SBasic Bug Boogie

This will be a highly technical post, but as the last one got some positive feedback, why not 😉 Recently on the QL-users mailing list there was a bug discussed that if you load new Basic extensions using LRESPR within a basic PROCedure or FuNction SBasic would sometimes crash. Wolfgang did some initial research and… Read More »

Toolkit II – The sequel

Update v2.32 (2018-03-04) The basic problem is that TK2 already didn’t quite fit into 16KB during its last official versions and it became a lot worse once I packed in all the new features available in SMSQ/E. To make it fit again I had to remove something and I chose the network driver code, last… Read More »

QMake released for free

This has been a long time in the making, actually I wanted to do this many years ago, but the day is finally here: QMake is here for everybody to enjoy. QMake is a “make” tool which basically takes a linker file as input, collects all files that make up the executable and assembles any where… Read More »

German Minerva-ROM

Since changing from MGG to the Minerva ROM a few decades ago I’ve never used an unmodified Minerva ROM, I always used one where the German keyboard tables were patched into the binary somehow (by Jochen Hassler I think). This changed when I installed the QL-SD interface in my QL as it comes with a… Read More »

Of mice and men (but mostly mice)

Mice for the QL always have been kind of a problem. In the age that predated USB by two decades there was simply not the one mouse standard to rule them all. Every system did pretty much its own thing and getting a mouse that actually worked wasn’t that easy to begin with. In fact… Read More »

HomeMatic: Gehäuse/Verstärker für HM-OU-CM-PCB

English: HomeMatic home automation articles will be in German as this system is mainly used there. Den Anfang meiner (zumindest geplanten) HomeMatic Serie macht ein bereits älterer Aufschrieb über den Bau eines Gehäuses für den HM-OU-CM-PCB. Als Ausgangs-Basis dient ein bei Pollin erhältliche “Tragbarer Aktiv-Lautsprecher PULSE”. Anders als bei Pollin üblich ist das Ding auch… Read More »

QMovie v2.00

In my last post I lied that regarding the QMovie player “I’m done here”. OK, to my defense, even I didn’t know that I’m not done yet. So today I present to you QMovie v2.0: The details and downloads are on a dedicated QMovie page.

QMovie SMSQ/E movie player

This has been superseded by QMovie v2 QMovie is a quick&dirty full colour movie player including sound for QPC. I really didn’t have the time to write this, but sometimes an idea latches itself into my head and I can’t let go until I have done something about it. So the target for this was… Read More »
