Hey, Gerson, thanks! I appreciate your comments about the book.
In fact, my first one, writen in 1994/1995; took me three months writing, finished in January. I know that there are some `typos` and some stuff is missing, but I was so excited with the idea of having it published that I did not care too much. I remember that the revisor asked me if I did not miss something in the sentence:
"Avaliar é executar a ação associada ao objeto avaliado"
(To evaluate is to perform the action related to the object being evaluated)
He asked me "What is the action to be performed?". I thought I'd need some extra time to explain him, but I decided to ask him please to RTFM, in a polite way, of course, prior to discuss the subject... I hope I was not rude, though.
It will be a pleasure to sign your sample. Please, be my guest sending it and I'll add a few words of mine, too. BTW, have you been told about this subject? The English version exists, but has not yet been disclosed. As the Portuguese version is already available to be downloaded through the HP site, Brazil, I think there is no trouble spreading this news around, though.
About the HP34C and its LED display, I'd be more than happy to try to repair it, thanks. I am running out of free time these days, but in my vacation time I think of going ahead with some interrupted activities (good activities) related to HP calculators, electronics and the like.
Wrote too much, sorry folks.
Best regards and thanks again.
