>Each attendee received a special edition 16 month HP Calculator calendar in their conference proceedings folder.
Along with the printed proceedings and calendar, I want to add that each conference folder also included some very, very generous media items as follows:
1) Museum of HP Calculators 2-DVD set (Ver. 6.00) - Thanks Dave!!
2) HP Calculator Archive CD (i.e. entire copy of hpcalc.org) - Thanks Eric!!
3) 24 Years of Datafile 1982-2005 CD (HPCC UK) - Thanks Wlodek, Bruce, Hugh, et al !!)
Additionally, when HP handed out the free 35S's, they also gave each attendee an "HP Invent" logoed unisex watch (for some reason the HP watch I received was an old LED display jobbie with a bunch of tiny little buttons ;-). The 35S and watch were really nice gestures on HP's part. Thanks Sam, Cyrille, Wing, and Amy!!
And of course, a BIG THANK YOU to the HHC2007 committee members: Richard, Jake, Gene, Wlodek, and Joe!! Joe wasn't able to attend due to a serious medical condition he is fighting, so please keep him in your prayers - he certainly needs them right now. Thanks guys for all your hard work. We'll never know the extra effort you put into making this another highly-enjoyable conference.
I think one of my favorite aspects of these conferences are meeting and talking with friends that have traveled from other countries to attend. You know it cost them plenty of time and money to be there! We have been enrichened by your presence. Thanks for coming! It's really nice to be able to put a face with the names we see here often (that goes for everyone).
There are lots of other good things to mention, but I just wanted to say thank you to some pretty special people.
