DM-42 in HP-41 font

Ugly and redundant, but it still makes me smile because it's the HP-41CX extended font. And a goose. :)

Nothing ugly about that goose! Even after almost 40 years, it still makes me smile... :D

Thanks Joe!

The goose!

Flying into Toronto and I had an HP moment:

The ATIS (automatic terminal information service aka the actual weather) stated that a “goose” was affecting all runways.

It was 05:30 so I asked: how big was the goose or conversely how fast was it to be able to affect all 4 runways simultaneously!

10 minutes later the ATIS Stated that “geese” were affecting all runways.

Point being, every time I hear “goose” I think about my synthetic routine that ran the goose backwards with droppings.

Yes Bob, nothiNg ugly about the goose!

And that reminds me of the many fun HP-41 displays that decorated the HHC 2009 website, such as this one, which includes a backwards-flying goose with droppings!

Those are some precision droppings, LOL

I recalled seeing this in the past, and in fact when reading the above, but not when/where it was. I should have thought of HHC, a very natural place for precision goose droppings.
