Re: Empty CUSTOM menu

I was speaking tongue-in-cheek, but yes, I think the HP-42S is amazingly well-designed, and in my effort to replicate it, I try to stay as close to that design as I can. I've made exceptions for bugs — don't want to replicate those — and one or two other things, like turning on the up/down annunciat...

Re: Free42 has a new version, 2.022, time for a DM42 ROM update...

I think everybody here knows by now how a DM42 firmware update works. No need to split hairs over the terminology. On the subject of functionality, these are the four items in Free42 2.0.22 that are relevant to the DM42: INPUT should clear any message from the display before showing the prompt, but ...

Four of the six changes in 2.0.22 affect *all* platforms. They're all pretty minor, but still...

Re: Dave Jones (EEVBLOG) tries the DM42

And it is said, that this sum tends to the reciprocal of the golden ratio That's a great example of how you can completely destroy the meaning of a phrase by taking it out of context.

What value did you had in the X-register when you launched RFC?
I'm guessing 26 or more, which results in NOT being performed with a value it can't handle, outside of its domain of -(2^35) to (2^35)-1.

Re: DMCP_SDK API

Unfortunately, we were forced (by external forces we weren't able to influence) to massively speed up the release of DMCP system interface The choice to release the DM42 in a non-GPL-compliant state was entirely yours. The DMCP interface should have been available the moment you started selling bet...
