Rest assured that Nigel did all of the hard work. I just asked for features and tested the versions he developed.

The process started quite a while ago. I believe I first contacted Nigel back in January 2013, regarding the 2-line display mode that he had developed and introduced at the Forum. We corresponded a few times, and I eventually decided to ask him if he could implement something I had really, really wanted for a long time, some sort of complex operating mode for the wp34s. Nigel was receptive to the idea, but of course could not promise anything. I inquired once (around November 2013) regarding progress. He said he had done some work and actually had a preliminary version with a complex lock feature. I was glad to hear that, but did not want to be a pest so I did not inquire again.

I had kind of forgotten about it, when out of the blue on January 3rd, 2015, Nigel sent me a message asking if I was still interested in a complex mode for the wp34s. I replied that I certainly was, and he soon sent me his first version. I tested, requested changes, Nigel complied with most requests and/or improved on my suggestions and/or added new features that he thought of and sent new versions. We repeated this process for a few rounds. Nigel was very patient with my many requests. I thought we were about done, when again, out of the blue, he sent me a version with the polar entry/display mode. I had certainly wanted such a mode, but figured that would be over-the-top and had never even asked for it. A couple more rounds of testing and bug finding and we arrived at the version Nigel just presented.

I think it is a very useful addition to the capabilities of the wp34s. I hope that at least some wp34s users will find it useful. I'll try to answer any questions or offer input as to why it does this or that.

Thanks again Nigel. Fantastic work!
