[Ql-Users] QL-SD News

2013-12-04 Thread Peter
Hi,

the restriction that a QL memory expansion is madatory for QL-SD has been 
removed.

If a QL-SD filesystem of 3 MB size (and Groupsize 8) is attached, there 
still remains 62.5 KB free memory on an unexpanded QL. Not very much, but 
enough to load TK2 and still be able do useful things.

This way, even an unexpanded QL has more mass storage than the ED floppy 
interface of a (Super) Gold Card offers, and that at harddisk speed 
without moving mechanical parts.

(Larger filesystems, like the 64 MB default, can not be used on an 
unexpanded QL at all. This won't change.)

Hi Peter

If it helps in gaining a measure outside Germany, I would be interested in 
2/3 QL-SD units.

At the moment QL-SD is only available within Germany, orders through the
German QL Forum. Current price is EUR 60 including a preformattet SDHC
card, Minerva operating system and drivers EPROM, Microdrive slot access
unit and shipment. QL-SD is in a phase of testing, gathering experience,
improving the manual, and investigating the (Super) Gold Card issues.

Should experiences and pre-orders be encouraging, the next batch is
planned prior to the German Sinclair meeting in April.

Why not have a QL Show in each country and we support each other...



Hi folks,



back on the QL retro track (after being busy with the JAGUAR for a while) I
would like to share my thoughts about a QL-is-30 event. I already had some
email back and forth with Rich last spring.



1. The QL (community) definitely deserves such an event.



2. Such an event should be hold in the home country of Sinclair and the QL,
in England.



3. It should be an international event, addressing visitors from all over
the world.



4. It should be held at an attractive place/city where beside the show
visitors (and their families) can enjoy other activities may it be
historical, cultural or just shopping/dining.


snip


Just my two pennies...



QL forever!



Cheers, Urs


Think I could Sell my PM version QL for enough to make the event???
