Hi Wolfgang,

> SMSQE 3.36 is out. You can get it as usual on wlenerz.com/smsqe

Many thanks for your maintainance work, covering so many different machines.

Not that I actually use the Q68 FAT driver, but by chance I noticed a
configration issue. The "Fat1_ is on card =>" entry exists, but can not
be selected. ("Fat2_ is on card =>" and higher numbers work.)

I have not enough evidence to actually blame this feature, but would
recommend a little caution. I had strange issues two times, since I
tried it instead of just rebooting. In both cases, problems appeared in
connection with overwriting existing files. I had to concentrate on
other stuff, so I didn't actually investigate. Reverting to a backup
image cured it. Could be just coincidence with something else.

Please note that the mentioned FPGA update not just adds keyboard
interrupt support, but also lowers the rate in which the PS/2 ports are
sampled. At the moment we wait on more testing. Since the Q68 has no
field update for the FPGA, persons who have those (not fully PS/2
standard conforming) adapters should ask Derek.

All the best
