Re: QL 34th Anniversary new hardware.

Re: Wanted 2 x PSU + R and F5 keycap 1 rom port cover and 2 expansion port covers

I have spare key caps - £1 each plus postage (including a replacement pillar which they sit on, because it is often due to these wearing that the key cap falls off).

Re: Microperipherals Floppy Interface R/W

I get mixed results because Windows lacks proper DD disk support (after WIndows XP); plus a USB floppy disk drive lacks a proper disk controller.
