Re: Useful Content for the "Ultimative OFFIMG"

That's kind of you deetee, but I'm not a guru of any kind, I simply have loved HP machines since the 70's, still collect and use them, and am louder than most folks. No, it is not worth it to create the full view, your sample image above shows that it is more technically possible than it would be us...

Re: Original fonts

good point Walter; I assumed the OP was talking about the Voyagers, not sure why. Apols if I've gone off-topic :) It probably is the Voyagers, as the DM42 has a font that is very similar to the original HP-42S, although it also has a different font, which possibly is selected leading to the questio...

Re: Useful Content for the "Ultimative OFFIMG"

Any further suggestions (beside a periodic table for what I have no place left)? First, thanks for this update! I use this Off-Screen image on all my DM42 machines, and will update them this weekend. Regarding the periodic table, if that really was feasible (not sure there is enough resolution) kee...

Re: User Flag Catalog

Here's a program I whipped up to help me keep notes on what some of the user flags mean to the programs I have in the current state. [snip] Here's the program using LSTO command that the current version of Free42 has and hopefully the DM42 will have soon. A version compatible with the current DM42 ...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

I agree the RadioButton and CheckBoxes are very useful enhancements of the UI and the 43S team should consider adopting them. Their use and behavior are universally understood and they add can add clarity when selecting among the many, many sets of 43S option settings, as is well-illustrated in the ...

Re: Test message

Actually, it was an American solution to the reported 'problem' of silence here on the SM Forum, posted at MoHPC. I am not sure, but I believe the OP was not American. Be careful how you aim such observations, else it could be seen as what my elementary school teacher called a 'hasty generalization'...

Re: ? DM42 as Alarm Clock ?

The alarm function not the HP41 was really for HPIL control. Set flag 11, turn off calc and when alarm wakes calc up, execute resident program. Mine woke up, turned off some lab equipment and turned some on back in the early 80s via HPIL. 42s was not a controller; no HPIL, so no need to implement t...
