HP calculator calendar 2014



#18

Hi all, i've made a 2014 calendar from various photos from my collection .

It can be viewed and purchased HERE

Hope you enjoy - it was hard to decide what photos were 'in' and 'out' with only 12 months. I may do another that includes vintage pocket computers. Let me know if there are any that you would like to see included. Cheers, Keith

Keith my friend, I just ordered a calendar. Nothing nicer than going through 2014 looking at these beauties!! :-)

Cheers,

Namir (who can't seem to sleep)

Thanks Namir! I hope you like it! I have also ordered one - I will hang in my office. I only make a few dollars on each sale, so i'm not doing this to make money, just thought it would be a great way for HP calculator enthusiasts to enjoy these machines. Some rare prototypes, clear cases and one-off productions in this calendar, so it's certainly a bit different.

#21

I should also add that each individual photo is available by going HERE

These make great postcards or gift cards - i've got a few of them and the quality is very good.

Hello Keith



Surprisingly, it seems that you miss the excellent CASIO fx-602P.

Is this intentional?



Kind regards.

Hi Jean-Michel (not Jean Michel Jarre?!),

No that is one that I don't have in my collection! It is an wonderful machine though. There are actually many calculators that I would like to have in the collection, but my focus has been on HP and Sharp so far. I guess that's what keeps collectors going - something to aim for.

Wouldn't be great if he WAS Jean-Michele Jarre????? I saw Jarre in his free concert at Monaco two years ago.

That would be awesome indeed!! Well it would make sense that Jean Michel Jarre would appreciate HP calculators - he only uses the best vintage synthesizers afterall! On that note, I wonder if you can program a 71B to play Oxygene Part II?

#26

Jean-Michel is a very popular French name, as you know. Wikipedia alone has entries for about eighty such given names:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean-Michel

It doesn't matter whether Jean-Michel is in that list or not. Most importantly, he's a forum member, someone who appreciates HP calculators like us and has great 3D modelling skills, as you know:

Gerson (not on any list, not even in the phone directory of my city :-)

One of the first music cassettes I purchased as a child was "Magnetic Fields" by Jean Michel Jarre way back in about 1982. I still play the iTunes version often (Les Chants Magnetiques), so if there's a chance that it's that person (and i'm a realist, don't worry), then that is truly amazing!
And now that i've seen the 3D rendering of the HP-forum Jean Michel, i'm just as humbled. Great work indeed!

#28

On said Casio calc are a number of keys with multiple functionality, like e.g. [9]. There's only one shift key, however. Alpha seems to be set by [INV][MODE]. Can anybody tell me how to reach shifted non-alpha functions like sigma_n-1, n, ), FIX, or pi? I tend to be confused by Casio keyboards.

d:-?


#29

Walter, you can find the fx-602p manuals here.


#30

Merci bien, Didier!

I also find its older sibling the Casio FX-502 to be appealing with its yellow segmented LCD display, plus it has a place in musical history as it was used for some music synthesis featured in the Kraftwerk song Pocket Calculator from 1981.

If I could get hold of one I would like to have a Casio AI-1000 pocket computer where the built in language is LISP. I'm not sure how much one can do in 32k, but it has a 4 line display and LISP keywords printed on the keyboard which makes a nice change from BASIC. Trying to reimplement the Little Lisper book's examples on the machine would make a nice challenge for a long journey.

Very nicely done.

HP would be proud. This is an excellent homage to and sequel to the original one HP created back in '82.

Thanks!

Thank you Matt
