OK, I'll try and get to the bottom of this.
There are only 10 kinds of people in the world: those who understand binary and those who do not.

So it sounds like better wait for version 3.15.

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

Or don't hold down more than one key at a time!

If I buy someone a drink to congratulate them, is it a Mazel Tov cocktail?

Or, even better, make 1 sec pause after each keystroke while checking display.

I’m not having this keyboard issue with v3.14 on my DM42. I do have “Slow Auto-repeat” selected in “Settings”, although I don’t see how this might cause the reported problem of lost entries. Perhaps this problem is in hardware ?

(...) than sluggish corporate behemoths like HP, which has only one product (HP Prime) that gets any attention at all, and only because of one dedicated person (Tim Wessman).
This part reminds me a bit to the book "last chance to see".

I'm really not sure if that whole Swissmicros company is more than a "pet project" of some (two?!) people. After doing some speculations on the serial numbers and how many calculators they sell per month, it doesn't seem to me as it is a business whereas the owners of the company do generate a fortune with it (at least not from the point of view of Swiss conditions). Including that you'll find some of them on linkedin, working on a normal daily job like many of us.

That means the whole thing is driven by passion. This has a lot of advantages to the customers.

Thanks for the update.
