I saved money from a summer job to buy an HP-35 as soon as it came out, I couldn't stand log and trig tables and was about to start college as a math/physics major. I ended up in computer science grad school so my next HP calculators were an 11c and a 16c. Along the way I learned a good amount of electronics and did some consulting, developing small projects.

Now I do computer consulting to financial firms and really don't need anything more than a 12c but I have almost all the HP's that I missed out on over the years and a couple of hundred non-HP calculators as well. I taught myself how to repair many of them and like that aspect of collecting quite a bit.

I like looking at other calculator collector's websites and don't think that I would be able to add much to what's already out there. So I've been gathering manuals, scanning them and making them available for downloading -- here they are.
