Re: Sinclair QL computer bundle to include zx81

Re: Okoloko Engineering Software

I wrote to Samson some years ago - Dave has also now reached out to him by telephone.

Re: SMSQ/E sources - mirror git repository

Re: Ultrasoft Software

I have again been speaking wiht Martin - it looks as though there is more software etc to be uploaded to Dilwyn's website. There are some issues with the QL Wiki entry on Ultrasoft, which I have tried to correct. The hardware by Ulrich "Uli" Rosowski was not sold by Martin - so do we know ...
