Hem, nothing special ! All went right and I can now display the date as DMY ;)
You could do before but it wasn't immediately obvious without reading the release notes. Pressing [∑+] would have done it :)

Nice to ear from you...

In fact I live in Tours but I hope to go back soon in Brittany where I was born (even if Tours and Tourraine are nice places) and play as a retired guy with my DM42 fantastic toy !

The copyright message still says 2018...

The same thing happened to me in the Windows build. Apparently I missed free42/windows/Free42.rc during my annual copyright year update ritual. Anyone have a clue why the MacOS grep would not find 2018 in that file, despite the fact that the MacOS file says it's plain text?

Good point. I think the annual copyright update ritual might have been skipped in this case because it was neither applied to Free42 nor DMCP. I'll get that changed for the next release.

I am currently set @ PowerOFF mode = 1, showing the least current drain from the battery.
Thanks for the info. I'm getting old because I looked all through the setup menus several times and missed the power off mode setting. I was at mode 1, but I'm trying out mode 3.

I stopped hard fault resets by installing a fresh battery, but it does seem to be draining more quickly than I remember in the past. I'll fiddle with power modes for a couple of weeks and maybe finally solder the bridge connection I said I would many months ago... :lol:

The DM42 is the best Scientific Calculator ever made...The original HP 42S is the 2nd best...

Power-off mode

Offers several levels of power off with different components switched on/off. Useful for diagnosing excessive power consumption.
Which components need to be switched on when the calculator is switched off?

I am actually having a bit of bother which seems related to power. Several months ago I updated my (beta) DM42, and it died after a few days. Replacing the battery helped for another few days, then it died again.

I then put the calculator away, forgot about it for a while, and then updated it a couple of weeks ago (to 3.11), but it still has the same problem. I suspected the batch of batteries I was using and bought a new one from a different brand. I installed it a couple of days ago, and guess what - today my calculator is dead.

Does this sound familiar to anyone?

@H2X: Michael suggested to email him in those cases.

Yep, same here.

As already suggested, please contact David for this kind of problems.
From what I now know I'd suggest to upgrade to 3.12 since now it should recognise the hardware it runs on and adapt to the correct setting.

But, again, contact David, please.
