HP 15c LE bugs
Message #1 Posted by Alexander Oestert on 6 Sept 2012, 9:04 a.m.

Just curious: Has anyone who has registered their HP 15c LE with a bug complaint at the HP support website ever heard back from them? I have registerd in the week after I received it around a year ago and did not even get a t-shirt :-(

Edit: typo

Please see the blue print on page 5 of the WP 34S Owner's Manual. Those were the days ...

You might try and attach those inspired lyrics to some suitable music, perhaps you'd do well at the Eurovision Song Contest ... XD

Good old Mary Hopkin, from 1968. I remember the song well and fondly, as I was in US high school eleventh grade at the time, with not even a decent slide rule to my name. Old (now).

But given that year...perhaps the good old HP days were of the HP-9100 era.

Same here, this song brings fond memories of my youth, not that I understood a single word of it at the time.

That said, back then this song seemed to me waaaaay too long, i.e., somewhat boring (if very catchy) ! ... :)

I agree with you! When the song came I really enjoyed listening to it. I instantly became a Mary Hopkins fan. As time went by, I found it to be long and dragging!! I do have Hopkins' best hits and enjoy listening to them every now and then, to bring back nostalgic memories.

Ah...that's the most common error in reference to this artist. Her name is "singular", as Hopkin, not Hopkins.

As far as length...I like a song that I like to be long! Have you heard Joan Baez's performances of Dylan's Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands and Lily, Rosemary, and the Jack of Hearts? (And then...there's Iron Butterfly's In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, full-length version!)

We had our local version (video) so no problem with foreign words...
