HP machines were strongly recommended in my college math classes and EE coursework, so my first machine would have been an HP-48G (not counting the HP-35 my father still has on his desk.) Probably the most difficult thing I did was write some formulas to solve "Mohr's Circle" in Strength of Materials class and some resonant circuit stuff in a microwave class.

Today I have an HP-41CX that gets a lot of questions from the folks at the office (an electric utility) and an HP-49g+ that I have yet to get serious about. Somewhere in a box of college stuff is that trusty HP-48G.

Hobbies include amateur radio, the saxophone and (when I have time) model rockets, shortwave radios [Zenith Transoceanics, etc.] reading about astronomy & astronauts.

I like to hear the old stories about folks with "Lunar Lander" and real-time controllers running on their old HP hardware.

If I have even more time, I'd spend it roaming around New Mexico and Washington State collecting odd bits of junk and dreaming what could be built from it all.
