OK, I didn't remember the size exactly. The pdf file is abt 56MB in size and I don't think I should email something like that (except as a test for the mail relays). I'd guess with MIME coding the pdf expands to abt 100MB !!!
Instead of that I placed it onto my website. The address is:
Sorry, no ftp server.
The patent number is 3.859.635 and the title is simply "Programmable Calculator".
The document is 411 pages long and includes schematics, hardware description and ROM listings - enough to build yourself a 9810A.
Some versions of Netscape seem to have problems with such large files, so I'd recommend the Internet Explorer in this case (I prefer Netscape normally ... ) .
The connection should be fast enough (T3, T4, T5, T6 ??? - anyway, it should be no problem, it's the University connect and it's 9:21 p.m. now in Austria, so there's surely no problem from my side with the transfer rate. )
BTW: I'd like to know, how long the transfer took.
I don't have all the other patents, I just looked at them some time ago and seem to have a rather complete list of the TI and HP calculator patents, together with the machines they describes (these aren't mentioned in the patents).
There was a lot of new inventions introduced with this calculator, so there's some patents, but this document is what you want to have.
In exchange you could measure the diameter of the printers rubber roll (mine is disintegrating - an effect similar to the magnetic card readers rolls).
I hope you can use the paper and please send me an email when you have it, because I'll have to remove it from the server (the HDD is almost full).
