Re: Optimal Flatscreen monitors for QL and Q68

Hi, Nice picturesof the Q68, but the clock is not set to the correct date. You need to set the date with the SDATE command and then execute the Q68 Set RTC programme: EX "win1_q68_q68setrtc" This will set the Q68 Runtime Clock. I mainly use an HP LE1901w monitor on the Q68, which has nativ...

Re: Internet and the QL

Hi,

It looks great. But a little expensive, when a Radpberry PI Zero and USB to Serial adapter can be bought for under £12.00

Re: New Minerva ROMs for Q68

The discussion was about 1024x768 resolution in MODE 4 without modifying the Minerva screen driver. It's probably possible (it can be done under uqlx with Minerva) but with extra front-end code in the extension ROM area. Jan. Hi Jan, I mainly use the Q68 in DISP_MODE 4 (1024x768 Mode 4) on SMSQ/E. ...

Re: My First QL related video. QLWorld Magazine Unboxing.

HI,

I am glad the magazines arrived okay in the USA, as shipping to the USA is sometime a problem.

The Maplins box came from some Maplins PC Case AT style, Beige in colour. Left over from the Q60 production. I have 6 of these cases and boxes.
