Re: HDB-DOS for Dragon 32 and 64/Tano

The fast load version on page one of this thread did the trick. A timely reminder to myself to read the readme properly next time. Thanks very much.

Re: HDB-DOS for Dragon 32 and 64/Tano

I've spent a couple of hours today trying to get Drivewire 3/4 + usb serial invertor by Tormod + PC (Windows 8 / Linux) working with my Tano Dragon. When I first tried the serial connector a few months ago, I had one or two successful connections with Drivewire 3. I could read .dsk images using HDB-...

Re: I/O Cartridge (Show and Tell)

Is it sensible to look at pulling apart a surplus PCI adapter to get the correct edge connector size and contacts, then connect up the remainder using a stripboard?

Re: I/O Cartridge (Show and Tell)

Forth on Dragon

I have been trying to find "how to" information on editing commands and usage of Dragon-specific Forth words for Dragon Forth and Tele Forth.

Thanks, I thought I had tried that possibility but obviously got the spacing wrong. Remarkable program!
