On the look-out for Sinclair QL Personalities

Postby RWAP » Tue May 27, 2014 10:24 pm

I thought I would start a list of the QL personalities we would like to try and track down in order to discuss the re-release of software.

For starters there are:

Steve Sutton - APT / ACT, Lightning, Perfection
Arrakis (Ian Williams) - QL Meteor Storm, QL Jabber, Orbit
Jurgen Falkenberg - various QL hardware
Aholasoft (Jussi Koskinen) - Sam the Little Spaceman
PCBS - Heart of Gern / The Talisman
Byteback (Richard Millen) - Quest for the Dragonsword
Martin S R of Pigsty Software, Bishtopston, near Bristol
Maurice Computers of Thirsk, North Yorkshire (anyone know who ran this ?)

Ron Massey - who wrote a lot of reviews for Sinclair QL World - wonder what happened to all of the software and hardware he had?

There are probably many others - but if people can try to find these then it would help!

Ralf - it might be easier if you could send him a letter in German - I will email you the text (in English)

THanks

VP,
There's a Daimlerstrasse in pretty much any settlement in SW Germany - And, no, they're typically in the center of some industrial estate ;)

Hehe, I always found it odd how the two Daimler companies are loosely related but separate. I'd like an Arthur Daley Daimler :)

OT: :D even in Italy in all cities there is a street or a place with name "Roma" (capital) and "Agnelli" (founder of FIAT)


Only original hardware! :)

I live on the Daimler green housing estate in Coventry, which was up until about 15 years ago a Daimler factory..... so not just Germany.

Cheers.
