Re: DM42 Firmware V3.1 available

Also, I don't see anywhere whether or not 3.1 is safe to flash to a Beta unit. Is it? SM wrote The final beta version of the firmware was V2.11.6. New production units shipped with V3.0, so for the benefit of the beta testers who still have V2.11.6 on their calculators, we'll also go through what w...

Our English teacher came from Scotland and taught us the genitive with "'s" shall be used for animals (including mankind) only IIRC. Though more than five decades ago. Meanwhile, I learned that at least Americans are very ... mmh ... liberal (heaven beware!!! Of course only) grammar-wise....
