Re: Attention collectors!

Yes, with 90 different two-digit numbers to choose from, HP have re-used some of them several times over, confusing collectors forevermore. :D And 10 is especially overused. In order of introduction, there are: HP-10 (sometimes called the 10A) HP-10C HP-10B (yellow labels) HP-10B (green labels) HP-...

Re: RTC Calibration program

So, I just ran this program, but when I view the FAT drive in my PC file manager, I don't see any rtccalib.cfg file in the root directory. Am I expected to create this file, or am I missing something ? The Release notes found here: https://forum.swissmicros.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=2211 imply that ...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

Status report and photo updates, document update. Really useful and helpful post Jayco, to capture a project snapshot, and help folks catch-up. I'd suggest it would be about perfect if it also included a file (text, .doc, .pdf, whatever) that contained the contents of the post itself too, as that c...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

The last few (w/lighter bezel) look quite nice. I've been following this discussion initially more interested in the process than the product, but I've become interested in the product. ;) I don't feel that this is 'better than' the 43S baseline per se, I've liked and always felt comfortable with Wa...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

Well Bob, your 'aging eyes' may actually be an asset. The fact is ... that the intended users of this scientific professional tool (the ones that this device has been designed for ...) do not always perform their work in ideal environments or situations. There are often challenges ... not ideal lig...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

For 'Bob without Borders.' :D EDIT addition: Rendering 4. Menu keys with labels without any border around the black shading. And light grey ALPHA lettering. It's hard to compare them exactly as this last one is larger, but for my (aging) eyes, I can see the versions with borders much more clearly t...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

I tried to make a proper emulator layout without the confusing colours: See http://cocoon-creations.com/download/IMG_0392.JPG As the old adage says, a picture really is worth a thousand words. Thanks for sharing. This image is nice and should clear up much confusion for the TL;DR folks, myself amon...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

You have functions which are blue on the keyboard listed in a line with a yellow marker (abs, delta%, etc.) Those are blue functions and should never be on the menu line marked as yellow (the middle line) Why have colors at all if you're not going to use them? The screen shot used to explain this L...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

I would really like input from everyone as to the idea of shaded menu items as opposed to underlined. I prefer the shaded menu choices as compared to underlined. The overall appearance, for me, is much less cluttered and therefor more clear. It's possible I've been influenced by years of using a 42...
