RE: I have finally joined the 42S club
As a guy who has had to punch the keyboard several thousand times because I fumbled a battery install and grounded across the terminals with the base of a button...I whole heartedly agree.

The slightest slip of my fat fingers leads to a reset and needing to redo all my programs. Maddening. But strangely worth it. Labors out of passion surpass all other labors in quantity and quality.

A profound example of contradiction from HP. The ultimate RPN device, pure and powerful, successor to the 41 base and attendant program compatibility, yet for some twist of incomprehensibility lacks provisions for program transfer via some serial input.

Doesn’t matter, the love affair is too strong. The 42S is Helen of Troy

HP 11C, 12C, 15C, DM15L, 42S, 48S, 50G, TI-89, Casio FX7000GA and a ton of slide rules. WTB: DM42
