(additional stuff) the most important words I forgot (writing in a rush has such effect... Sorry!). I would have answered to your posts promptly, as many others did and would have done, if the chance was given, without any additional comments or off-line e-mails. I actually did not read them in time to add something that other contributors had not yet add, so I just read them. Also, I do not own an HP35S (yet, at least), so I would never be sure if my answers were accurate. As others have already mentioned, we love helping people to use their HP calculators, and you are no exception at all. And thanks for your kind words, Hrast... (end of additional stuff)
I am not posting too very often here because of private, personal reasons. I realy like this Forumīs environment and neighborhood, people are friendly and handy... BUT not all of the ones that actually visit this forum (mostly read, seldom post) follow some simple, common decorum rules.
I wrote about this a few times before: I'm a guest here, both as a foreigner (I'm from Brazil, as I mentioned beside my name) and as a contributor (in fact, Dave Hicks is the only one that can tell 'Iīm not a visitor' in this particular way...), so I believe I must behave accordingly. Even if it is only to deserve staying amongst all of these good people, sharing so too many good and important information. (In fact, I cannot think of behaving differently in real life, wherever I am, whoever I'm dealing with)
I'm also a teacher (some guys are also tired of reading about this, too...), and I cannot consider a dumb person the one that tries to learn. In fact, I tell my students: 'There is no such thing as a dumb question; there are, indeed, dumb people that cannot give a question the deserved answer and respectfull attention'. Well, sometimes I shorten this to lesser words, though...
Anyway, as you can see (and read) from the others who followed your post up (some of the current finest representatives of this forum's contributor staff), people here care for each other. Could it be better? I guess not. I myself feel I'm home here, no pun intended at all.
Now it is my time to go ahead and deal with my daily stuff. I just could not leave without posting this time.
