No, it's not worth a penny, but I have a friend in Germany, and I'm sure I can ask him to help free you from the burden of having it occupy too much space in your home :-)

Seriously, the 9805 is listed as "extremely difficult" to obtain here at the MoHPC Web site, so I am sure there are a few collectors out there who're willing to pay more than a pretty penny for it!

victor; did you ever get the idea that your subtle yet piquant humor was not being appreciated to it's fullest level?


#17

I'm the first to admit that my humor isn't great (hey, I'm just a programmer, not a presidential candidate or something), although I fail to see what was 'piquant' about it. But at least I was talking about the subject at hand, namely the value of an HP-9805A, not about other contributors' style. I'd like to respectfully request that you do the same and not turn this site into another Usenet newsgroup. If you wish to continue with a personal attack (it MUST be that election season in the US!) please use my e-mail: vttoth @ vttoth.com.

I like your sense of humor. Maybe it's because we both grew up in middle Europe :-)


#19

I fully agree with Reinhard (maybe for the same reason).


#20

Hey, guys, thanks for the support! Yes, I agree, it must be that Middle Europe thing... one had to have a sense of humor to endure there. Then again, the fact that I left when I had the chance might indicate that my sense of humor is indeed underdeveloped... :-(

Seems that your intelligence is much higher than ours, just because you left Europe :-)


#22

Not sure if it's a matter of intelligence or sheer cowardice... I just ran away :-)

piquant = spicy. that alone or combined with "subtle" in refrence to a sense of humor is almost always a compliment. i'd stake my reputation as a former pretend-english teacher on that. it's too bad that words arent as exact as numbers. i think i'll stick to arithmatic, i can usually do that.


#24

db,

OK, I'll assume then that you paid my sense of humor a compliment (probably undeserved, I admit) and take everything back :-)
