Yesterday an old HP calculator importer called me and said he had seen me on TV and knew that my collection burned down. He offered to give me his remaining stuff from the 70's and 80's. Needless to say I was thrilled like a kid in a candy store.
Today I drove to his place - he had boxes of old stuff - mostly lots of manuals and books, but also a few real gems in there:
2 or 3 HP-33C, 2 HP-34C, 5 HP-41 time modules, 2 card readers, a whole box full of printers, some 41 modules (memory, math) and more. All New Old Stock (!).
I also got an interesting rare item for the 48 series - a custom surveying card made in Norway called Geometrix. Also lots of interesting literature and other stuff I will wade through in days to come. I'll be seeing a few of you next weekend... you need a time module, perhaps?
In between this, I am also excited about the new NoV-64 that arrived last week. And next weekend I'll be in Switzerland - all this makes my calculator universe curve :-)
Tip: Get featured on TV.
