Re: QL + Monitor + Memodisk expansion

I asked a while ago why the prices are so high on EBay thinking you lot were buying it up. :shock: Perhaps all the older QL users are popping their clogs from Covid19 and the families have stuck them on EBay seeing the prices make it worth selling QLs. :( sadly I think there might be some truth in ...
