It seems from the various posts here the only thing needed is to restart from a true power off state. Removing a battery makes it work. Do it twice if the first time doesn't do it.

Also without the cable.

The normal key function (APPS, MODE, etc) was moved to a long press.
I thought of hiding the vars menu as something temporary. However, I like your idea of going back to normal press when the menu is not visible. Showing VARS in the dark menu seems like a step backwards to me but it makes hiding vars more permanent. I'll probably implement it soon as it gives a retro-UI mode that many people will find comfortable.

The fonts are variable width for a reason. Those letters look better when wider. Almost every font has wider m and w. Same as i l and t being narrower. Numbers are all the same width so digits can align well in columns.
All fonts were artfully crafted by our friend Helix, and I want to take this opportunity to say they look great, and to give him due credit for an excellent job.
