bug.

BYE Paul

Can someone put the disk on Dilwyn's site, or here? I have an Hermes, but not the disk.
