Re: DM 48 .... WHY NOT ?!!!

I guess your interpretation of my opinion is slightly off as well. Regardless of the actual cost, I think a DM48 isn't worth the effort... Have no fear, Walter, your opinions about larger-than-Pioneer calculators and RPL have been clearly visible to me (and probably most others) for quite some time...

Re: DM 48 .... WHY NOT ?!!!

You didn't read the emoticon, did you? :? I share your opinion that a DM48 isn't worth the cost. I saw it, hence my also including one further down in my response. I view this particular topic as having as much connection with reality as the "what would you do if you won the lottery?" question that...

Re: DM 48 .... WHY NOT ?!!!

Sounds like progress ... ;) Well, not so much to me. The soft-keys in the top row really need to always be nothing more than soft-keys on a 48/50-like system -- having to activate that as a mode would be problematic, since they also need to be shiftable on numerous planes (including shift-hold). So...

Re: DM 48 .... WHY NOT ?!!!

+1 I'll add to the votes calling for a DM 48 - or a DM 48/50 - BUT only with a 48G keyboard layout - the keyboard layout of the 50g is one of the few things I really dislike about that calculator. A "DM 51" with the following features would be very enticing: - 48g keyboard layout - 50g firmware ima...

Re: Programming a Lookup Table for Inflation Calendar on DM42

Actually, you only need a single column. The offset into the matrix infers which time period is applicable (either annual or monthly, depending on which data you want to use). I've got a custom-built app for, uhm, "another calculator" that uses the same data from the same source (I use the annual av...

Re: [DM15 M1B V25] % produces incorrect results

100 ENTER 10 % produces 1.0000 45 ENTER 10 % also produces 1.0000 10 ENTER 3 % produces 0.4771 50 ENTER 100 % produces 2.0000 Just an observation: it appears that your results are actually the LOG of the second argument (the value in X). Do you also have problems with y^x? Perhaps your keys aren't ...

Re: Iconic Space History Photos

Sorry for the firewall issues, Didier, I was afraid that might happen. Here's a downloadable zip file with the two images from above: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1yiCdYe_SDIUDMjwOf-e-eFh9vnJ0zKej/view?usp=sharing If anyone knows of a free option for hosting images that still allows hot-linking, ...

Re: Iconic Space History Photos

The loss of color does indeed remove a component of drama from this photo, but I believe for most of us the image is still iconic enough to tell its story. I attempted some selective contrast adjustments before dithering in an attempt to retain some of the detail. - David Note: as requested, I've ho...

Re: Creating offimage

Geoff - If you'd prefer to stick with PhotoShop for your offimages, here's some similar steps to convert your original 800x480 image: 1) Image>Image Size - Change dimensions to 400x240 (resample image will have to be selected) - Select "Bicubic Sharper" as the resample method (optional, but better f...
