Gene, Pete and Jake as well as Richard, thanks for the interesting articles. The HP 30b is on the desk as well as the 41CX (again). Nothing like a good magazine to cause one to haul out the calcs from the display case.
As with any essay, thesis or article, typos manage to squeak through. Having read and re-read and had others do the same, somehow the instructions on page 4 of 13 on my restoration article got duplicated in mid stream replete with the appropriate sequential numbers!
Easy fix but to late for the editor to change it; so it you are reading that article, remove instructions 7 through 12 associated with figure 5, smoothing the label. It is obvious when you read the instructions, but what the heck. These are just repeats of the first 6 instructions:
7. Heat the label.
8. Remove the label.
9. Remove the adhesive from the label, citric based adhesive
remover will work.
10. Remove the adhesive from the bottom shell.
11. Place the label between two thick sheets of vinyl, an
ID .holder works well.
12. Place the ID holder and label facing up on a flat surface; a
thick glass pane on a kitchen counter for example
The other articles are fantastic and Richard Nelson has given us something that we all will find informative, historical and interesting.
