I feel like a data miner...

I feel like a data miner...

After so many frustrating attempts to find manuals and references to download them at the HP homepage, I gave up. BUT... after searching for an specific item I found an interesting link:

HP Business Support Center

By following manuals under Resources, youŽll just find calculators under mobile computing. And there you are...

Hope you enjoy as I did 8^D

Cheers.

I concur! Luiz is also a great mineiro. That's the Portuguese word for miner and also how people from the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais are called.

Hi, Gerson!

I did not see that coming...

Indeed, the name of the state I was born refers to mines. I missed that point... Thanks for mentioning! I can surely tell I was born a miner!

And thanks for your consideration, I appreciate that.

Cheers!

HP doesn't make it easy.

For some reason when I hear the term "data mining" I think about the song by Lee Dorsey "Working in a Coal Mine" from the '60's: Link

Here's a more recent "techno" rendition by Devo: Link

Regards,

John

Not exactly in the same line and a bit more tragic:

The Bee Gees - 'New York Mining Disaster 1941' (youtube link)

Myself half a miner (my father was from Luiz's state :-)

Regards,

Gerson.
