When I first started using the WP-34S, I too felt nervous flashing it. But I have re-flashed my calculator dozens of times and it always works. Since you can still get HP-30B calculators from ebay for about $17.00, it might help relieve your nervousness to buy a couple spare units. I currently have three WP-34S calculators laying around so there is always one handy where ever I happen to be working. One in my computer room, one in my office, and one on my nightstand for those quick calculations that bug me before I go to sleep.

hi hi, yup... already thinking in that direction; glad to see that someone else keeps their calculator(s) on the nightstand--- mine is there, along with my iPod (Mozart), my 2M transceiver (W0MHH), spare glasses, and a copy of the Bible (and a DIY LED reading light with a modified clip that fits my calculator; I'll post a photo later).

Just for fun I may try repurposing one of the 20b units for my collection. But I'd like to have one 34s with the last update, and one with the stable back-release.

Thanks Barry, nice to meet you.


Kind regards,
