Re: i have a(nother) stupid question

i had to return the first hp48g because of a column of keys which would go in and out depending on if you flexed the case or not but the seller got an identical one in (updated display and 128k ram) and i've been banging on it for a couple days now inputting programs. not sure if i'm going to go to ...

Re: i have a(nother) stupid question

thank you! now you mention it i do remember using kermit, but i think i used it with the 200lx although it could have been the hp48. i used zterm on the mac for years and years and years, but i think it just got more and more abandoned. /guy

Re: i have a(nother) stupid question

i found an hp-48g on ebay with an updated display and ram. the display is gorgeous--i remember hating the blue on grey display back when i owned my first one, but this one is close to being black on very very light grey. i did discover a problem with a trace of keys (3/6/9/del/, but gently twisting ...

Re: i have a(nother) stupid question

Don't ask me such complicated stuff - I've no idea of Macs. Harald (hoverbeek) wrote the instructions for OS/X. You can try to reach him but don't hold your breath. lol! just struck me as curious. and using the terminal on osx is basically unix based on free-bsd which is why all that unix voodoo su...

Re: i have a(nother) stupid question

perhaps in future i could wish for a swissmicros hp-48x and that would provide for my algebraic wish as i don't think the rumored ?hp-43? is going to offer it. i don't think the wps-34 does either. I can confirm the WP 34S does nothing algebraic. The WP 43S will support algebraic equations in a way...

Re: i have a(nother) stupid question

well, this thread cost me money! :) i got to remembering how much i'd liked the 48g (except for the display. imo, no hp calculator in decades has had a decent display--how hp could get this so wrong over so long a period baffles me) and when i tested the 28c the other day i realized how much i liked...

Re: i have a(nother) stupid question

and one of the best compromises in providing both rpn and algebraic was the ?28s? ?29x? (the one that folded vertically and was a huge pain to use) where it was native rpn, but all you had to do was prefix an algebraic expression with a ' and then hit an 'input' key at the end i think. i believe on...

For what it's worth, I am working on a commercial version of Free42 that will include 27S-style equation support.
