Re: WP 43S Pilot Run (Poll!)

Could someone explain to me the difference between spewing generalities and overt bigotry?

Re: Prime number needs

From the Wikipedia article on the Mersenne Twister pseudo-random number generator: The most commonly used version of the Mersenne Twister algorithm is based on the Mersenne prime 2^(19937)−1. It also appears that large primes are used for the Lehmer random number generator : Mersenne primes 2^31−1 a...

I renew my plea to adjust the Alpha characters on the 5th line to the order NOPQ:.

If any readers agree, PLEASE post a comment of support.
I agree 100% with Bob. I would like to go one step further and ask that the 8th line be changed to Z, ?, comma, space.

I'm in for one alpha WP 43S in hopes that it will stop that high-pitched whining I keep hearing. I'm almost certain it isn't tinnitus. :P

Re: [DM10L] The wait is over!

My frighteningly angry postal carrier delivered my long delayed DM10L and DM12L today. The S/N of the DM10L is a very prime 017/100!

Thanks SM for allowing me to complete the set of both CC and L format Voyagers. I'll post a photo of the entire family someday soon.

Thanks, Mark. Although, ...
1. Can't find your both dart arrows. Unicode? Font?
2. How do you apply kerning?
Unicode: U+2B9C and U+2B9E
MS Wingdings 3: 0x85 and 0x86
Kerning needs to be supported by your application. In MS Turd it is on the advanced tab of the font properties dialog.

Re: Who knows HP's keyboard fonts?

Found very close fonts for almost every letter but the exchange character: 34C_xy.png Any ideas where to find this? Another solution is to use two characters and apply kerning. Below, I used a Unicode right dart arrow and left dart arrow. I set the right arrow as superscript and the left arrow as s...
