The case of my DM42 was preventing my USB cable from seating fully into the socket. I had to trim a bit of the plastic off of the connector on my cable. It now works 100% of the time.
Same with mine.

Re: DM42 skin for the Free42 simulator

... I was marveling at how excited I was back in 1986, when I added an HD20 to my Macintosh. That's a 20 MB hard disk. :D I remember when I bought the first PC for my family, also with a 20MB HDD. At that time I could not imagine that we would ever fill this volume. Those were the times ... then ca...

Re: DM41X

The DM42 is a HP-42S near-clone, too, but offering a lot more than the original. Well, maybe not a lot, but a significant amount of new p...

Re: DM41X

Thanks, Dave and Mark! Perhaps CONF shows the configuration screen as seen on Godwin's post (#2) in the DM41X thread on the MoHPC . I've seen said display on the picture as a test screen showing some status ... it displays "testing" at its top. Though it seems some people were involved in the layout...

Another guess: CST = CUSTOM ? But we have USeR already... :?
CONF smells like CONFIRM but not seen on the HP-41Cx AFAIK. :?
1. Correct, but not the same as USER
2. Incorrect.
Thanks, Bob, for clarifying #1.
For #2, which part of my statement is incorrect? :?

If I press f-shift followed by g-shift, then no shift is active.
If you do this, you toggle USER mode. You can verify this on the simulator. 8-)

Re: 43S News

There will be two optimations on the keyboard regarding alpha functionality: The menu αINTL contains all Latin letters for a while now, so there's no reason for attaching it to [+] anymore. It moves to f-shifted A. Hence, the printer character ⎙ can move to g-shifted [+] where also ⎙x is located. I ...

Re: Allschwil Meeting 2020

I'll try being there again, but there's a 95th birthday in my wife's family on the very same day. Luckily, it's in Switzerland not too far away.
