Re: Crazy 41 ebay of the day

Normal overprice items from our "friend" kobel-co (pka Coburlins) We have a guy of the same gang here: https://www.ebay.de/itm/Originalkarton-fur-Batterien-fur-HP-41-MN9100-Duracell/233577599275?hash=item36624f512b%3Ag%3A3BoAAOSwbERenKaf&LH_Auction=1 - this is for an empty battery box...

An updated version of the .zip file with Angels modules has been posted on the support site.

This includes the recently updated Warp_core, LIB4 plus 2 new modules described in other recent posts.

Re: Make XEQ+ functionality native to the 41x

I agree that although the DM41X keyboard is excellent and better than any other contemporary calculator (possibly excluding the Prime) it is still well behind a genuine 41CX keyboard, but its hard to compete with 40+ years of familiarity. These posts all relate to easing/speeding the process of ente...

Re: Make XEQ+ functionality native to the 41x

While tempted to quote Bill Wickes' "Well, life is short and ROM is full", as this is the actual case with the 41X, it really is more of a matter of how large XEQ+ is; I'd guess it's not tiny. Perhaps it could find a home in other oft-used modules that may have space? For example, maybe it...

Re: Display update difference between DM41X and HP41

Never understood why the 42s had no clock but the business calcs did. Cheers again! I never understood this decision either. It was available for Saturn (Lewis) in all the business Pioneers, the 41CX had it, and it's hard to imagine there is any added cost, so why decide to not include it? This was...

Re: Display update difference between DM41X and HP41

Regarding use of the 82143A features vs. the 82242A IR Module... The 82143A is well documented due to the huge but still growing base of 41 users at the time (e.g. VASM listings were released NOMAS to the PPC community), while Blinky came near the end of 41 market life, at which point HP was no long...

Re: Display update difference between DM41X and HP41

[snip] On a related issue. A few weeks back @Meindert posted an Arduino solution for a 'roll your own' IR receiver. And in your response Bob, you mentioned: It is actually likely we can add an option that will remove the throttling of the IR output, but some details need to be confirmed first. Anyt...

Re: Display update difference between DM41X and HP41

This issue is related to VIEW, which defaults to printing (in all print modes) if the module is installed. So, even though there is no printer attached, when the module is installed, it will still pause to print upon each VIEW statement. If you CF 21, this tells the 41 to ignore the printer, which i...

Re: Display update difference between DM41X and HP41

We have a winner!!! Well, an answer.... The really (REALLY) frustrating thing is I have kept the Printer module installed virtually all the time since before release. On Friday, I removed it as I'm testing some module stuff, and so I couldn't see the problem. Thanks to everyone for the extra reports...

Re: Display update difference between DM41X and HP41

Differing results are always interesting... Can folks please report a few additional details about their configuration when they do/don't see the delay, such as: a. Display mode (SI vs. Stack) b. Modules loaded (initially just yes or no) c. Digit display setting (e.g. Fix-9, Sci-2, etc.) d. Other no...
