Re: How did you discover SwissMicros?

I wonder how many discovered SwissMicros by mistake on their search for an accurate timepiece, and accidentally bought a DM42 thinking it was such a timepiece, then proceeded to moan about the accuracy of their calculator in keeping time. I wonder.

Re: Thermal Paper?

I started an experiment on 13th March 2018 (I think it was; I can double check on Monday). I printed something, then fastened it to my whiteboard at work where it is exposed to daylight and artificial lights all day long. I wanted to see for how long it was readable.

Re: DM42- clock losing time

Are we talking a few seconds different per month? A few minutes? A few hours? A few days?

Most of the work will be replicating the Swiss Micro build environment.

Re: Spreadsheet App for DM42

The way I see it, we have a way to produce text strings anywhere on the screen (cannot link to the thread, cannot remember where it was mentioned). We have a way of detecting key presses. We should, therefore, be able to make a simple form. All it'd take is some grunt work to make it. A lot of grunt...
