Hi;

I'm not gonna tell you about wiping all memory out, but I just want to add two small advice for dealing with Synth Programming on the HP41:

The mass storage (card reader, disk drive, tape drive) work great, The PPC ROM has a hey assignment program in the ROM. If you have a bar code reader, there are several good key assignment programs. I could look up the decimal codes for the byte grabber (BG7). Email me if you need a hard copy of the bar codes, etc for key assignment programs (free).
