Hello, you all.
Thanks for the comments. Sometimes, we need to think a bit more and practice a bit less.
To my friend Andrés: I would never take it as criticism. The Tupiniquim term sounds too strong, and is somewhat easy to remember. In fact, it reffers to any technique that uses "natural" resource (in this case, hot sensing). I know that, in some cases, even portable, low voltage calculator circuitry can generate enough heat to burn fingers. For this, I'm sorry. (mine have been burnt once or twice...)
Now, a single request. I believe Dave Hicks can help, if so. There are lots of valuable info in here (this forum) about many calculators' HW that could lead to very good, compiled documents. Some calculators, say, HP67/97, 41 series, Voyagers and others, allow user intervention and small repairs. Now, the request: Dave, is it easy to have the Forum Archieves as complete files, instead of links? Say, is it possible having the Forum Archieves downloadable? This way, compiling this or that subject would be easiear. (Is it correct?)
