Klaas Kuperus *IS* the main stockist for Europe. He's also in the Netherlands, not the Czech Republic.

There are only 10 types of people in this world. Those who understand binary and those who don't.

Understood (finally). Also I was unfamiliar with the word "stockist" and had misread it as "stocklist"adding to my misunderstanding.

If, as I suspect, the HP 35s has truly been discontinued without a replacement, it will mark a sad turn of events on a remarkable legacy. Despite its shortcomings, the HP 35s was the last in a line of HP RPN keystroke scientific programmable calculators that can trace its lineage to the HP-65. We still have the financial HP-12C with RPN but it's programming model is very limited and it has almost no built-in scientific functions. The HP-17bII+ has an RPN stack and a nice solver but no keystroke programming or trig functions. The HP 10bII+ lacks RPN, keystroke programming and a solver.

We do have the HP Prime which is geared towards the education graphing calculator market. It is a very capable machine for this market. It also has an unlimited stack RPN mode similar to RPL models of the past but it is not fully integrated with all functions and CAS mode.

Finally we have SwissMicros as the last supplier of new enhanced versions of classic HP RPN calculator models.

Mine is full of large programs and there is no way of backing up but entering everything by hand. I have some on paper but I will not put myself thru that again. I will just use emu48 where everything is implemented.

Guess we will be left with pc and mobile emulators when these physical calcs bite the dust, which will happen eventually.
