Re: 43S News

My intent is to bring to light as many potential opportunities that may not have, as of yet, been considered. They then, once exposed in the brutal light of day, might be critiqued, beaten up, even dismissed, or ... possibly ... sometimes ... improved upon. It's all good ... a 'survival of the fitt...

Re: 43S News

Would a tri-state shift button appeal to the forum? That is, press once to activate the first shifted mode (f), once more to activate the second (g), and once more again to return to unshifted. Our 43S design is pretty Parkinson-safe so far, I think. Your proposal would change that ... ;) And two s...

Re: 43S News

Ok, for more roasting I will admit I never even really understood the need for a % function on a 'scientific' calc. That’s funny, I agree; I was going to reply to your first post, asking if the justification was that it’s too easy, then why do you have % on a key already? :) You're right. Since the...

@Walter - what about the suggestion to leave some shifted assignments open for custom use?
@Bob: I'd leave even all three open unless there are nice (and reasonable) proposals for their population. :)

BTW, an unshifted %T is in FIN for long.

Re: 43S News

%T returns - according to my information - 100 x/y. If this is true then it's a challenge for me to understand the use of this function. Why not just use x/y and do the trivial rest mentally? What do I miss? %T preserves T, Z, and Y. This is the first thing I assign on the keyboard of any (non-fina...

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...

This is as advertised. Actually, you'd have to press STO 01. STO 1 ENTER is an alternative way. Take out your HP-15C and compare.

Re: Encoder/decoder

We, old DOS users, came before any linux user. 8-) DOS? That didn't even exist when I started working with computers. Most of my work at the time was on CP/M80 systems. DEC's OS8 (on PDP-8) here. Though I have to admit there was no Cut/Copy/Paste on the Teletype terminal I used... :lol: There defin...
