Re: DM42 Firmware V3.5 available

I always get into arguments over this with my family and friends because people use the terms loosely. I do not work in the aviation industry, but my understanding is that a direct flight is one on which the passenger travels on the same equipment from start to finish of their route. A non-stop fli...

Re: Free42 web site has moved

I moved the web site back to thomasokken.com. I decided I liked my old hosting provider better, and that the change to .nl was causing too much confusion. My apologies for the inconvenience!

Re: Is there any polling station here?

The "Cowboy Neal" is part of a lyric for "That's it for the Other One" - "...there was Cowboy Neal at the wheel of a bus to never ever land" which seems sorta lame written like that. Like much of the Dead's culture, it's all in the song... Read about Cowboy Neal (the original one) here: https://en....

Re: Is there any polling station here?

It all depends on whether there is a Cowboy Neal option or not. :lol: "Cowboy Neal" - is that a Grateful Dead reference? It is a Slashdot reference. Slashdot is a user-moderated news and discussion site, and since early on they have weekly-or-so polls, on whichever topic the site administrators com...

I've heard that 82% of the people polled disagree. :shock:

Re: buttons that don't register well

I tried this on my "beta unit" DM42 (serial number 62), and it worked quite well. It looks like I'll have to repeat the procedure on a few keys that are still a bit stiff, but most of them are fine now, even the ENTER key, and regardless of whether you press it on the left, right, or in the middle.

So there's no remaining acrimony between you and D & M?

Re: DM42 License Statement

Thomas, I think the key question for me is: Are you satisfied with the final result? Or do you feel that there are still outstanding issues? It took me a while to take a look at it, my apologies for that -- I was on vacation when the release was made, and while on vacation, I caught a nasty cold th...

I have no use for the source code (nor all this fuss about it)
If the DM42 had been GPL-compliant from the beginning, there would never have been any fuss. And you could have simply ignored the fuss that did occur, since you don't care about the issue anyway.
