Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.9a / DM42-3.9.1 / dm_tool-2.4

There are three files listed on the firmware page: 1. DM42-3.9.1.pgm (648KB) 2. DMCP_flash_3.9a.bin (265KB) 3. DMCP_flash_3.9a_DM42-3.9.1.bin (968KB) Is that third one the combination of 1 and 2? If so, we only need to copy #3 to the DM-42 drive, correct? Yes, that is a single image with both compo...

Re: Somehow unrelated but related...somehow

That's the fun with 9's :) If you do 1/99^2 you get all numbers from 00 to 99, exept 98 after the decimal point. 1/999^2 (1/998001), you get your result 1/9999^2 (1/99980001) and its 0000-9999 except 9998 after decimal point. And so on.. I use Maxima with bfloat command (bigfloat or large floating p...

Re: Why was Stainless Steel used for the DM42?

Stainless Steel is best since it has a very high tensile strength...It is very strong, much stronger than plain steel of the same thickness etc. That has been my experience. Why then do the stainless steel screws I use break far more readily that the plain steel ones? Stainless steel ones seem to b...

Re: Where are the calculators manufactured?

What is killing us Canadian at the moment are the exchange rates. :cry: -> from xe.com /// 1 EUR = 1.59277 CAD /// 1 CHF = 1.36122 CAD /// 1 USD = 1.28881 CAD /// I hear you man.. Since the socalled blue-blue "government" of Norway has been in charge, the Norwegian Krone (or should I say "monopoly ...

Re: How did you discover SwissMicros?

But, I'd still buy a DM41L (some time), and maybe (most probably) my disliking of the landscape will fade :) Don't count on it. Keyboard rearrangement on DM41 is an abominion. :!: Keyboard rearrangement on DM41 is an abominion. :!: Signore Massimo, if you'd say "abomination" I'd say 1+. ;) Ok, as a...

Re: DM42 Firmware V3.4 available

Thanks to David, Michael, Thomas and grsbanks for making all this happen. I've just done my very first update, from the "stock" 3.0 to 3.4a. Mostly I've been reluctant due to the very quarrelsome win10 and "unsigned drivers" and also, I've had other priorities when at home from work (seaman). Anyway...

Re: How did you discover SwissMicros?

The landscape/portrait thing doesn't come into it as far as I'm concerned; I'm equally at home with either. Thanks for your input. I have no reasonably or rational explanation of why I don't like landscape calculators. :oops: What I *definetly* don't like, is credit card size calcs. I have one, bou...

Re: How did you discover SwissMicros?

Like most, through MoHPC. Being an "RPN-aholic" since my first purchase of a used HP-28s in 1992, I actually struggle using a (according to wife) "normal" calc. Through the MoHPC I found useful help, tips an programs for my collection of HP calcs. A few threads referenced the "SwissMicros" and I got...
