If you’ve ever
had to take apart the QL and disconnected the LED wires, you may well find
yourself cursing how on earth they go back together if you didn’t remember to
make a note before removing them.
Well, Cristian on QL Forum has come up with a neat little diagram showing which order the LEDs are re-inserted. I’ll reproduce the diagram here, but the original is available from my site at http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/docs/hardware/index.html (scroll down the page to the LEDs section).
provided a wiring diagram for making a SER2 (UK connector) to DB9 adaptor lead.
The diagram is available from the same page. Scroll down the page to “Sermouse

I’ve issued an
update to my Sync program, which allows you to synchronise files across two drives.
If you have been updating media on a laptop, for example, then on getting home
you need to ensure that the latest versionsof each file are updated to be the
same on both computers.
program was written in BASIC and published as a listing in Quanta magazine some
The new version
is pointer driven and compiled with Qliberator. It requires Window Manager 2.
This new version can copy files both ways, or just one way if you prefer. Two way synchronisation takes longer but ensures that both drives contain the latest copies of each file. You can opt to process sub-directories if you wish to.
