Re: The Future of the QL Wiki

Glad to see some progress is being made :) The QL Wiki is an essential resource which is currently under-used. People probably look at the wikipedia entry and rely on that as being gospel when it is actually very poor. I did try updating WIkipedia some years ago, but got banned, as they saw it as se...

Re: URGENT / IMPORTANT: BANDERSNATCH (MIA)

The character does pick up pace as you continue holding the same cursor key, which is not too bad... Oddly the drawing seems time critical -...
