Yes, but the ROM does not include RS-232C BASIC.

The magazine's description says that the sending and receiving files under BASIC handled by the interface. Do why do you think there is no RS-232-C BASIC?

Some annoying spammer first spammed the main wiki page and then blanked it... How to undo this properly?

We should really ban editing the wiki to anyone who has not posted at least 10 messages in the forum. I have already seen forums do this and it is quite effective.

From 15-06-2021: Accounts to block
I think my proposal can be implemented easily & immediately? Just make clear to (new) users how they can gain access.

(But if you're fine with prolonging nuisance, extra work, vandalism & wiki history / database pollution, just leave things be(?))

There is no ideal solution. Your proposal requires manual management and whoever wants to spam it would just have to make a request and spam it immediately afterwards. Posting 10 messages requires more involvement before you can edit the wiki and the arrival of a spammer becomes easy since he would no longer go unnoticed.

HaluChaiden is the new spammer that needs to be banned.

Or as an extra step require e-mail with verification (and then have an option to make it visible on the profile as an option).

@gdx so when are those that know how to develop / technically administer this site going to implement your solution you think? My proposal is simple, how many people would actually apply? How many people actually contribute to the wiki? Answer: very little. So the manual labour here is minimal, and way better than the current damage control. Let's just wait till someone wipes the whole wiki? Of course a site admin should only give access (when requested) when a user is deemed trustworthy enough (common sense etc.)
