Re: Leather Case for DM42

Or if you want to delve even deeper into nerd territory and have a 3D printer, here is a link to a hard case that I designed for the DM42: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3529736 I like the looks of the case you created. I was able to adapt the ASTECH Hard Case to the DM42. See my post in the fol...

Re: Thermal Paper?

Finally, it is "normal" for output to fade considerably, even after only a couple months, if the listings are left out and exposed to light. To preserve them, keep them in a file, or book, etc. to preserve the printout. I assume that you are preserving them so that you can look at them in the futur...

Re: 3D printed DM42 stand

The ASTECH case is fantastic. Perfect for protection in the field. Here's a closeup of the Hinge assembly. There are two pins that hold it together. Hinge.jpg The case is slightly too wide for the DM42 to fit. I was able to get a nice fit by cutting two lengths of the soft fabric side of Velcro. Put...

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.9a / DM42-3.9.1 / dm_tool-2.4

Quick question about updating. The new update procedure makes references to "since 3.7". My DM42 Firmware is currently at 3.1. Do I need to do a update to get it to 3.7 and then a second update to get to the current? Or can I update directly to 3.9. If so, what update procedure do I use. Thanks Bill...

Sorry to be dense... could you explain what [A] means in your post?
Refer to "Alpha Input Mode" in the DM42 manual:

Re: % Character ?

It's interesting. At first I couldn't enter the Percent Character, but I knew from the Character Table in the Manuel that Char Code 37 (Dec) is the percent character. The setting of Character Entry mode affects what is entered as follows: [A] pressing Shift RCL will enter H in alpha register [a] pre...

Re: Countdown

You lost me, Bill. I'm not yet conversant with matrices, but I'm willing to learn Think of the Matrix as an ARRAY. I'm not familiar with Countdown, but from what I can gather on the Web (Please correct me if I have this all wrong): There are two Stacks of Letter Tiles, one containing Vowels and one...

Re: Countdown

I would probably use two matrix variables - vowel and consonant.
Each matrix element could contain the numeric representation of the character.

Then just randomly choose an element from the particular matrix, and XTOA it to the alpha register.

Re: DM42 License Statement

If the DM42 had been GPL-compliant from the beginning, there would never have been any fuss. And you could have simply ignored the fuss that did occur, since you don't care about the issue anyway. Thomas, I think the key question for me is: Are you satisfied with the final result? Or do you feel th...
