Agree. I've been working with one the last few days and the speed made the QL bearable :-) >> Well, there's Nasta, I've got the impression he knows the QL better >> than its original designers, though he seems to be impaired by his own >> perfectionism. > Also let's not forget that living in Eastern or Western Europe made > a big difference at the time Nasta announced his GoldFire. I remember that he was working on it while living in the US, I've met him there. After 9/11 he had to move back and I think that's what killed it for good. > I don't know about Stuart Honeyball's early hardware, but indeed it > seems that he hardly talked about his large projects until they were > practically finished.

That's the reason I have built a prototype of a bus-snooper that mirrors the QL screen on an HDMI monitor, but... damn it, now that you know I will never finish it :-) Cheers, Marcel _______________________________________________ QL-Users Mailing List
