HP, one-stop shopping for all your business needs;-)




Three quite interesting articles there, Bill - thanks for the link. As someone who works from home a lot of the time, I'll take all the help I can get.

My office looks like the one in http://h71036.www7.hp.com/hho/cache/425-0-0-39-121.aspx, only it has many more books in the shelves (actually, here's an old pic - it's even worse now). And on the other side of the office, there's another 2 meter tall bookshelf, with one shelf full of HP calculator manuals and maths books. Any tips that can save space are welcome!

Toss anything more than ten years old in the bin. Except for maybe the one volume of Knuth (why only one?)...

A Win95 resource guide... very useful :-)


Consider the Win95 and NT resource kits gone, Randy. I've also tossed the books on ancient Slackware and Caldera Linux. But I'm keeping the books on REXX and PL/I for sentimental reasons. ;)

As for Knuth - all three volumes are there - Vol 1 ("Fundamental Algorithms") is in green paperback form and is hidden behind the other two - Volume 3 is slightly obscuring Vol. 2, so that might be why they look like one, but you can *just* make out the two Addison Wesley logos at the bottom of the spines. In any case, your eyesight is excellent!

I never knew they had been published in paperback. It's absolutely amazing what one can learn when discussing calculators!

PS: Your overloaded shelf caused me to do some cleaning as well. A bunch of Delphi and old VB stuff got the pitch. My three volumes of Knuth, original issue Intel 8008 and 8080 manuals will never go!
