Hi, L.G., guys;
I am an Electrical Engineer as well, but I live in another country (thus, I face another reality). Please, LG, allow me to add a few words that may lead you to another view of the actual facts linked to the CD/DVD set of the MoHPC.
Mainly, all of us here liek having, using and keeping HP calculators. Information about them is welcome as well. Although I actually discuss HP calculators internals, repairing, programming and keystroke-based use, I had just a small knowledge of the actual universe of information available about them. I had no more than eight HP calculators when I began reading about them here. Now I own more than 60, and I keep them all the best way I can. I use them, I am not a collector. I know how to use them, I am not a collector (collectors do not necessarily know how to use the items in their collections, they may simply collect). So, when I found the MoHPC and I could contact people here, I found myself in the need to cooperate somehow.
I repaired calculators, I posted about programming and keystroke use, and I scanned some material I have as originally printed. I also had the chance to know about many other stuff I was not even aware of, and I printed many of the documents available at the CD/DVD pack.
I could not buy any of these when they were available because I was not even known about them.
I would not be able to buy copies of them now so easily, because they would be somehow expensive.
So, for us all in here, Dave Hicks is blessed. And we are, somehow, blessed by the opportunity he gave us when offering the CD/DVD pack with so too many information we would like to have access to, that whatever we pay for it is far bellow scale. Final costs are, indeed, neglectable.
That's why many of us felt the need of answering you so fast. The CD/DVD pack offered by Dave Hicks is, somehow, beyond our own expectations. It has more than any one of us, as isolated users, would need. But surelly offers each one of us, as a collective, whatever information wee need.
Hope you understand.
P.S. - Please, forgive any typos, it's not been spell checked...
