Re: What would be the ultimate calculator in 2017?

*PS I assume that people believe the HP42s to have been the greatest calculator of all time - but maybe I'm wrong? When asked what their favorite calculator is, a lot of people on the HP Museum Forum mention the HP-42S. "Greatest calculator of all time" is rather more grandiose, and makes a claim t...

Re: What would be the ultimate calculator in 2017?

Project Euler is a website with some easier and some fiendishly tricky puzzles. They all require at least an element of maths and programming to solve. I'll be impressed if anyone can use their HP calculator to solve any! I took a trivial problem from the list: what is the sum of the natural number...

Re: Inspiring the next generation of RPN users

Even the DM10 is overkill with its L.R. and PRGM for school kids. But if you think of RPN for the next generation, give them an eight-level stack! Give them a machine with a stack limited only by available memory (RPL) :) No no! Anything but RPL! When I type something on the keyboard, I want it in ...

Re: Flashing firmware v23

The links should be OK on the /firmware.php page now. There were a few changes made but the links didn't follow :) Try again now using the links on that page. Maybe clear your browser cache just to be on the safe side. FYI - As of 14:25 (UTC-4:00) today, the links do work and the file "swissmicros_...

[DM41] Firmware Update Instructions Out of Order

I just updated my DM41 to V23. I found that following the update instructions in order didn't work. If I start the update tool before connecting the calculator to a USB port (as the instructions say to do), the COM port doesn't show up in the firmware update tool. If I connect the calculator then ru...

Factually, the DM11L is a better alternative to work with. But that's no reason for a collector, is it?
Of course not! A true collector might not use or even turn on any of the machines (s)he owns. Just having each model is enough.
