A practical use for OFFIMG

Post by Dave Britten » Wed Dec 20, 2017 12:24 pm

Create a "This calculator belongs to..." owner identification and contact info image, and make sure that's the only file in OFFIMG. Since the image is stored in flash, it'll survive power loss, and will make it really obvious who to return the device to if lost/stolen.

Or, if not returned, at least "belonged to..." ;)

A potential thief might return the calculator once they try and use it and realise it's "broken" because 2+2 yields 2 and where the hell is the [=] key? :lol:

First thing I did.

Now I have to change it to the 787 from the 777!

Has my initials on the tail and my phone number. YVROPS is an intra company mail address.

"Tail" does not have the same meaning in English slang as it does in German (or French for that matter...) :)
