Mysterious cross words on HP-48GX - J.M. Lecointre - 09-15-2006

Test this combination of keys on your HP-48 (mine is a GX one) and discover a secret grid of cross words hidden inside (various fornames) :

ON

[right shift] ENTRY [right shift] ENTRY

(this turns the calculator into ALG PRG mode)

[alpha] [alpha] RULES [ALPHA] [ENTER]

and then appears on the screen these mysterious crosswords...

Funny !

(by the way, I was learning how to rearrange some symbolic expressions when I discovered this)

This is an easter egg, found also on the HP-49g+. It shows people names involved in the HP-48GX making.

This last easter egg doesn't work on my HP-49g+

nor on my 48G.

(and neither does FRIENDS btw; only the GX seems to have any ;-)

Hi,

of course AMIGOS aren't related to the HP-48GX,

and this keyword easter egg isn't in the HP-48GX.

Maybe you meant the FHB (aka 49g;-)

Maybe, I haven't got neither the 48GX nor the 49G. I read news about these easter eggs in Educalc here, right for the 49G. Sorry.

Now that we cleared the way, just for fun, do you know HP-49g+ easter eggs (I know: RULES, "HpMad" typed into any enter form that starts a fast Tetris, "MINEISBETTER" typed into EQW that pops up a slow Tetris)?

Yes, I know, this is a serious Forum. But even engineers who design calculators (and have fun in hiding easter eggs) are serious! Aren't they?


Re: HP-49g+ easter eggs survey - J.M. Lecointre - 09-17-2006

Hi,
does anyone know if "RULES" is the only one "easter egg" hidden in the HP-48GX ?


Indeed! (N.T.) - Vieira, Luiz C. (Brazil) - 09-17-2006




Re: HP-49g+ easter eggs survey - Antonio Maschio (Italy) - 09-18-2006

Actually, RULES is reported on the AUR for the HP-49g+, so it shouldn't be considered as an easter egg. I discovered it yesterday. I don't know what about the HP-48 family.
