Re: 43S News

You pursue your personal JM43S, we pursue a public WP43S. Different targets. Though it's perfectly legal to branch an open source project. Since you publish your mods, I just took the freedom to comment from my point of view. You don't have to follow - nor will we follow your modifications. The fol...

Re: 43S News

I accepted that key stickers will be needed. Hi Jaco, Do you really need stickers on the keys themselves ? On the DM42 (and hence the WP43S), can't the device be physically opened up and keys moved around to match I haven’t opened my DM42 yet but many on this forum confirmed it is one plastic piece...

Re: 43S News

Final. P.S. Who the hell actually uses the word "obelus" when they talk about a division symbol? No native English speakers I've ever heard! It figures as I'm no native English speaker ... I could have referred to the "division slash" or the "division sign", or as in Walter's comment, type the actua...

Re: 43S News

With reference to last week's discussions on polls, left/right and operator sequence, my comment is simply to be extremely grateful to the developers. Also that it is done in open source. I propose not to argue with the developers on their choices, but simply motivate or ask as potential user for ch...

Re: 43S News

I have to say... Your modified/unofficial layout is *exactly* what I would prefer myself: 1) Math operators on the right --- just like the 34S and other "late" RPN calcs 2) top-to-bottom order of math operators matches 34S and other late RPN. 3) XEQ / ↑ / ↓ / EXIT on left with same order as on 34S ...

Re: 43S News

I further tested the Mac version of the WP43S emulator by doing arbitrary computations, and looking at the manual for guidance: A. Issue: The angular mode example on p119 of the v0.12 manual does not work in the step when 0.01047 rad needs to be converted to degrees using >DEG. The R>D command does ...

Re: CAVEAT AVCTOR (WP34S)

... In consequence, I refuse to participate in this rip-off. ...If you don't need a printed copy, however, you can get a personalized pdf of the WP34S Manual and Calculation Guide of 2015 (version 3.3 build 3778) directly from me for a donation of 9.00 US$ to the WP34S project (renewing my offer of...

Re: 43S News

Thank you for the reminder. I do realise this.

My thoughts were that I will have to make an overlay and make stickers for the buttons, as both the shifted labels and primaries will be different due to the swap. The tail can’t wag the dog and even though not ideal, it is what it is.

Re: 43S News

Good to know that it’s possible. Since I know how now and I am concerned that having two opposing ways (op’s left in normal mode, and op’s right in USER mode) while having one set of DM42 buttons only, may lead to frustration. If this is avoidable, I will pursue the way of eliminating the confusion,...

Re: 43S News

I scratched in the WP43S emulator code and found some good reasons why some or all of the dev team won't entertain the idea of officially changing the operators to the right hand side of the calculator. I was under the impression (at least from posts from the golden age, left elsewhere) that every ...
