So, Now I'm back home.. So, lot of you have made a propositions for our meeting.. Let us fix two dates and see, on which date we would be more:

august 30 (for long distance riders.. you can perhaps sleep here in Basel)

september 20 (sleeping possible too)

PLEASE. Give us your prefered date as fast as possible, even if you can on both dates).... Side activities...: Is not organized jet, but I love the idea of Thibaut to visit the Vitra Designer Museum Topics: Everthing you desire (programmers, repairing, trading, discussing, watching items, .... but please inform us. Perhaps some of you want to organize a workshop?) I will organize food and I will keep clean my appartment for you..

Weekend of August 30 is OK for me. September 20 not. A week later (september 27) is OK.

I would vote for Sept 20 please , I'm on holiday end August.

And yes, some side activities such as software workshops (hints in programming) and hardware (simple problem repair) would be great ! Of course any cultural activities are welcome !

I'm not shure what you mean:

a) What will cost a hotel to sleep in Basel? b) Question to the public, if we should reat a room for our meeting.

I think, you mean a) but please tell me...

Hmm, difficult... The 9815A is a hardware class of its own. What exactly do you mean with "sick"?

The display doesn't turn on anymore; it was working OK until a few hours before shipping it to me (at least the seller was kind enough to sensibly lower the price for it).

Thanks,
Massimo

Seems as if either the display is broken (very bad, spare parts only from another 9815) or there is a contact problem (very easy, just open the 9815 and check every board). Have you checked the fuse? Can you print the x-register (press PRINT)? If yes: the display is propably broken.

I have a 9815 with a flakey display. Several segments are either blank or very weak with only partial gas discharge along their length that changes as other digits are entered. I think it is the display module but could be the high voltage supply. I think one may be able to use the display from a Compucorp/Monroe/Sumlock machine. I have been meaning to try this for a long time... I have a Compucorp with a corroded keyboard.

Here's an italian one :-) Both dates proposed should be fine.

When I mentioned this to my wife she soon asked to be there with me for tourism and shopping :-(

So I too would be interested to know about the price and availability of rooms in decent hotels.

Thanks,
Massimo
