Re: Eidersoft (M)ICE Eprom question.

I've had to get quite angry with some people (all in the English speaking world) As opposed to the Welsh speaking world, you mean? ;) :D I hope that was intended as a joke as I find the reply extremely offensive.

Tim Swenson's original QLirc demo originally released here was taken and developed with his blessing, thanks Tim. I've enhanced the program now to the poi...

Re: KryoFlux USB floppy controller

Not directly related to the original title of this thread, as others have shared their floppy disc information, here's my contribution. I have two USB floppy drives, the first an unbranded Chinese one just vaguely marked "FD-05PUB" (identified by Windows as a "Mitsumi USB FDD 061M&quo...
