|HP users'library management|
Message #1 Posted by Jos on 10 Apr 2000, 3:44 a.m.
Some info I found in an E-bay add (Item #302723338) mentions the take over of the users' lib by another company. Maybe I missed it but I thought we were looking for the remains of the lib ? If recovered we might persuade Dave to take action and also come up with a distribution scheme. Or am I chasing old news which was already known for years....
Some info given in the add:
"Solve and Integrate PO Box 1928 Corvallis, OR 97339 503-754-1207 "The Users' Library was established in 1974 by Hewlett-Packard company to provide users of its calculators with easily available and useful programs. It has since grown to be a collection of over 4000 user-contributed programs for the HP-41C, HP-41CV, HP-41CX, HP-71B, HP-75C, HP-75D - and over 400 programs for the Series 80 computers. In addition, we have acquired the HP67/97 Library, which contains over 4000 programs and programs and manual sets for the 9807 Integral Personal Computer (IPC)." "In February of 1988, Solve and Integrate took over management of the Users' Library. Our president, John Loux, worked at Hewlett-Packard for over 5 years, spending 3 years in the Users' Library. Though we are not affiliated with Hewlet-Packard, we hope to provide the same fine service as well as provide new products and services in the future."
