Hello Hans-Peter,

I understand this idea vey well. But it would require some fundamental changes of the original HP firmware of each calculator, which is beyond my intentions and capabilities. I like it when the calculator is basically still the same. The many enhancements I made didn't change the character of the calculators.

And still all of them are RPN Smile

Bernhard - since it seems I must have at least 1 of everything you craft, please add me to the list of future purchasers! Nice work.

RE: Woodstock Low Power
Final layout has been sent to manufacturer. I expect to receive the LP boards next week. Software is running too. Minor bugs only in some of the calculators, so I have one more week for debugging.

This means, the LP circuit will be available next week. I'm very glad about it.

I didn't keep track of all of you, who showed interest in this board. Thank you for waiting so long. As soon as the LP circuit appears on my website next week, it will be ready to order (e-mail to sales at panamatik dot de).

Still waiting for the PCBs. Only some days left

Latest firmware additions:

All 110 programs can be given a 12 character name by entering alphanumeric text besides its number from 0-109. Before loading or saving a user program you can step through a directory of all programs, showing their names or numbers, until you find the right program or find a free slot. Then load or save this program with just one key press.

When pressing any key or prefixed key for more than a second, the name of its function ("SIN", "COS" etc.) is displayed as long as the key is hold down. This reminds you of the function of the actual calculator and helps if the right keyboard overlay is not present.

When changing one of the 20 user flags and hold down its key for more than a second, the function of this flag is shown as text on the display ("AUTO SLEEP" "REPEAT KEY" etc.) to remind you about its meaning.

Bug list decreased very slowly. The latest remaining bugs are the most difficult to fix. Sad

While of course many of us are eager to see the new WLP machines, it is good to know that the small delays in receiving parts are being utilized to add great new features like these. The enhancements you describe will make using the WLP f/w much easier, particularly when the machine is configured for a different model. These are clever and very useful features Bernhard, thanks very much for constantly improving the new WLP.

I wish you can have the WLP very soon in your hands. My own prototype is sometimes even fascinating to me, when I think about it. Must repeat some highlights here: Just pressing the lower left key and it's there. An LED calculator you never need to switch off, which keeps the complete last state, which can be switched to any Woodstock model and back. And showing the program steps as text in a magic red LED display. Shows the time, wakes you up. Has 5000 HP-25 program steps, 10000 HP-29 program steps, which can be used as a single program, Upload/Download with PC application included.

Thanks for waiting and for the +1!

Bernhard
