HP Vintage Calculator Collection on National TV And A National Tragedy!

Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK) had in it's series about all kinds of collections and collectors Geir Isene show his great collection of HP calculators (he had TIs also, but the HP ones steals the show :-). The episode can be viewed by following this link, the calculators appear around 17:18 into the program I found.

Now to the tragedy: That collection is no longer, it was lost in a fire! That is realy to bad...

Happy new year!

Happy new year to any that may pass here! Yea, I know I bit late, but, hey, happy new year!

Good time to start of the new year with what I hope to blog about here in the year to come...

1. Document Euclid for 35s. Particular I would like to make somekind of cheat sheet that shows what labels are assigned to which programs, what variables are used to what and user input/output. I realy missed this a while ago when wanted to use program at day time job. Good thing I had this blog then!

2. Learn to use and program the 50g. I started out fine, but then holidays happened and real job has been keeping me busy so fare in 08. First programming project will propably be a UserRPL Euclid. Later I hope to look into C programming on it. I make my living hacking Java these days, but I started out as a C programmer, this could be way to get to do some good old C hacking again :-).

3. I realy would enjoy to program the 41CV to, say ... ahem ... make an Euclid version for that to. What I would like with the 41CV compared to the 35s is the ability to name programs and assigne program to keys while in user mode. For these types of problem I for sure is going to miss 35s' vector type...

Well, see if get time to do any of this sometimes (may be a bit quiet here for a while...).
