Re: Printed manual for the 43S ?

Weirdos like me would prefer it included, even if just as an add-on at device ordering time, and then would pay to get the updated versions as they became available.

Re: Are dot files write protected in FAT FS?

I should have asked, because properly unmounting the DM’s storage is so important. I assumed the user was already doing that ;) You might be able to add a Git hook to the various operations you’re using to force a sync every time. You’re back into floppy performance territory, but at least things sh...

Re: Are dot files write protected in FAT FS?

Git doesn’t typically meddle with or care about any permissions flags on files. However, Git can be very sensitive to file system sync times, caching, and consistency.

I had some success with a new face sticker from SM, but I have mostly learned to ignore the issue, and I use the large size units and the DM42 and 41 almost exclusively now anyway. Cleaning the contact areas with rubbing alcohol helped to get good adhesion if anyone is still trying to improve this o...
