Congratulations to you for the new collection! Saw one here at a book store around two months ago, tempted to get it.

Thank you!

I'm not going to be a spoiler here, but I believe you have been closer than I finding the easter egg!

I had no idea about Tim's HP-10bii+ easter egg foundation, until someone gave me a clue about it. However, even then I could not find it.
As I see it, it is easier writing in hex (I do not like octal, though) than finding that easter egg!

It is a nice well built pocket sized powerful machine that deserves to be in any home.

Now I know...
I would say it is easier to win the lottery than finding it!

I lacked the required background culture here to be able to find it, but after some (well, a lot!) guidance from someone with more skills, I managed to get your message out of my nice machine Smile

Great easter egg, Thank you!

You're welcome. Both Cyrille and I are big fans and were very sorry about the passing. :-(

Were there any clues? I feel like an idiot Big Grin.

But I found the 18C easter egg - and was about throwing that thing away. Explosive egg.

The only clue I had is on this page.

Did not know the 18C had an Easter egg too. I may need to find it, drag it out and take a look.

Indeed, despite I never heard about him or his great work before (shame on me), I too start feeling the sense of a big loss.
I'm considering acquiring one part of his works now. Better late than never, I would say.
