Re: Amazon DM42?

Amazon is good for promotion, but I wont be selling DM42's there as long as I don't have huge piles lying around not being able to sell them via my own shop. And I don't expect that to happen too soon ... Great news! I prefer SM make more profit per sale. This is more likely to lead to new and bett...

Request for Links to Open in New Windows

I'd like to request the SM Forum configuration be changed such that clicking on links in a Forum post will open that link in a new Browser Window (or preferably, simply open in a new tab if such granularity is available - it seems it is as MoHPC Forums does this, and I believe that is an older versi...

Re: Do use the same USB DRiver for a replacement calc?

I can't use the same driver for my beta unit as my production unit. When I want to update the firmware of the beta machine, I run inf-wizard then if I want to update the production machine, I have to run inf-wizard again or else DM Tool won't see the new calculator. This is NOT a general issue on W...

Re: Append to CATALOG

...sorry for that suggestion. I am sorry... Walter is right, there is no reason to be sorry, making suggestions is always welcome by the community. It only becomes an issue when suggestions are unreasonably repeated, pedantic or insisted upon, which is NOT the case here. In this case, I do agree wi...

Re: [DM15L] Got mine

Annunciators: I did as rprosperi recommended but it's still a pain in the ass. Pressing the f or g key succesively should disable the annunciator. I also would like to have that 'nulling' of a keypress like at the HP41, when a key is held down for a second. These are both cases where the DM15L beha...

Re: Updating DM-42 on a mac

For the record, the instructions worked fine for me (after installing dfu-util with homebrew (http://brew.sh)) for updating to both 3.1 and 3.2. The actual command I ended up using (but this may depend on USB port and so on, so do not blindly copy this!) was dfu-util -d 0483:df11 -D DM42_flash_3.2....

Re: Bug Report - Hang Detection

@gene There was a change in the v3.2 firmware which SM believes has corrected this problem. The cause was some undocumented changes to the image by the compiler when set to optimize the pkg. They've backed off the optimize aggressiveness and some testing with some (perhaps not all) of the programs y...

Re: [DM15L] Got mine

You can use [f] [CLEAR PREFIX] to 'cancel' either [f] or [g] prefix keys. If you've pressed [f], just continue with [CLEAR PREFIX]. If you've pressed [g], you must press [f] [CLEAR PREFIX]. This is the same key sequence to display the full mantissa, but it also serves to cancel the shift since it do...

Re: Calculator locks up with this program

I wrote a program to test the calculator speed, and it locks up needing a RESET to recover. The error message is Reg Id d3770103, fw 3.0. The number of loops is placed in the X register before execution, and the program locks up with loops exceeding 100. Firmware update v3.2 added some changes to f...

Re: T+X, CLK24/CLK12, MDY/DMY and settings menu.

Deciding to not add to FREE42's vocabulary as a guiding principle, but suggesting Thomas do just that, seems odd, but I am not programming either one so I can't say for sure if there are good reasons that are obvious (to other people). @Thomas - Having said that, is it feasible to build FREE42 with ...
