Indeed. Causes one minor problem, solves many. With the Issue 8 having internet connectivity, it would be easy for new software to do all kinds of online distribution, automatic or manual updates, have downloadable content larger than the QL could hold, do online registration. All in all, a much nic...
I'll explain why I decided to not include microdrives on the Issue 8: 1. If Sinclair redesigned the QL for a version 2 any time from late 1984 onwards it would have had a 3.5" floppy instead of microdrives. 2. Anyone who has microdrives and floppies or HDs uses microdrives barely at all. 3. 33 ...
The machine that has the SuperIO would have wifi and 10/100 ethernet and would not have the 8302/8049. I don't know if sernet would be supported by the hardware or not, but I don't think it would be as useful.

It meets the PC97/98 standard, which means the code in SMSQ will run with very very little rework the 87307 which also meets the PC97/98 standard.
Has anyone ever implemented a 16550 UART and software to use it on a QL before? The two designs I saw previously for external serials used a 6402 and a 68328. If code to use the 16550 register set/layout exists already, can someone point it out to me?
I don't know. I can honestly say I have no fondness for microdrives. I was actually physically bullied over them as a teenager. The other kids were playing with their shiny new 3.5" drives in 1985 when I got my first QL from Dixon's. I think it's fair to say I equate microdrives with asbestos, ...
