|Calculator run to Thunderbird Fry's (Phoenix)|
Message #1 Posted by Dave Shaffer on 14 June 2002, 11:28 a.m.
Under current plans, in a bit more than a week (June 24), I will be passing directly by the Fry's electronics store at the intersection of I-17 and Thunderbird Road in Phoenix (Arizona) as I travel from Flagstaff to the PHX airport.
According to several posts, HP calculators have recently been spotted in this location.
I bought a 32SII there this past March. At that time, they had several other '32s as well as some '48s or '49s. (I didn't pay much attention to the exact models since I was not looking for one.) There may have been some '12s and '17s as well, although these seem to be much easier to find elsewhere.
If anybody is interested (and there seems to be some interest), I will be glad to stop in and gather up whatever is left that anybody wants. I'll do this at my cost (including postage and packing supplies - probably a
bubble wrap envelope). I DO NOT know in advance what these units will cost - you can "place an order" with a do-not-exceed price if that will make you comfortable. Please, also be as specific as possible as to which model(s) you want, such as the various '48 versions.
This will be first-come, first-served, if the number of requests exceeds the number of available calculators! It seems fair to limit this to one calculator (of each model) per person (unless there are very few responses; if you want more than one, please say so to establish priority in case there are more than enough).
Please regard your request(s) as a contract. I don't want to be stuck with several hundred dollars of surplus calculating power!
I think I will limit this to US residents (or at least those who can provide a US address - I don't care who your "agent" might be!), although I would make an exception for Brazil: I would like a few of an everyday, cheap item which is readily available in any Brazilian drugstore/supermarket but is not available here in the US (!). It will be early July (a week or so after my visit to Fry's) before I return to Phoenix and can send calculators onward.
For questions or to place a request send me an e-mail (email@example.com). (It seems reasonable not to clog up the Forum with such requests.)
