Re: Inspiring the next generation of RPN users

I don't think the wheel number is a fitting paradigm here. A fuel tank may be better: with our calculators, you have a choice of 40 or 80 liters. :D And you're not forced to choose the large one, but you will learn about its advantages. You can feed any (!) real-world formula to an 8-level stack and...

In my opinion the main problem with a stack of more than 4 levels is, that it would not be compatible with either RPN (because of the T register) or RPL.

Re: Inspiring the next generation of RPN users

Well, YOU may get it if you really like that, of course -- but for kids? KISS: 8 levels cover everything which will ever happen to an intelligent person. Is there any example in regular math (college or Abitur) where four stack levels are not enough? ... Equations of this kind need >4 stack levels ...

Re: Inspiring the next generation of RPN users

Why do you want to see 8 stack levels on the screen? Just confusing. Even displaying 4 stack levels is annoying and overkill IMO. Two shall suffice - compare the HP-42S - so you know the next operands.

Re: Credit card sized models

AFAIK, SwissMicros is a very small company. So you will hardly hear anything as long as Michael is busy elsewhere.

Re: We need you for the 43S. Yes, you!

We've got 1717 members on this forum. Guess there are some programmers among them at least, even some C programmers, I presume. Are you one of them? Are you willing to contribute actively to the final 10% of the 43S, the ultimate RPN pocket calculator? Then please apply. You will be welcome...
