Joe, why take the MoHPC so seriously, as the "community"? Appreciating everybody posting here, especially Dave Hick's efforts to keep the MoHPC going on, all in all it is nothing more than an Internet site. If someone offends me, when I ask something I do not understand, showing me that everybody knows everything about this except me, who cares. If I still do not understand, I will ask again, taking no care about an offensive post of someone else.
Everybody can rant on me on any Internet forum, hiding behind his/hers computer screen. Nobody would dare to do it in real life, believe me.
So, if you in future need any information about your HP33s and/or HP49g+, or any other HP or nonHP calculator, or any machine, gadget or appliance, you should ask, here, or in any other forum on the Internet, dependent on the subject. People here come and go. I remember Glynn, Norm Hill (aka Captain America), Viktor Toth, my friend Dave Colver, ... - I do not see posting them here any more. Once when they, or anybody else, come back with a question, an opinion, an answer, a proposal, or a procedure, who is the one who should complain about it.
For each of my posts I may also say "this is the last one", until I will be in need of another piece of information, or if I see somebody asking how to solve something I know. In that case I try to prepare an answer, but I already know that Luiz Claudio will be faster;)
In case the "community" ignores me for a reason that in someones opinion I ask too much, there is always another opinion. Just fill the name field with something as "Pamela", "Marina", "Renata" or "Sylvia" and ask: how to add two numbers on my sister's HP19C. I will certainly obtain more than 10 answers and the answer is what I needed. How do I know this? This is just how I behave when I see such an entry in the Name field;)
Please, just relax and do not take any Internet forum, even a very polite one like moHPC, so seriously. At least, we are only discussing "old junk" here, that means nothing to most people around us. Imagine a forum of old washing machines collectors - what you would think when you see them discussing errors in their instruction manuals, undocumented features, big "start" button in the centre of their control plate instead of the small one in its down right corner ...
