Re: Question about updating the firmware on the DM42 calc.

The state file contains ALL programs, variables, settings, stack, registers, etc.. in fact everything that is in the 'state' of the device, hence the name. Yes, save a state file immediately prior to a f/w update, then restore that state file immediately after the update. Doing so adds less than 30...

DMCP 3.19

Is it recommended to update to DMCP 3.19 and load the DM42 prg file separately or is there going to be a combined bin file?

Re: Faceplate peeling.

Yeah but the OP's faceplate seems to be crumbling or dissolving. It doesn't need gluing down, it needs replacing.

Re: Announcment regarding shift-Key Color Wear

I like the clickier feel of the older keyboard and after flexing the keys, have no trouble with them registering at all. Plus I like the yellow key being molded in color. I'll never wear off the color. My DM41x, OTOH, feels like mush and the yellow paint disappeared quite a while ago. Interestingly...

Re: Announcment regarding shift-Key Color Wear

Re: DM42 Shift-key wear: Very recent DM42s had the improved DM41X-style keyboard with the softer and generally more consistent key-click, I guess the word "improved" is relative.

This forum still shows 3.15RC1 though, nothing later.
Right. You can't rely on the forum to list all updates. Monitor the download site.

Re: DM42- clock losing time

Regarding the RTC correction: if your DM42 clock is fast (i.e. it shows a later time), should the factor C be positive or negative? It's not clear from the description, so I have a 50/50 chance of being right, meaning I'll be wrong ;-) Werner LOL! Even with only two choices, it takes me three tries...

And don't touch the first line if there is no menu.
Thats all :)
I agree with the OP. Those functions shouldn't be there at all.
