Re: C43 Bug Reports

Thinking further J->D could accept a real and return the time of day too.

Re: C43 Bug Reports

J->D should accept either a long integer or a real (truncating any fractional part).
It probably should also accept a short integer.
Doing anything else is crazy IMO.

This should generalise to all functions. If a scalar number in one format is supported, they all should be.

Re: Joint statement from the WP43 developers and the C43 team

It isn't just the newer developers who are onboard with the change. All of the core developers are. In particular both Martin and myself, who've been part of the project from the beginning, are onboard. It became apparent that WP 43S will not be produced by Swiss Micro. There are irreconcilable diff...

It's easy to calculate the number of functions you can feature if you don't allow for menus.
It's maximised when half the keys are prefix keys....

Re: Fancy Leather Cases

I did at one point and had some nice cases made both for printers and calculators.

The guy who made them was later convicted for child molestation and is spending a long time in gaol. A good thing IMO.

Re: 43S News

There are spaces in both the EXP and TRI menus, so we're not losing anything. Unless we start adding sec, cosec, cot and their hyperbolic equivalents :twisted: Jacobi's sn an cn are related to sin/sinh and cos/cosh respectively, so they might be a problem adding to the TRI menu (like sinh/cosh). The...

Since e^x, LN, and x^2 don't count, of course...
I don't really count x^2, I use square root far more often. To my mind x^2 is for programs, ENTER * is a nice and quick sequence and I rarely need to maintain the top of stack when I'm computing by hand.

Re: 43S News

I came up with a third possibility overnight. Instead of y^x in the blue shifted location, we could add a new menu for elliptic functions. These functions bridge the gap between hyperbolic (in EXP) and trigonometric (in TRI) so would be a natural fit there. What would be in such a menu: The differen...

A second cooking in the range 80℃ to 90℃ an the last dot has come good. My DM 16C is happy again.

Re: Spots on display, not pixels

I spoke too soon, the device came out of the oven about seven hours ago and one black pixel has returned. I'll give it another heating cycle and see.
