Re: QL 34th Anniversary new hardware.

Today was a deeply frustrating day, characterised by failed programing of a group of GALs. I have found the cause of the problem and ordered a part that should resolve it (and a few other parts that could resolve it in different ways too, just for thoroughness.) Friday and Saturday morning are going...

Keyboard membrane connectors.

I have found reliable sources of the 9- and 11-pin membrane connectors here in the US. I can order in quite small or large quantities and the items are standard stock items. It works out around $2.50 for a matched pair for a QL. They also have all the other standard sizes. I have ordered 10 of each ...

Re: Miracle Super Gold card

To my mind, QL-SD and QubIDE, when using the exact same driver appear to the QL as exactly the same thing.

Except QL-SD media is cheaper, more reliable, and ubiquitous.

Online Chat Event: Saturday, 8pm!

I'll be explaining my, err, new thing, and doing a live video feed to demonstrate it. It is pretty cool.

Be there or be somewhere else.

Re: QL 34th Anniversary new hardware.

That feeling when you get out your PLCC-20 to DIP-20 adapter to program a GAL, and it's..... DEFECTIVE. And you look online, and you could have one tomorrow, but it'll be $150, plus $40 shipping. Or you could order one from China, but it'll be 21+ days. So you buy a PCB printer CNC milling machine. ...
