Re: What city or town is the DM-42 made??

Big fleas have little fleas upon their backs to bite 'em, And little fleas have lesser fleas, and so, ad infinitum. Similar considerations let Demokrit create the concept of atoms some 2600 years ago. Democritus, as recorded by Aristotle, if my memory serves me correctly, and despite the disagreeme...

Re: What city or town is the DM-42 made??

I think they are assembled there. Parts may come from anywhere. Turtles all the way down, again. Anything I've missed about turtles? Or about a recent US novel? I simply meant that I would consider the assembly of the calculator to be the 'making' of them. My interpretation of the argument I am cou...

Re: DM42 Firmware V3.1 available

I am a bit late with this one, but I've now updated my DM42, no problems at all. Still a short wish-list, which I'm afraid I'm obnoxious enough to share: 1.

Re: Interesting Synchronicities...

I was born on 26th October,
26×10=260
260÷360=72%, which is how much of my life has passed before the Apophis asteroid ends all life on Earth.

the QSPI flash refuses to load.
I've never had to update the QSPI, and I've had the device since beta testing. I'm curious; under what circumstances is its update is needed?
