Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.11 / DM42-3.11

I just installed DM42 V3.11 on DMCP v3.10 via load-program-from-flash, on production unit 00282. No hiccups or problems to report. I usually leave the Voltage display set to OFF, but I enabled it due to the bug that seems to affect some units using DMCP 3.10. My voltage was initially at 2.97V, and t...

Re: Battery life

Can not even switch on the check the FW now... So need 1. a new battery, 2. connect it to USB, 3. check FW and then the upgrade process. Something is strange since I did not have this for months and now "suddenly" it eats CR2032 as if it is nothing. It should run off USB power, even with dead batte...

Re: 43S News

Looking damn good, I wish I were able to attend the Allschwil meeting.

Thanks to Walter, Pauli and whoever else is contributing! (Marcus too? - simply don't know whom I should be thanking).

Re: 43S Poll (yes, here is one!)

So, AFAICS this is what you want, what you reallly really want: ... Don't you? For the upper portion, yes, exactly what I want. But, if feasible, I do like your suggestion of having the numeric keys a different color than the other keys, just as was used for Classics, Woodstocks, Spice, etc., thoug...

Re: 43S Poll (yes, here is one!)

The DM42 features brown and yellow keys; I don't see why the 43S can't feature brown, yellow, blue, and white keys. Just food for thought - not pictured yet. If the numeral keys indeed can be a separate color than the other keys, I would probably support that, though white is ugly and too high-cont...

Re: 43S Poll (yes, here is one!)

I was lazy and simply voted for the far left candidate, but I do agree with all of Didier's comments. I don't think previous (recent) versions of the keyboard had the white background on number keys, did they? If these keys were double-shot, then something like that may work, but the large painted w...

Re: Battery life

Hi, not sure if still relevant, but I have the same issue. Put in a fresh battery (tried Panasonic and Varta) and it drains in about 3 to 4 weeks. Is this the expected lifetime of a battery, or is something wrong? Calculator usage is also limited to a few minutes per day max. A few is... how many? ...

Re: New File Updates (Late August '18)

And...after a new file of the same name is copied to replace the old one, a dangling handle is still memorized by the OS, which finally crashes the DM42? In my case, I connected to the USB drive (I'm using windows, but don't think that matters), deleted the old index.htm file, copied the new one to...
