Actually, it's much easier than all the stuff posted. As long as you download the file properly (ya, that part bit my ass). Use your left hand to hold three wires steady, and your right hand to press the power button on the inverted 30B body, you are golden. No need for resistors, or thingies that hold the cables in place. I might do a write up, but currently I'm more lazy than Walter at Octoberfest...

Please tell me how lazy - I did never go there ...

Well, I doubt you are lazy. But I thought it was the unwritten code to mention you or Paul in someway in every post... :-)

Oh, and speaking of overlays, I emailed Eric over a month ago and have had no response. Is the Euro source good to go? I picked up a 20B for $5 USD and thought it would make a good WP 31. And can use backup overlays for my two 34s.

For 5$, you can hardly complain. Though I'd prefer the 30B by far for its keyboard.

About 'the Euro source': I'm neither affiliated to it nor did I order anything there (enough WP34S and 31S here ;) ), I just got the information from another aficionado and posted it on this forum. It sounds reasonably priced to me, so I'd give it a try.

Walter,
wow, guess I haven't been on in a while.
I got my two 30b for WP 34s (only set up one so far), but thought for $5, an HP-20B would be great to do a WP 31 just to have it.

Hope everyone is staying sane and safe.

Leo, even a WP31 deserves a reasonable rotation-and-click keyboard IMO.
