Re: Paul Farrow's website?

How strange. If I try the link for Chrome, IExplorer and Edge it does not work. I cannot even access PlusNet's main site. Even a PING to www.plus.net just times out. I am using BT Broadband - surely they have not blocked the site.

Paul Farrow's website?

Hi Folks,

Does anyone know what has happened to Paul Farrow's website:

www.fruitcake.plus.com/

The link no longer works. Has Paul changed his URL for example?

Many thanks

Re: Bug Fixed ROM

Strange, the line ‘IF 1/2<>0.5 THEN PRINT “Bug”’ works in Basinc i.e. it does not print Bug? Is there actually a bug there? Comparing floating point numbers for equality is generally a bad idea on any computer. Is that what it's doing? Apparently this test should produce “Bug” on a standard 48K Spe...

Re: Bug Fixed ROM

Hi Folks, As Paul pointed out, if you are going to use the ROM with Basinc then you need to be VERY careful as it relies on code being in the right place! As of today, the modified ROM has the following features: +------------------------------------------------------------------------------+ | THE ...

Re: Bug Fixed ROM

Hi Paul,

Yes, I read that whilst researching changes to the ROM. Personally, it is not a problem for me as I do not play many games and if I do then switching back to the standard ROM is not a big thing.

Many thanks

Re: Bug Fixed ROM

Thanks everyone. I was wondering if the Spectrum Community (re. Z80 experts! ;)) would like to collaborate on making a modified 48K ROM that has a few changes but remains compatible. So far I have made the following simple changes to the standard 48K ROM: The Spectrum Forum 48K ROM =================...

Bug Fixed ROM

Hi Folks, Is there a bug fixed 48K ROM that is totally compatible with the original? I have searched the internet but the ROMs I have found all seem to have extra functionality. I want to use this ROM in BasinC so it needs to have the same entry points. BTW, this is a great forum but how does it rel...

Re: ZX Vega+ Discussion

Watched the video and I have to say I cannot believe RCL sent these devices out. The packaging alone is unbelievable - what a load of tosh calling it ethical! As for the device itself - total junk and an insult to Rick Dickinson's original concept and memory. I cannot believe I fell for this one and...
