It all depends on whether there is a Cowboy Neal option or not. :lol:
"Cowboy Neal" - is that a Grateful Dead reference?
It's a Slashdot reference. :-)
The Slashdot reference IS a Grateful Dead reference. Read the above posts.

Re: Is there any polling station here?

Hmm, I may actually have heard that song once. In 1981, there was a Rockpalastnacht concert featuring a double bill of The Who and The Grateful Dead. Me and a couple of friends got together to watch it on German TV (it was broadcast live, from Berlin); we set up a few amplifiers and had high-qualit...

Re: Is there any polling station here?

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 come up with. It became a running joke to always have a Cowboy Neal option; as a (made up) example: Favorite Calculator Bran...

Re: DMCP_SDK Hello World

Hello Vitasam, many thanks for checking this! It is reassuring that both files are executable. Also interesting, that the sizes reported by the DM42 also differ from the sizes within Linux (ls). Thomas Building images from the same sources using gcc running on Linux and Windows producing different ...

Re: Bug when connecting the USB cable

I just connected my DM42 running f/w Ver 3.71 to my PC via USB cable with no trouble; it worked as expected, files on Flash were visisble to the PC, etc. so the issue reported above is not present in all 3.7 f/w DM42 machines. I don't doubt that the 2 reports are real problems, I just wanted to veri...

Re: DM42 License Statement

I have no use for the source code (nor all this fuss about it), so I'll just wait for the next normal firmware update and update as normal. I don't see the point of updating the firmware when there is no functional difference between the last firmware version and this new open source one. One reaso...

Re: DM42 License Statement

Thanks for this update Michael, good news that the refactoring/redesign is completed! I suspect the instructions you posted will work as stated once the DMCP layer has been installed, but with the prior style f/w, nothing is automatically detected, at least on my machine (production unit with v3.5 i...

Re: saving variables anytime?

i'd like to save and load variables like with programs like now: setup -> file -> save variable in csv or ods/xls (open document/excel) format. how do others see this? Is this for 1 variable, or all variables at once? For 1, this seems a lot of s/w work, rather than just writing it down. For all va...
