H2X's scheme gets my vote, but perhaps with black around the function keys too.

I think black or grey function keys would look better too.
Feel free to sketch your proposals :)

Yes, it looks weird with the black/white split across the background.

So how is it that you have to click on the word "image" in my post, but it shows the image on yours?
I enclosed the url in the square brackets that you get when you click on the image button. BBC code is on, [img] is on.

Re: Noob Questions

Press [Σ+] to toggle between DMY and MDY modes in the date settings dialog. See the release notes of the V3.3 firmware for more details. You can also use DMY and MDY in the function catalog to set the date format. That also works on other implementations of Free42 (on your smartphone, for example).

Re: INPUT command lifts stack

I don't know what the real HP-42S does, although the manual does not list INPUT as one of the commands that disables stack lift. Pragmatically, it is probably unwise for a program to rely on the the T, Z, Y stack contents after an INPUT, as the user might have messed around with the stack contents t...

Re: buttons that don't register well

I'm glad you got to the bottom of it. Did you need a fiberscope to see what was going on?

I may risk dismantling my calculator one more time to fix it once the video has been posted. We have a hot-air gun at work somewhere!

Re: Free42 web site has moved

It looks like some registrar is squatting on free42.com, but free42.org seems to be available!
