Re: DM42 Firmware V3.3 available

Who will be the first to post a note saying they had an unexpected problem after the update completed, requiring a pinned reset?? anybody need a paperclip? I'm happy that I didn't have to reformat the FAT drive. Trying to find time now to try out some of the programs that were recently uploaded.

Re: Landscape DM42?

There's only ONE Dune film! The others are imposters. ;) If you are referring to the David Lynch one, you still have to decide which "cut" to watch. I only know of one non-Lynch movie which was more of a recorded theatrical production. But how about the multitude of versions of Army of Darkness / E...

Re: Minor bug in firmware 3.2: CATALOG of functions

I suppose this becomes another example of the reoccurring question: to what extent do we want the DM42 to be compatible with the HP42S and to what extent should it stand alone as its own improved calculator? At some point when the source is opened there could very well be a forking between "true42"...

I was trying to update the HELP file at the time. I should have updated right away but got pulled away for other mat...

I have trouble thinking of a real use for it apart from just another way to enjoy the amazing display.
Producing graphs, outputting them and using them in a document or a presentation?

Re: Bigger ALPHA register

Another idea would be to incorporate (or implement it back), what Thomas did with his Free42: Printing onto a grafik. In case of the DM42 it would be: Printing onto the full screen. A virtual variable could handle the switch between IR-based printing and onto-the-screen printing. What do you think?...
