Thanks for your very kind words.

Quote:I'd argue installing the internal board involves about the same degree of difficulty as building a pogo pin connector, and doesn't even require taking the back cover off the HP (unless of course you want the crystal / RTC mod).

Removing the cover is nerve-wracking the first time but I did it with only my fingers following Eric Rechlin's video (I think it's Eric? Correct me if I'm wrong). It's pretty simple.

I probably will eventually install Harald's internal board when I get the itch anyway.

I can confirm it's Eric's video. As I mentioned in the manual, I'm impressed by his ability in creating and upgrading a WP 34S in such a quick and clean way.

Regarding Harald's board #2: remember it also serves as driver for the IR line to the printer. Once this board is installed, flashing updates will require only a standard cable. And you have to open the calc for installing the quartz anyway.
