Re: Is there any polling station here?

The "Cowboy Neal" is part of a lyric for "That's it for the Other One" - "...there was Cowboy Neal at the wheel of a bus to never ever land" which seems sorta lame written like that. Like much of the Dead's culture, it's all in the song... Read about Cowboy Neal (the original one) here: https://en....

Re: Is there any polling station here?

It all depends on whether there is a Cowboy Neal option or not. :lol: "Cowboy Neal" - is that a Grateful Dead reference? It is a Slashdot reference. Slashdot is a user-moderated news and discussion site, and since early on they have weekly-or-so polls, on whichever topic the site administrators com...

Nudge... polls are fun! :-)
I've heard that 82% of the people polled disagree. :shock:

Re: buttons that don't register well

I tried this on my "beta unit" DM42 (serial number 62), and it worked quite well. It looks like I'll have to repeat the procedure on a few keys that are still a bit stiff, but most of them are fine now, even the ENTER key, and regardless of whether you press it on the left, right, or in the middle.

So there's no remaining acrimony between you and D & M?
Yes, as far as I'm concerned, we're good now.

Re: DM42 License Statement

Thomas, I think the key question for me is: Are you satisfied with the final result? Or do you feel that there are still outstanding issues? It took me a while to take a look at it, my apologies for that -- I was on vacation when the release was made, and while on vacation, I caught a nasty cold th...

I have no use for the source code (nor all this fuss about it)
If the DM42 had been GPL-compliant from the beginning, there would never have been any fuss. And you could have simply ignored the fuss that did occur, since you don't care about the issue anyway.

Re: DM42 License Statement

It's been seven weeks since Michael started this thread, writing "In the next few days, we will be releasing the full source code to be able to build your own DM42 firmware." Seven weeks is quite a bit more than any reasonable interpretation of "a few days." A progress report would be nice at this p...

Re: Famous equations

If I may ask, why don't you (whoever the admin is) like these images on your server? They are not very big. When the OFFIMG forum was added after a suggestion, it was explained that there is somewhat limited server space available, however folks could upload image links hosted elsewhere, as it was ...
