Re: A guide to programming the Sinclair QL

Hi, I can see one problem porting C programs to QLs. C language allows you to construct code in a huge number of ways. For example just consider FOR loops : Converting C FOR loops to QL Basic FOR loops would probably need to be done by hand, as I doubt whether software could do it, there being just...

Re: Star Trek Discovery

Your missing the point, the beginning of ToS and TNG were ropey as hell. Discovery suddenly made them look like cinematic master pieces.
