Re: ? DM42 as Alarm Clock ?

But they were present in 27S and 17B, I think. Yep, and also the 18C/19B/19BII, but that could be what Geoff called the stretch (not sure if he meant the Charlemagne or Champion series, they both sorta stretch in different ways). But NOT in the 28C and 28S, somewhat oddly... Stretched Pioneers are ...

Re: ? DM42 as Alarm Clock ?

The alarm function not the HP41 was really for HPIL control. Set flag 11, turn off calc and when alarm wakes calc up, execute resident program. Mine woke up, turned off some lab equipment and turned some on back in the early 80s via HPIL. 42s was not a controller; no HPIL, so no need to implement t...

But TI-30 .... I don't even know about it
It was just an example of a model name abused a gazillion times.

Yes, with 90 different two-digit numbers to choose from, HP have re-used some of them several times over, confusing collectors forevermore. :D
TI-30, anyone? :lol:

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...
