Re: Converting to 1-bit

Photoshop for initial cropping and then a python script I wrote for the mono conversion and final dithering. I always loved the way Atkinson dithering looked. It reminds me of being a kid and playing on the classic Macs at my dad’s work. So I implemented it for myself when I got a DM42. Fun learnin...

Re: Is purchasing DM16L as well as DM42 redundant?

DM42 now let’s you change word size for base calculations. It lets me do everything I need to do, but I’m not a real coder and don’t work with digital hardware.

However I did notice the new DM41x has an upgraded and improved keypad. Will a retrofit be available for fi...

Re: 43S News

Bob, I think your suggestions are worthy of further discussion. Walter can be convinced: it needs evidence and justification.

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.14 / DM42-3.14

I definitely missed some 0’s after the update. Nothing hugely problematic but it happened a few times.

Re: Standalone DM42 decoder/encoder

I wrote an encoder in python. Haven’t done the decoder yet.
