|Museum Update Proposal|
Message #1 Posted by Walter B on 18 Aug 2005, 8:38 a.m.
Quite often I find informations about vintage calcs I am looking for in the paragraph "Other". There I read repeatedly:
This page lists calculators that are too new to be considered museum pieces.
This is certainly true for the KinPo models. I leave it for discussion whether they shall be granted access to the museum at all (I see no need). But there was more than metallized and/or coloured plastic earlier, which is not covered yet.
Proposal: Let's describe the last models with our beloved big ENTER key. ...the real thing! And if this will support the strive for new quality calcs showing this key again, also this will be OK for me ;)
On the scientific side, I think of the models 20s, 21s of 1989, 32sii of 1991 and the 48g family (g, gx, g+) starting 1993. Regarding financial ("business") calcs, I've no idea. But I'm confident enough folks in this forum know it by heart.
Nobody can argue we are too nervous (losing our towel), starting a description of these "junior veterans" 16 years after the first appeared. I am willing to help with pictures and/or writing some text, if wanted and within my possibilities.
Of course its up to the curator to decide about an update, the time and way to do it. I just wanted to express my feelings - perhaps some folks share them.
Just my 0,02 Euros.
