Re: Converting to 1-bit

With XnView, it works for me if I export the picture (instead of saving, which forces 24-bit conversion). File - Export - Tab BMP (all options unchecked) - Save - Record... That worked. Thanks! I never did like the way GIMP took so long to start. I put up with it because that was the only way I was...

Re: Converting to 1-bit

I use Pierre-Emmanuel Gougelet's XnView (Ver. 2.49.4) software for this, which is available as freeware for several operating systems. It's easy to use and has been translated into 46 languages. The program is also freely available in a portable version . 8-) I wish GIMP still worked the way it use...

Re: third root of -8...

Re: DM42 Fasteners

Maybe once you get them, you could tell us what size they are just in case we lose one! I suspect they're not very much different from the ones you have not lost yet ;) If I take one out to measure it, it will drop from my hand and go straight down a heating grate! :lol: Besides, my measurement ski...

Re: DM42 Fasteners

I sent an email and SM is sending replacement screws. It would be easier if I was simply provided the screw size as requested and I could get the screws at a local hardware store. However, I appreciate the customer service and look forward to using my DM42 without being extra careful. :) Maybe once...

My DM42 shipped without fasteners to secure the backplate. Can someone tell me the faster type and size?
You mean the two screws? That's odd! Contact SwissMicros. I'm sure they would make it right.

And we need an obelus here... ;)
Pero professore, please allow me quoting ISO 80000-2:
The symbol ÷ should not be used.
:P 8-)
Then how about a different obelus like † or ⁒ (not to be confused with %) ?
