Are you sure? I don't like to err.

What a fuss about not much.

We always said "Sticks & stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me".

If you have any criticisms of my programmes or opinions on calculators I'll be interested to see them.

As for my person - I'm beyond criticism.

How do you reconcile this text with your disclaimer?

I can collect bugs that are found, answer questions or provide help, clarify things, and respond to questions internally like "are there any general trends that people on the forums seem to be talking about". For example, I'm sure at least some people have noted that a lot of the called out "fixes" in the Prime release notes tend to suspiciously go back to individual threads on this forum and others. That doesn't mean complaining about things in a forum will guarantee resolutions, but it does go into the bucket of information to aid with prioritizing work and plans.

However, I am not an official spokesperson for HP so if I say something like "the USA should invade Canada" - that is not the official policy of the company.

While Guymonde may have been the 2187th member, his member number is 2386, which can be seen in the address bar of his profile. The number of members accounts for members whose profile has expired where member number is sequential. Your member number is 1024 and 2187 belongs to ... a newbie.

Tim,

Nevertheless....

There are times in your replies where you use the collective "we" which, in my opinion, does mean that you are officially replying for some "group". To me this implies that the "group" is a group within HP.

For example (from Post 7):

"I've put this on the list of things to look at and see what we might be able to do."

Is this statement your opinion or should it be taken at face value?

While you may not be an official spokesperson for HP Corporate, you do imply that you are a spokesperson for the HP Calculator Group within HP Corporate.

I realize your disclaimer is required by HP. But let's not kid ourselves too much here.

RE: Senior Membership
Can you introduce a half senior member please, then I have the chance to become that and stay there. The junior status was over much too fast. Can I get back please? Surely I never want to become a senior member, because thats what I am in real life. Sad

That's one small step for a man - one giant leap for mankind.

Oh yes, I was happy to be a junior member - I'm sure my mental age qualifies me as one.

RE: Senior Membership
The historical character Spicer-Simpson is mostly famous for exploits in WWI. His admiral wanted him to name 2 boats as "they were not convicts".

Simpson promptly came up with "Fifi" - rejected by the admiral, who accepted Simpson's second suggestion of "Mimi".

And here I am, numbered like a convict.

We can refer to you as member 2^10. Then you'd be a numerical expression. Smile

Like keeping the 50G, reissuing the 42S, correcting bugs in calculators mentioned above.

Yes, you got me again-not about the Prime Sad

Hope you're not offended by my comments. It's just a little sad to no longer be part of the target audience.

In case he doesn't like that simple expression, I would suggest him a slightly more complicated one: Smile

\[326\pi-\frac{1}{2}\left ( \frac{1}{\pi }+\frac{5}{\left \{\sqrt{5}\left [90+\pi ^{2}+\frac{1}{25\left ( 10+\frac{\pi }{2} \right )} \right ] \right \}^{2}}\right )\]


To be evaluated on the WP 34S (DBLOFF)
