Web site update



#16

Hi, all:

    I've just updated my HP-calc web site to include the following materials:

      Additional challenges and mini-challenges online:

      • Short & Sweet Math Challenge #16: Thinking Square !

      • HP-15C Mini-Challenge: Sin

      • HP-15C Mini-Challenge: Impossibly Short !?

      • HP-15C Mini-Challenge: Bits o' Pi

      • HP-15C Mini-Challenge: Speeding it Up !

    All of them are freely downloadable in PDF format for maximum convenience. You might find them useful for ease of reference or if you missed them the first time around.

Best regards from V.

Hi, Valentin;

first of all, congratulations and thanks for sharing your articles with us. They are always welcome!

And forgive me if I ask a silly question: how can I download the files? I found no specific link to the PDF files, but I surely did not look for them correctly. Does it need subscription or registration of some kind? I also noticed that you mention three TTF files for the HP35S. Are these available as well?

Thanks again and forgive me if the answers to my quesions are, say, obvious d8^(

Best regards from Brazil.

On Valentin's site it says:

This site is under construction, be patient!

If something goes wrong, don't get alarmed, it will be fixed soon.




When everything is done, there will be a menu to the left...

Hi, Meenzer;

thanks for your reply. I actually based my observations after reading Valentin´s post, where one reads:

Quote:

I considered that Valentin would add some reference for future availability, if this was the case. I also considered the chance of having some missed parts in the HTML script, so I decided to ask for directions.

Thanks again.

      Thanks for your interest. And yes, these files are available for free, no subscription or registration required, it's just that I pasted the wrong link,
      this is the correct link and I've also edited my original post to reflect the change.

      Thanks for bringing it to my attention, I hope you'll enjoy all materials available there.

Best regards from V.

Hi Valentin.

I rushed to download the files as well, but seems like the links on the left column of the website disappeared...

Don't want to urge - just a reminder.

Best regards.

Hi, Valentin;

now I see the menu at the left side of the main page; thanks.

I'd like to add that this is the kind of look I like to see in a website: concise, with the necessary information and good looking. Of course, by good looking I mean the looks I like to see. And I like it blue.

I'm not sure if this was on purpose (and maybe it has a meaning...), but I noticed that the custom picture of the HP15C in the upper, left corner is inverted.

Thanks again for sharing these goodies with us.

Best regards from Brazil.

      You're welcome. I'm sorry for the inconvenience, I simply copy-pasted the wrong link, entirely my fault.

    "I'd like to add that this is the kind of look I like to see in a website: concise, with the necessary information and good looking. Of course, by good looking I mean the
    looks I like to see. And I like it blue."

      Thanks a lot for your appreciation, my daughter Laura is sure to be delighted to read your kind comment on her efforts. She is a budding mangaka and designer and blue is also her favorite color, as you can see in these two recent original drawings created by her:

    • Mermaid finds love

    • Don't be blue

    "I'm not sure if this was on purpose (and maybe it has a meaning...), but I noticed that the custom picture of the HP15C in the upper, left corner is inverted."

      *That's* not my fault ! :-) I hadn't noticed ! (must be getting old fast). I'll let her know at once to see it corrected. There's no meaning at all, as far as I know, I think it's just a misstep on her part. Since I paid her for it and it's still under warranty, she'll have to comply.

    "Thanks again for sharing these goodies with us."

      My pleasure. I'm now far too busy, but I'll try to make available new materials on a regular basis, possibly weekly. Materials to upload include more S&SMC's and Mini-challenges from the past, articles, scanned brochures, calc pics, and perhaps even a little remembrance in the form of scanned letters and assorted documents of the golden PPC and PPC TN times.

    Thanks a lot for your interest and extremely kind comments, and

Best regards from V.

Wow! As someone who is very into manga/anime/etc., I must say she is very talented indeed! I haven't a whit of artistic ability in my bones, and I'm always amazed at some of the drawings that people are able to make. That first one, with the mermaid, was awesome!!

thanks,

      Thank you very much indeed for your kind, appreciative remarks. You've made Laura's day and so mine as well ! :-)

      She was delighted to read your comments and told me that the difference between both drawings consisted mainly in the technology used to create them. The mermaid one was directly drawn in the PC's screen using a graphics tablet with pressure-sensitive electronic pen, while the other one was drawn in plain paper with a normal pen, then scanned into the computer. This accounts for the different quality of the lines: digitally vs analogically produced.

Hi, Valentin;

please, allow me to congratulate Laura for her magnificent work. (they are not only drawings, they are far beyond that...8^)

I have seen some manga before, and I have no specific knowledge to judge, but her work looks so close to the original style that I can´t tell the difference from hers and original Japanese art.

You should be proud (I am sure you are, just a reinforcement...).

Best regards from Brazil.

Hi, Luiz:

    Thank you very much for your kind comments on my daughter's drawings, but she *insisted* in replying to you personally so I'll let her speak for herself (best regards from V ...):

      Hi! Thanks a lot for your extra-kind comments!! I'm glad you liked my drawings, really! =D I'm so proud of them, they took me so many days to have them perfectly finished ... but it was worth the trouble! I have some more in a website (google for "deviantart mirechan" if interested), and I'll be doing more soon (school permitting, hehe)

      Well, thank you very very much for liking them, I'll try my best to keep the good work! =). As my father would say:

      Best regards from L (haha)

I know this is a *complete* lark, but I'd love to see a character punching in a number on an HP calc. ;-) Maybe we could even make it a mascot for the site or something...

Or, maybe that's too geeky for artists... ;-)

Good stuff, Laura!

thanks,
bruce
