Yeah, thinking often helps. ;)
I try to avoid that whenever possible. :D I do note that since I can now store all my contact information in my phone, my ability to remember phone numbers has decreased markedly. Old age has nothing to do with it (does it?)

Re: What about the latest Update?

Hmmm. I was thinking of using EBML as the basis of the state file at first, but when I started thinking about platform-neutral state files again a few weeks ago, it occurred to me that EBML may be overkill. It offers a degree of flexibility that Free42 doesn't really need, and that flexibility come...

Re: 43S News

%T might be nice (like the 12C), especially given it’s near % & Δ% . The other thing I program as a user key on most calcs is log y (x), but you may already have that on a key? Just an idea. Log x (y) is an unshifted function in EXP . %T returns - according to my information - 100 x/y. If this is t...

Re: Encoder/decoder

That's something we Windows users aren't used to. We like choosing files from dialog boxes. Not this Windows user. 8-) Keyboard shortcuts are easier, faster and not as prone to oops. And even if you do somehow oops, Ctrl-Z fixes that too. My fingers have done this for so long, I sometimes have to l...

Re: Encoder/decoder

It doesn't support uploading program listings in text files, so you have to select and copy the text (e.g. from a text editor) and paste it into the "DM42 Listing" text box of the decoder/encoder page. Egads -- it never crossed my mind that anyone would ever want to do that! I mean, how much quicke...

Is there a setting I’m missing that takes text files of program listings and encodes them?

Re: 43S News

Consider a pared down, cleaner aesthetic. Consider no letter ... at all. It seems funny to include arrows when the labels aren't arranged left and right. The shift buttons could be recognized by color alone! If anything, I'd use an up arrow since the gold functions are above the key and a down arro...

Re: PDF of DM42 Quick Reference Guide

The company that is hosting the file at the link earlier in this thread is discontinuing their public cloud offering. Therefore, we can expect that the file will no longer be available soon. Since there haven’t been any updates on this topic for a year, I’ll assume that no one is going to be upset ...

Thanks! I love Asterix. We had to read all the comics throughout my years of French classes.
