Re: Battery life

Hi all I received my DM42 around two month ago and i realy like it. But the battery consumption is a nightmare. It takes two batteries within these two month but was not seriously used. To be honest, with the second battery it was only switched on to check the battery voltage and then switched off ...

Ok, for more roasting I will admit I never even really understood the need for a % function on a 'scientific' calc. If somebody wants to add 17,5% to 1234, (s)he can do easily via 1234 [ENTER] 1.175 [x]. Done.
Ditto.
The only one I find useful is %CH (Δ%).

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: My 80 colum...

Re: Encoder/decoder

That's something we Windows users aren't used to. We like choosing files from dialog boxes. Not this Windows user. 8-) Keyboard shortcuts are easier, faster and not as prone to oops. And even if you do somehow oops, Ctrl-Z fixes that too. My fingers have done this for so long, I sometimes have to l...

underneath the four-level stack-based FOCAL environment of the HP-42S, there is lurking a more powerful stack-based environment that is out of reach to the HP-42S user!

The perhaps only remaining concern might also be typographical, that these arrows don't seem to be easily represented in HTML (so that the community can contribute docs and examples), e,g, like HTML entities. The f and g do, of course. ... I just found the ↰ and ↱ HTML entities, seemingly e...

Also, I can't help but note that it's a shame that these easy-to-use Macs have such trouble. :x As a Windows user, I had trouble too; I had to click on the setup program. ;)

Re: 43S News

Huh! I was wrong... there isn't a reason. :o Other than W & P like it that way. Which to be fair, is equally valid as my own "I'd like it the way it was". After all, these are just opinions. I've no interest in waging a war over a religious topic, sadly there are too many people in the world doing ...
