Free Calculator Day


A co-worker gave me a virtually brand new 17BII last week. I doubt it's been touched in the last 15-18 years (I believe its a 1993 model). Not having many business models in the collection, this is a fine addition. And after a new set of batteries, and 20 minutes of playing just about everything is self explanatory except one feature: pressing MODES and BEEP a few times to set the beeper off and on, there is also a BEEPER ON: APPTS ONLY setting. Whatever could this be for?



The manual is here.


Fantastic. Thanks Katie.



Wow! That is so cool!


Note that early 17BII models had a dangerous bug, see:
