Re: Issue 8 discussions...

Okay, back on topic when is the Issue 8 board going be available.

Can the operation system be changed from the supplied system.

What I mean is in the future someone may write an update the QL system.

Will all QL software run on the the system.

Re: Long File Name device driver

Hi Martin,

Your new Long File Name device driver looks really good.

I used to use QVFS, but it was quite hard to use.

I will try your device on the Q68, which runs SMSQ/E v3.34, so should work the same way.

Re: Issue 8 discussions...

Hi Dave, I would think it is very unprofessional to disclose customer information. I put a serial number on the Q68 PCB and Case, which had the model number, batch number and unit number. So I find your comments on this silly. I hope you can sell 100s of boards, I took a cautious approach to Q68 sal...

Re: Issue 8 discussions...

Hi David, With regards to your question: I am following this thread with interest. Do you mind telling us how many Q68s have been sold, and the batch quantities they are made in? I do not think I can publish this information, but everyone that showed interest in a Q68, purchased one. The batch quani...

Re: Issue 8 discussions...

Hi, I would also be an issue 8 buyer, when it comes to the market. Not see the countdown lately... The production cost of the Q68 would lower if I made the Q68 in batches of 100. I also think that the designer of any hardware should pass the constriction to someone with the construction skills to pe...

Re: ULTRA GOLD CARD

Hi,

When I would visit a QL Show, I always asked Stuart about the Ultra Gold Card or Diamond Card... Stuart always said there was no development on this.

I guess he was being diplomatic...

Maybe the new Issue 8 board can fill this void, assuming it is not vapourware.

Re: ULTRA GOLD CARD

Hi Fabrizio, I am glad you like the Q68 and still have a working Q60. I remebered that you ran a web server on the Q60. Does that still work? I was given the Aurora PCB file in Protel99SE format, which I have converted to Altium Designer 16 format and was going make some more Aurora boards. But the ...
