virtues of the Sinclair QDOS operating system to create Linux."

Sinclair QL at the tip
Hiya spec chums. I was down the tip earlier today getting rid of a load of clutter from my garage, when I saw a sinclair QL discarded in the area where people can leave stuff that others may want. Just made me smile, as I haven't seen one of those in the flesh for donkeys years. I might nip back and grab it to see if it still works. Is there much of a market for old unwanted sinclair stuff I wonder?

Sinclair QL at the tip #2
From: "Sublimosis25" <arse@nospam.com> Subject: Sinclair QL at the tip Date: 14 June 2005 18:33 Hiya spec chums. I was down the tip earlier today getting rid of a load of clutter from my garage, when I saw a sinclair QL discarded in the area where people can leave stuff that others may want. Just made me smile, as I haven't seen one of those in the flesh for donkeys years. I might nip back and grab it to see if it still works. Is there much of a market for old unwanted sinclair stuff I wonder? I sold a boxed QL for 100 quid a few years back - but maybe the markets tailed off somewhat...Also 3 'dead' machines (faulty membranes) which I sold as a job lot with some other stuff.... Boots sales were great things in the early 90's, Vectrex, newbrain, PET 2001's, Enterprise 128 etc, all picked up for a song :-) jb wrote: > From: "Sublimosis25" <arse@nospam.com> > Subject: Sinclair QL at the tip > Date: 14 June 2005 18:33 > > Hiya spec chums. > > I was down the tip earlier today getting > rid of a load of clutter from my garage, when I saw a sinclair QL > discarded in the area where people can leave stuff that others may want. > Just made me smile, as I haven't seen one of those in the flesh for > donkeys years.

Sinclair QL Microdrive help required
Hi, First time poster to this newsgroup. I'm looking for somebody who can make my copy of the Psion Quill program on microdrive cartridge work again. It (and all the backups) have become corrupted. The drive itself is fine (everything else works okay). I will send the original microdrive cartridge, a blank microdrive cartridge and a pre-paid return address envelope to whomever can copy their working Quill microdrive cartridge onto my two (one for backup). Thank-you. Paul.

I... take it you don't have a memory expansion and floppy controller card (and drives) then? If you had, I'd've recommended you get Xchange, the psion integrated suite, all 4, archive, abacus, easel and quill along with a "task sequencing language" glued together to allow transfer of data between the 4.

SINCLAIR QL's 25th birthday
On January 12th 1984 Sir Clive Sinclair presented the Sinclair QL Professional Computer in a Hollywood-style launch event at the Intercontinental Hotel, Hyde Park Corner, London. This was exactly 12 days earlier than Steve Jobs presented the Apple Macintosh. Today, 25 years later we congratulate and celebrate the 25th birthday of the Sinclair QL! http://www.qlvsjaguar.homepage.bluewin.ch/SinclairQL_25th_anniversary_1984_to_2009.html The QL still is a very good example of an innovative, stylish, powerful and underestimated product. On one hand it failed in the market in the long run but on the other it influenced many developments which ended in today's products. At least in seven aspects the QL was a real Quantum Leap: 1. First 32bit micro for both home and office use (Motorola MC68K CPU). 2. First PC with preemptive multitasking operating system with linear addressing, Windows and Mac OS offered those important features only years to decades later. The QL could run hundreds of jobs in parallel. 3. First PC with bundled Office suite (PSION XCHANGE offering word processing, spreadsheet, business graphics and database). 4. First PC with a highly integrated two chip North-/Southbridge, IBM and Apple still used dozens of standard chips. 5. Innovative and timeless industrial design (case, motherboard and keyboard), Sony's Playstation 2 or some later Apple designs look very similar. 6. Innovative SuperBASIC Programming Language for Rapid Application ...
