That reminds me I must pull the QL out and give it a power on. Nice Sinclair collection.
If you don't have a Super Miracle Gold card for your QL @rubber_jonnie I can recommend the clone one that is available on sell my retro

I don't have one, that one looks good though I'm not sure I could justify the price vs the amount I use it........

Hmmm, but it would be nice!

Yeah, Tetroid is a genius. I have one of his SGC clones for one of my machines. It's a pity that he cut out the second floppy interface and parallel port though.

But it is boxed :) I sold my spare one for cash money.

Got quite a few add in cards, plus a double FDD and mouse. I also want the SD card replacement for the microdrive. Too many things to buy!!

If you get the vDriveQL you'll need a vMap too. Can I spend all your money for you? hehe.

Current shopping list seems to be:

1. Floppy EMU for the A2e
2. SCG for the QL
3. vDriveQL for the, well, QL
4. vMap for the QL

I seem to be capable of spending my own money thanks!

Oh, did I mention I have this on the way: https://www.tindie.com/products/garrett ... apple-iie/ for the A2?

Sell it on eBay and buy a second house. :lol:
