Happy to see the HP calculator site.

Greetings, I love your website. My first and second calculators were the HP-45 and HP-65 respectively. Iím an RPN fan, and have always been a little disappointed with HP (and other manufactures for that matter) for not making an RPN wristwatch calculator. To my knowledge not a single RPN wristwatch has ever been made by any company! (Are you listening Sony?) It is defiantly something I would want. When the HP-01 first came out, it was disappointing to find that it did not use RPN and sad to see that HP never made another model.

Just a little something I remember: I remember Jimmy Carter (then President) received a HP wristwatch calculator as a Christmas present (or was it a birthday gift?) from his wife. President Carter had a degree in nuclear engineering. One last note: Did you realize that the current HP RPN calculator offering, the HP-32si, has been on the market for 10 years! When are we going to see something new and wonderful? Or, could the end of RPN be near?

Thanks for the great website,
