Re: World Cup 2018 Including Patio Chair Sweepstakes

Russia doesn't have Patio Chairs - They tend to throw 3-feet logs around.

Re: WTD: UK layout USB keyboard

One thing that has come out of this: the discussion of where we might insert a Euro symbol into the QL ASCII map? That discussion has already ended: SMSQ/E puts the € character at CHR$(181) The key combination associated with that character is <CTRL><SHIFT>U. I don't see a point in changing this. T...

You need to ask for written permission whether you can store the answer, and need to explain what you intend to do with it ;)

Re: QDOS For Amiga

I did. (Rather, I tried "QDOS Classic for Amiga", which is the same, but newer thing) And, yes: It works. And fast (If working on a white keyboard instead of a black one is not too disturbing to your mind). "Feels" close to QPC on a fast PC. Still need to get some benchmarks goin...

Re: SMSQ/E sources - mirror git repository

Obviously, holding the sources in now 3 (!) different places (it is absolutely not clear to me why it needs to be on GitHub twice, btw) holds the danger of splitting SMSQ/E development into various branches, especially when people don't know where the master is stored. I don't even dare to think wha...

Re: Random obscure survey...

I'm with Derek. I try to stay away from floppies as far as possible. I'll only use them as last resort when I can't get files transferred otherways. My GC QL has made a quantum leap in usability (sic) with QLSD and Wolfgang's new drivers.

Your picture quality is incredibly good considering you are using the modulator.

Re: What is APL rom cartridge ?

Nice find, and nice achievement, Rich! (Although most of the language is more than Greek to me, I think APL is the only programming language that is as hard to read as it is to write). I once worked in a Uni institute for fluid dynamics, where most of the numerical problems were solved (? - not real...

Re: Q68 New users and general usage thread

And coming back to the original question - which was about creating QLWA file systems on an SD card - it shouldn't be necessary to install an emulator - free or otherwise to achieve that. It isn't. You were given some hints above you can do everything from Q68 directly, without having to refer to a...
