Re: [Ql-Users] SMSQmulator 2.28

2020-03-04 Thread Kjartan Geble Olsen via Ql-Users

Hi,

With help from Wolfgang and some googling on my own there are now two
different solutions to this problem.
Wolfgang supplied me with a new smsqmulator which was able to keep up, and  
I found
the programming manual to the scanner family on the net which enabled me  
to reduce

its typing speed.

Hi,
 does the scanner send ENTER at the end of the scan process?


Yes.
It's read like an ordinary keyboard, input"Scan item ",a$
This works fine in uqlx and qpc under wine.
I assume that it types too fast for SMSQmulator to keep up.

 uQlx makes no attempt to emulate a keyboard. It just directly fills
the QDOS input buffers.

 And that's fine - SMSQmulator on the other hand doesn't keep up..

 I'm curious, how does uqlx handle multiple keystrokes such as
CTRL+ALT+Shift + left?

That reminds me of the good old days of the MausNet. That was quite a 
good time just receiving mails in the morning and in the evening.

I've just ordered Schottky diodes for the operation 'Q68-net'.
I followed the discussion on the QL forum about fitting network sockets to
the Q68 case. This doesn't look very straightforward. I think removing the
on/off switch and mounting the network socket there will be the best
solution with minimal impact (I only need one network socket).
Or is there a simple way to convert the sound output socket to a network
socket with minimal damage?

For users without a Q68, QBOX's FidoNet technology network utilities might
be a better way to exchange files without having to log in to a BBS and
manually downloading each file. I'll upload them asap. This way you could
transfer files by putting them on hold as attachments and use POLL/MAIL to
get them off the BBS. Oh well, I first thought the FidoNet utils would be
useless these days but now there still seems to be a use case for them :-).

If you have no problem with network plugs on the front side, then I'd
recommend drilling a hole to the front panel.

It is even possible without *any* damage, but you would lose sound. Some
tinkering would be involved, drilling a hole is definitely easier.
