Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

And since those archaic letters are not used for more than 1000 years, I don't see a pressing need for them - we also won't include Germanic runes etc. It may be ignorance on my part, but I am not aware of archaic Germanic contributions to math and science rivalling the Greek? You are right. I shou...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

@Jaco: What for do you want the archaic Greek characters? Hi Walter, For symmetry on the keyboard, complete with Greek letters without gaps, and to complete the Milesian numeral sequence, as it was almost complete in your font except for 6, 90 and 900 which would complete the series 1-900. The thou...

Re: 43S News

1. # Base change: Currently to change base, you press [f][#][H] or [f][#][D] or [f][#][2] or the obvious for any number base in range. Why is B not defined to be a shortcut for binary? Either way, upon pressing [#], on the emulator, appears a menu with ->, VARS, ST ... and it goes into entry mode w...

Re: 43S News

Thanks, Jaco & H2X, for your ideas and bugs found. I concur with Didier thinking you are actually starting something new, deviating significantly from what our 43S was and is meant to be. Thanks for your will to keep it separate in future.

Re: 43S News

My intent is to bring to light as many potential opportunities that may not have, as of yet, been considered. They then, once exposed in the brutal light of day, might be critiqued, beaten up, even dismissed, or ... possibly ... sometimes ... improved upon. It's all good ... a 'survival of the fitt...

Re: 43S News

Would a tri-state shift button appeal to the forum? That is, press once to activate the first shifted mode (f), once more to activate the second (g), and once more again to return to unshifted. Our 43S design is pretty Parkinson-safe so far, I think. Your proposal would change that ... ;) And two s...

Re: 43S News

Ok, for more roasting I will admit I never even really understood the need for a % function on a 'scientific' calc. That’s funny, I agree; I was going to reply to your first post, asking if the justification was that it’s too easy, then why do you have % on a key already? :) You're right. Since the...
