Today it is my 30th birthday! Im going to become an old man (sorry guys).... As a small present for you I updated my website with some new pictures and accessories. Just have a look at them, there is some really rare stuff.

http://www.hp-collection.org

By the way: Next month I will move my house for a larger room for all my HPs....

Yours,
Matthias

Hi Matthias! Best wishes for your 30th birthday, but please don't talk about "becoming an old man"... or what should I say as I'm going to be 39 in a couple of months...?? All HP enthusiasts will always be young as their calcs are... (at least I hope ;) ). Cheers. Giancarlo

Dear Matthias,

gratulation for your birthday. Compared to the great volumen size of your nice HP collection - 30 years are a small number :-)

With best wishes - Christoph Klug

At 30, you hadn't been born when HP started making pocket calculators. You are still young. Enjoy!

(Some of us are a few decades older....)

I'd like to be 30 again. And again. And again.

When I was 30, I'd been using my HP-28S for 3 years.

Hi Matthias don`t care about those 30 years! I was 30 years of age when the HP-35 arrived in 1972 (I bought the red dot...) and still going strong... Enjoy your birthday!

Congratulations---and amazing--you come across wiser than your years :-)

Regards,

Bill

Also remarkable that you caught the "bug"--considering your age.

I lag by one! I just turned 29, so I appreciate the 'old-man' worries :)

We're still young, no big deal ;)

Congrats!

Congrats Matthias, and remember (especially in 30 years) that one is only as old as people think one is, so just behave funny and childish and no-one will ever call you old.

Love the pictures!

Cheers

Peter

Hi, Matthias;

it's been 13 years I was 30 Y.O... about becomming an old man?! I like Einstein's view: that's relative...

Anyway, congratulations for your 30th birthday (I thought I posted a message in the same day you announced, but I see it somehow got lost...) and I hope the celebrations were the way you wanted them to be. BTW, completely off-topic: you mention you sing, right? That's interesting, because I'm always thinking of what do the contributors actually do when they're not dealing with calculators, their families and/or their professional activities (plus accessing the MoHPC forum...8^). Also, you're a teacher.

I wonder what do others do when they're not here... well, at least what they do that we can be told about... d8^\

Best regards, Matthias.

Luiz (Brazil)
