Thanks a lot guys, I will get the manual and owners book from Dave's wonderful DVD and I also sent an email to Joe Horn - thanks for the link to his webpage.
When I re-bought an 41CX a couple years ago, I also went out and tried to locate and buy all the books that have been written about this wonderful machine. From Wlodek's Red Bible to the Wickes and Jarett books and down to Dodin's book on Machine coding. I also got from Dave's, TOS's and Jake's DVD and painfully printed out and sorted all PPC, HHPC, CHUU etc articles and sorted them into math, tools, games, synthetic and machine coding. I just love reading and learning about those machines as much as possible - even got myself Meinderts MLDL and a HEPAX (that was my luckiest buy ever, what a fantastic module that one is) and learned a bit of machine coding. Not that my brain will ever allow me to play in the ranks of the grandmasters here on the forum but I simply enjoy the process of learning and getting better a little bit every day.
So my interest in the those books is genuine and they will (hopefully the right tense) be read and carefully followed through page by step (I did all exercises from Wlodek in the Red Bible, although I failed on a couple).
Anyway, I will start with printing out the manuals and follow them, and maybe by the time I am through with them, somehow there might be a way for me to learn from those two books as well. I have also recovered from the HHPC Datafile most articles about the 71, either from Jake's DVD or from Valentin's webpage (thanks for that Valentin). After the manual I should be in much better shape to understand them ;-)
Thanks again and please let me know of any other advice you can offer to me in learning this new machine.
