Re: Found an LCD monitor that works

This is a handy list of monitors that have been tested:

Re: how to get multiple colors on a zx spectrum 48k

i find that somewhat distasteful, i expect to be respected just like anyone else. of course, it may not be the case, either way, safety first. remember the I Love You Virus? no i am not drunk, just somewhat anxious.

Re: Utilize more than 1GB from SD Card UltraSatan

HDDriver should let you make up to 13 partitions.

your ultrasatan has two card slots. partition the top card however you like in Atari format, then get a 128/256/512k etc card and format that TOS/DOS and it'll be readable on a pc too, then use it as a 'swap' disk in the second slot.

Tons of support on GFA BASIC here.

because god knows how much money it will cost, not to mention my room, which is a clusterf**k

besides, i prefer emulation. cheaper and faster



then just use gfa basic in an st emulator.

Re: Scanners of the old school.

I don't have software/info on your model, but while testing a different scanner I used the software in this link, which worked fine
