Concise Calc History - Tim Wessman - 09-30-2005

Where can I find a concise histroy of calculators since the beginning? A few pages of who did what first, advancements, etc.

Thanks.

Just make sure you find a history that has the following item:

December 1, 2005: Tim Wessman and John Evers change the surveying world forever when their 49g+ solution is unveiled.

:-) Be glad when you guys have it available! I think it will be a big hit!

There may be no one 100%-super-perfect-site. I guess the information is scattered around the Internet and you'll find pieces of the puzzle here and there. Very good pieces you'll find here at our all favourite HP-Museum, other pieces you can find her:
http://www.snarc.net/pda/pda-treatise.htm. Maybe other members of this community will give more links. Have fun putting the pieces together.

@db: sad, bad, but true...

@Tim: Have a look at www.finseth.com/~fin/hpdata.html

Down the site you will find an "Evolution Chart". It is an interesting view in very compact and concise format regarding the HP calculators.
