Seriously, I wonder if the seller really wants to sell this book.

Because I don't believe someone will buy.

What is in the head of this people?

Shocked, regards

OR worse....never mind...

I've noticed that despite some Grapevine books of this series, we don't have this particular easy...42s in the museum stick.

I wonder if no one took the time to scan it, or Grapevine didn't allowed...anybody knows?

I know someone who has a copy of this book and has graciously offered to sell it for half of the eBay asking price. Smile

I figure if we already have a couple of Grapevine titles on the Museum flash drive then it's okay to copy others. I'm prodding the person to scan the book.

I have got a copy. I'll start scanning tomorrow. May take a week or so with my schedule, but we really need to have it in the library.

Really thanks John, we all here will appreciate having access to this book, specially with the 42s revival with the DM42 around the corner.

Cheers

You are welcome.

The question comes up as to where is the best place to send scans of documents and manuals. We can send them to Dave, but no disrespect, we don't know if and when there'll be another flash drive release. A live site like hpcalc.org or hpmuseum.net provides better access to the documents.

Totally agree, Dave, but I think we have to wait Dave Hicks give his approval, because, I'm not sure, Grapevine must have give permission directly to him.

If Grapevine was still in business I should be able to order a copy off Amazon, but I can't. So if someone were to post a link to a scan of the book should they be concerned that Grapevine is going to file a lawsuit?

I really don't know how to answer this, Dave.

All I know is that it will be nice to have access to the scan of this book Soon!

I just own the book, and know how to use the Post Office. Dave did all the work scanning and OCR-ing, he gets the credit here.

Just what the doctor ordered to accompany the soon-to-be-released DM42.
