I want to make a public statement regarding my own website. If I should pass away, I give public permission to re-post the web pages for non-profit use and for free sharing. This is so you hear it from the horse's mouth.

Thank you Leonid, it is fantastic to have the Archive now on my computer - it is such a wonderful resource, especially for anyone wanting to understand the CORDIC algorithm.

However I note that the "forum" is not saved in your archive Leonid.

I have a lovely memory of finding a "new" error in the (original) HP35 and Jacques making a brief video showing the error using his "real" HP35 calculator. You can read the thread here on the "Wayback Machine".

The exp(ln(X)) bug, perhaps a new number?

So the "Wayback Machine" is still useful to reference Jacques Forum.

RIP Jacques - Merci beaucoup for ALL your work.

Maybe it's just my browser (Chrome)...or my OS (Windows 8.1)...or my ineptitude (plentiful) -- but I don't see a download link. I do see a note at the bottom of the screen indicating that the file size is 0 KB. Can anybody verify that the zip file is still available?

Click the grey button that says "Download this File", then complete the captcha and the download process will begin.

Thanks, Bob. (As suspected, it was ineptitude....)

No need to apologize. I had the strategic advantage of initialy being confused how to get the file a day earlier than you.

A bit odd they still use that style, since on most pages with buttons/links like that, clicking one will generally bring you to some unwelcome advertising, a download you did not want, or even infection, etc.

Please do share it; I'm sure Jacques would have wished this community be able to see his work.

Fortunately, his wife Germaine authorizes and encourages us to republish his work so that the memory of Jacques remains.

Here's the Jacques site, as it was in February 20, 2015.

RE: Laportes website not available
I also am very sorry to hear Jacques passed away. I always intended to contact him with a few comments about his website but onfortunately postponed it too long now.

I spent a lot of time browsing through his website and learnd a lot about HP calculators while doing so. It was a shock when his website was down and the reason became obvious. Thanks for putting it back online!

RIP Jacques

Edit: I just started looking for something and found that many of the pictures are not available. Is there any chance to get them back on line?
The filedroper link doesn't seem to work anymore (at least not for me).

RE: Laportes website not available
I am also very, very sad to find out that Jacques Laporte has passed away. Two years ago, I gave a talk at the HHC conference on restoring an HP-29C. A good portion of my work came from an email discussion that I had with Jacques and some of the schematics he had on the HP Woodstock series. I completed some schematics where Jacques had left off and offered them to him to post if he chose to. He will be truly missed as one of the individuals who helped our understanding of HP calculators and someone who was very selfless with the work he shared with everyone.
I lift a glass in your honor, Jacques.

Thanks for hosting Jacques' site. Doing some research for Wikipedia I tried to access the following page, but apparently it's gone:

http://home.citycable.ch/pierrefleur/Jac...ithm_2.htm

Do you know what happened to it? Does someone have it archived?

Greetings,

Matthias

I believe I have a copy of it.

(unfortunately several files pointed from this html page are missing)


I'm adding the ones I could find.

File hp35.asm.txt:
Rename it to "hp35.asm" (I had to do it as the forum seems to ignore the asm file extension),
It is referenced in the link at the row with the string "We enter in the ln(M) routine at label “ln25” of the Rom listing, address 02021. "


Attached File(s)
.htm  Logarithm_2.htm (Size: 16.31 KB / Downloads: 27)
.txt  hp35.asm.txt (Size: 13.61 KB / Downloads: 17)

RE: Laportes website not available
Hello:

Very sad news about Mr. Laporte, he did some awesome reverse engineering. Hats off.

There are many images missing for the hardware part in the sites that are online, could someone please repost the zip archive from Leonid? the file is no longer available at filedropper.

Best Regards

Steve Sousa
