Re: DM42 License Statement

The only remaining issue that I could imagine existing would be if they put code in the OS part that belongs in the Free42 part, but I don't think that's the case. Again, I haven't looked at everything yet, but it looks like the OS API defines functionality along lines that are reasonable for an OS...

[...]I was deliberately running the battery down to see how the machine behaved with such a low power supply. Is 1.90 volts the lowest you have seen? Have you replaced the battery yet?

I can see them, but I'm not grokking them. Translating m c ↑ 2 × E - to algebraic yields 2 * m^c - E... Maybe that's a famous equation, but not one I recognize.

Re: buttons that don't register well

Would it be possible for there to be a quick video tutorial so we know what we to bend and how much please? I'll try making a video this weekend... Did you get a video made? My Enter key is reliable only if I screw in the large-headed screws just enough to catch the threads without tightening them ...
