This appeared buried in today's local paper (The Oregonian, Friday Jan 6, 2000). What it means, I don't know, but thought some might find it of interest. It's definitely one way to receive personal attention from HP.
Hewlett-Packard bomb scare just calculator sent for repair
CORVALLIS -- About 100 Hewlett-Packard employees were evacuated from their building last week when company officials suspected a package might be a mail bomb.
Instead, the brick-sized package -- wrapped in brown paper and tied in orange and blue cord -- turned out to be a calculator, mailed to the company from Honolulu for repair.
The package's return address was marked as a post office box that could not be confirmed.
Employees were allowed to return to work after officials tracked down the man whose name was on the package in Honolulu.
