Re: Request for Links to Open in New Windows

For what it's worth and I'm not sure how universal this will be, but I just middle click on a post using my mouse wheel as a button and that opens posts in a new tab. This doesn't even need a second hand for CTRL...I use Firefox in Linux. :) Edit: I just tried it in Windows 10 with IE, and it works...

For anything which made us deserve to be Trumped...
I don't remember anything Norway has done in the last four decades deserving such a penalty. YMMV, of course.
What did we do 40 years ago? ;)
Found oil ;) (OK, thats 50 years ago..)

Re: Some images from (not of) Scotland

Last of the updates for this week I think. I've got rid of the two I didn't think worked well (the bubble chamber and inertial frames) and added a few more. Finally a 'Scottish' image too! https://dm42-offimg-library.s3.amazonaws.com/20180105-2%20OFFIMG.zip Ooh, the Palomino Blackwing 602. "Half th...

Re: Windows error message when Activate USB Disk

I wouldn't be concerned.
Windows works in mysterious ways, and I get the same message. Just continue without scan.

I have external drives that Windows hav wanted to scan for years. Never let it an never had problems with the disks :)

Re: DM42 Firmware V3.1 available

Hmm, only to ask, and what I vaguely remember; isn't semicolon to be used to avoid disambiguity? As in "I met with my parents; Jill and Tony" (not mine, just an example), where semicolon is used for statement that is inside one sentence. Thus no need for capital letters as if used colon? (Ok capital...

Re: Relative humidity and dew point

Here's a Youtube link (not me) of how to use a Psychrometer to get the wet and dry temperatures:

Re: Relative humiditu and dew point

Wet bulb? Dry bulb? Please explain to me, who is a dim bulb! :? As explained here: "In the Olden Dayes" one used (actually, it's occationally still used today, at sea) a " Psychrometer " , which is two bulb type (spirit loaded) thermometres where one covered one of them with a small piece of wet cl...

Re: Relative humiditu and dew point

Explanation here :) No, Eddie's program does not include wet/dry thermometer, thus "very loosely based" as mentioned. Eddie has taken the approach that you know the temperature and the RH (relative humidity), of which you can use to calculate the Dew Point. That is, how cold an object in the said en...

Relative humidity and dew point

My first post here and. Based very loosely on Eddie Shores Dew point program in his blog http://edspi31415.blogspot.no/2016/07/hp-42s-programming-part-ii-dew-point.html I made a bit more elaborate program. This one takes three arguments "Wet Bulb", "Dry Bulb" (thermometer) and the barometric pressur...
