Re: Landscape DM42?

Methinks the ENTER key should be shifted one row to the right, next to the numeric keys. Anybody else? I disagree. Keeping this layout--with the Enter key in its current place--would allow SW to reuse the existing Voyager case hardware. It also maintains the aesthetic of the Voyager layout to which...

For the annunciators, how about this:

Lower line: shift, degrees, rad, grad (the latter three compete for the same space).
Much better than Pi and Gamma. Since the original 42s has no degree annunciator, I think it is unnecessary.

Re: Landscape DM42?

Do you really need x: and y: displayed? What could be done with that space? Just food for thought ... ;) Up, Down, Shift and RAD indicators. The entire area can be used for the Running and Printing indicators. Grads? Maybe drop the right leg of the Greek letter Pi to make an uppercase Gamma--Gamma ...

Re: Landscape DM42?

Could not resist the opportunity to move the 42s primary operator keys to where god intended--the left. :mrgreen: I like it Mark, nice out-of-the-box thinking! Clearly this uses the same LCD as the current production 17BII+, which is great. Until the DM42, that's about the best LCD I've seen. Very ...

Re: Landscape DM42?

However, please feel free using it and make suggestions how the buttons of a DM42L could be arranged. https://bvqxoq.dm2301.livefilestore.com/y4m1579Fp9dR0JIKGyJ7P1hJo7gaCStKUCr2HqWKBfzHTKgTLomSOtygLpQd4e7jPKvKL6RT3WAWySgMoQ8Qm6bpwxurzMtTSYkX4CVyFnnECohRUgYZ0JqjPwzGBjNCKnR8p1cOUfhwnfGRUcsdwWopqpLWR...

Just a thought, what about the 41CV ROM with added timing and advantage modules? Or modules chosen by the user to flash?

Edited to add: just wondering if the 41CV or even 41C ROMs would give you more memory to play with
No
Not just "No" but "hell no"!

Re: [DM15 V24] D + ON

You've discovered a know bug in the original HP-15C ROM that allows non-normalized numbers (NNNs) to be created by pressing ON-y^x simultaneously. Here's an article with more information on Eric's site:

Re: DM42 Firmware V3.2 available

The update to 3.2 with dm_tool 2.3 was smooth but then I tried to transfer some OFFIMG files and it hung. The DM42 was unresponsive, stuck in USB disk mode, but not anymore recognized by Windows. I had to reset it with a paperclip, then everything worked fine and I was able to transfer the images. ...

Re: Sudoku Solver

tbd 3 : in fact, there is plenty o space under the grid to display the possibilities for the active cell, I think that would do the trick. I remember a version of Sudoku on PalmOS that displayed the possibilities in the open cells using a 3 x 3 grid of dots. For example, if the possible numbers wer...
