I'm interested, despite the multi-year vitriol of the other thread ;)

That's life, my boy (I started HP with a 25C). If only 10% of those impatient lil'ones had supported us coding the project, you'd most probably have your 43S already for years. Alas, real life deviates from our wishes. :shock:

That is so true: I was wishing for an mountain-top laboratory in the Antarctic, staffed by grad students. 8-)

I have a 25 around here, I think, non-functional due to battery pack corrosion and missing external power supply. I *almost* miss eerily-glowing, red, segmented displays. Almost. :geek:

You probably know this already but just in case you don't: NEVER let any power supply close to your 25 unless it supplies just 3VDC of correct polarity! Forgetting this rule killed many innocent Woodstocks quickly...

I get very insecure plugging third party supplies into anything I want to keep. Having my 48’s IR printer let out the magic smoke in the middle of the night was bad enough, and that was with the provided power.

No, that device is unlikely ever to be powered up again.

I would like to request one from this Pilot Run if it is still open. :]

Thank you all (y'all to Texas). :D Everything is possible so far since we are focussing on our software. 8-)

Would you like to include a golden ratio number to the calc? 0,6180339887 or the same as ((5^0.5)-1)/2. So, it will be also the first calc with golden ratio number.) Along with pi-number, e-number.
