Re: Faceplate peeling.

Oh, It’s called reading the post (oops). The silk screen is peeling off would require a new face plate which can then be glued into place. That is something new to me, as both my 42S (beta and production) have not suffered that! Could it be a lab environment (outgassing chemicals?) or it could be so...

Re: DM42 works with USB but not battery

Look at it the positive way. With those batteries, you do not need a current limiting resistor on the LEDs :lol: Sometimes I look at the Chinese batteries the negative way and sometimes the positive way. All depends how I pick them up. :shock: Also, I NEVER use Duraleak (Duracell) batteries! Two ma...

Re: DM-42 in HP-41 font

The goose! Flying into Toronto and I had an HP moment: The ATIS (automatic terminal information service aka the actual weather) stated that a “goose” was affecting all runways. It was 05:30 so I asked: how big was the goose or conversely how fast was it to be able to affect all 4 runways simultaneou...

Re: HP-41X Alpha Legend Style

I think I better edit my post! :shock: My eyes are 40 years older now then they were when I bought my first HP 41c with extended memory and functions. :o If I do the math, in 1980 I was 23. I am now almost 63. About the +5.00 helpers, I use those for extremely close up work like watch servicing. :ug...

I use it for data base modification, but not enough to memorize the layout and commands as I have on the keyboard after 40 years!

Re: FAST/SLOW status

A nice feature which I've not found documented in the manual unless I missed it. That reminds me of a standard reply from management in the training/testing department: Me: “Did I miss that or was it not documented?” Management: “Yes, you missed it and it was not documented.“ Me: :roll:
