Gerson --

Thank you for the clever holiday greeting, which I'm sure is gladly returned by all of us.

Looks kinda like a halfnut display...

Hi, Karl!

You're right! The HP-41 extended char set font by Luiz was helpful:

I really hope 2007 will be a remarkable year for all of you here! It's 08:00 P.M. now, wife's calling for dinner... See you all next year :-)

Gerson.

And I thought you had hand placed every single character. I'm so disillusioned - life has no meaning anymore :(

                        
Cheer up, AC!

Sorry to disappoint you, Anonymous C. I really tried to do it by hand last year... As you can see, I wouldn't make a good magician as I would always reveal my tricks :-)

Cheers,

Gerson.

Not too late here in the San Francisco Bay area. 23:49, but who's counting? 8)
Here's hoping the coming year holds less hatred in the world generally, and more HP RPN calculators for gadget-happy geeks like me specifically!

Regards, and best wishes for the new year,
Howard

Happy New Year to you all.

Like Matthias, I am getting married to the girl of my dreams in March, so my New Year resolutions are redecorating the house and sorting out the garden so there will, unfortunately, be less time for my HP calculators {but maybe a nice display case for them as a side benefit of the redecoration :-) }

Best wishes

James

Happy New Year to all in the Forum.

Matthias, do announce your wedding date and you can expect some HP41 collectible present (though you have the most of these) from me!

Best regards,
