Re: [POLL] Compiler for DM15L ?

Python makes sense. The language has a large user base and is growing in popularity. I'd want a FULL Python, though. Not one of these "MicroPython" implementations. How would a full Python with Strings and all be usable on the DM15L? I'd probably not do an exact implementation of a language anyway,...

Re: Landscape DM42?

Hp41 was the best, do not change anything. Maybe that's the answer. If someone could shove the 41 CX rom into the DM42, then we could be reassigning keys and manually typing in functions like it was 1979. Yeah but without the hardware connectivity of the 41CX, most of the functionality is gone for ...

M-W seems to call it scale armor. Calculator armour would be useful to cover your 5318008.
Without it you might find yourself 55378008...
OK, guys enough! I'm getting tired of having to turn my 24" monitor upside down so I can read these funny comments! :lol:

Re: [POLL] Compiler for DM15L ?

I'd vote for Python, Pascal or Lua. I spent 30 years as a professional COBOL programmer and 12 as a BASIC programmer (yes there are such people!) but I like the structure of Python, Pascal and Lua. They seem to work the way I think and I can usually write code that runs the first time with them.

Re: Fundamental Mathematics

Quite interesting replies so far. Claim: Pocket calculators as we know them can be seen as number crunchers calculating with whatever numbers are thrown at them. Though what is this? Rubbish? Sloppiness? Freedom?!? So what's your point? Calculators and computers have always crunched numbers this wa...

The important point we're all missing is that Brutus probably slobbered all over the remaining cracker.
It still tasted good! :o

Re: Post a high resolution photo of a DM42?

Hmmh... I'd suggest either "Ate two, Brutus?" or "TV QVOQVE, BRVTVS?" Well in the King's English (does anyone speak that any more?) the past tense of the verb "eat" is "et" instead of the American "ate". :geek: I saw it stated that "ate" is pronounced like " et " in (original) English but never hav...

Of course I had to say, "Et two, Brutus?"
