HP35s - The Buggy Little Beast (Report to Hrast)


Sergeant-Major, Sir, the requested report is on your desk, Sir.

If I may speek freely, I think it deserves emulation on something else (e.g. 50g) after the ROM is available.


OK, soldier. Good work. I will read your report when I'll be back because I am outside of Croatia at the moment ...


Young user shouts,

" Recognizing that I volunteered as an RPN Zealot, fully knowing the hazards of my chosen technique, I will always endeavor to uphold the prestige, honor, and high esprit-de-corps of my RPN/RPL sect.

Professing the fact that an RPN Zealot is a more elite user who arrives at the cutting edge of solutions by keystroke, program, or sheer cheek, I accept the fact that as an RPN Zealot my sect expects me to think further, faster and solve harder than any measly algebraic user.

Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong, and morally straight and I will shoulder more than my share of the task, whatever it may be, one hundred percent and then some.

Readily will I show the world that I am a specially gifted user who wields a well-engineered tool. My courtesy to superior users, efficiency of memory, and care of equipment shall set the example for others to follow.

Perspicuously will I meet the tribulations of my profession. I shall defeat them with speed of solution for I am better trained and will solve with all my might. Surrender is not a an RPN Zealot word. I will never leave a fallen unit to fall into the hands of the internet price hikers and under no circumstances will I ever embarrass my sect.

Loyally will I display the intestinal fortitude required to solve on to the RPN Zealot objective and complete the mission, though I be the lone survivor.

Reversers leads the way!"

Sergeant-Major hardly glances up, "Excellent; dimissed."

I confused. What the heck this all about?


It is only satire...



I still confused. Is there a new emulator?


Sadly, no; just hopes and rantings to pass the time


The above exchanges are priceless. Only on this Forum. Reading them made my day!



Why 35s emulator? I thought each of us should get one of the real thing.


I thought each of us should get one of the real thing.

Why just one? Buy two to ten of them. Maybe we drive up demand for them and HP start making more calculators.

Sadly, no [new emulator]; just hopes and rantings to pass the time

On the other hand, what was that military dispatch all about, hey?

Hrast being the HP rom-based calculator emulator wizard that he is, might that have concerned a ROM dump of a certain beast we are all coming to know?

Hope springs eternal.



I was following the odd humor that initiated this thread as my coffee brewed; strange and unintelligible wit usually only happens prior to caffeination.


Well, that's true, but too much caffeine will make one babble nonsense as well. 8)



Just to make the first two posts clear:

Nenad and I were just joking. He made a post some time ago about being the first one to have a HP-35S here and I said that I am expecting a report on my desk in a few days. So, the report is now on my desk :-)

We were talking about a possibility to develop an HP-35S emulator for HP-50G and (as usual) I said that we only need to extract the ROM, which isn't a simple task at all. This is the meaning of "I think it deserves emulation on something else (e.g. 50g) after the ROM is available" ... Don't take it too serious.

To Howard: Did you receive my last mail (with some attachments) few weeks ago?

Yes, I did Hrast. I intended to reply after I got a chance to try the new 71X out. But then I got very busy and didn't get around to it. Thanks for the update!
