Did you try using the mdv2_ roller in mdv1_

Re: QDOS For Amiga

Did anyone try QDOS For Amiga on one of the Vampire accelerators? The Amiga userbase is still quite large and active and surely there might be some merit in working together on projects. I was recently watching the startup of QDOS for Amiga and noticed it could (for example), benefit from the new Qu...

Re: MDV1_: dead or alive?

Over the years, I generally have come across more QLs with a faulty mdv1_ and working mdv2_ than the other way around. This is because of the extra wear and tear on mdv1_ from loading programs.

Re: Sinclair QL computer bundle to include zx81

Hi - any chance you could take some photos of the Eidersoft disk interface and disk system for the QL Wiki?

I have a manual but have never seen the disk system itself.

Is the source code available for Front Page?

Re: Okoloko Engineering Software

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

What happened to all of the US QL software?

Re: Front Page

I do indeed have a manual for Front Page v1.01 (plus the solution to Nick Ward's wreck dive) which could be scanned in.

Any volunteers?
