Re: "New" SD interface

This card is very very interesting. I hope you can solve the issues related to the software. I take this opportunity to thank Tetroid for his work, and remember the good work that José Leandro and Habi did from Spain with his QubIDE clone . Hi, I bought one of José Leandro expansion cards, which is...

Re: vDrive by vRetro (Charles Ingley) Unboxing Video

Hi TJ,

I also fitted a 68RC040 to the QXLII, which gave it an internal CPU based FPU. I only have used the SMSQ or SMSQ/E QXL application from DOS, not Windows. Never really used the...

Re: Designing 3-D cases: vDrive & Q68

Hi, The Q68 QLNET connection is derived from the internal Q68 expansion port. I started to fit a male 2 x 12 DIL X 2mm connector to allow simple connection to the Q68 expansion port. The placement of the Q68 QLNET connectors are proving a little bit hard to incorporate into the Q68 case. Where I hav...

Re: PSU Question - Better safe than sorry

HI,

The voltages are the same, so just put a EU plug on the end, or fit a UK-EU adaptor.

The UK Colours are:

Brown : Live
Blue: Neutral

Earth maybe not fitted.
