HP Products Bulletin Aug 1976
Hi:

Just wanted to call attention to a publication which was new to me. It is an update to the 8/76 Calculator Products Division Accessory List.

Interesting is information on the 9800 series. What interested me was a listing of 9800 manuals, including insertable ROM block manuals. Hence, part numbers/names for the ROM blocks. Which I have wanted to determine on several occasions. Along with some cable, paper, magnetic/paper card part numbers and various peripheral manuals are listed.

It is located at:

http://ftp.computermuseum.informatik.uni...ug1976.pdf
(that is one line with no spaces, not sure how it looks to you)

simply put it in your browser's address bar. Use the ftp:// as it appears, do not substitude or add http:// and you will be taken to the PDF. It is in English.
** (EDIT) if you click the link above, it will fail as it adds http:// at the front. Simply remove the remove it and leave the ftp://
If your browser goes automatically to a search window and you loose the link, right-click on the above link and select copy-shortcut or copy-link-location and paste it into the browser bar. ** besure to remove the prepended http:

You can type:
http://ftp.computermuseum.informatik.uni-stuttgart.de
and will end up at the root directory of the structure that contains the PDF in the HP directory. There are quite a list of various vendor stuff listed.

Should you enter:
http://computermuseum.informatik.uni-stuttgart.de
you will end up at a web page (I assume German), with options for French and English. The page is a computing technology site of calculator and home/commercial computer information/exhibits.

Just an FYI, as I've found having HP part numbers handy and this list a some which were helpful to me anyways.

Just as an addendum, the forum post will always say http://ftp.computermuseum...., remove the http, replace the ftp. with ftp://, you should end up with ftp://computermuseum.... (fill in the rest of the URL from the message above).

Hello!

Thanks for posting. This is at "my" old university, not far from where I live. The museum was installed long after I left, therefore I didn't know about it until today... They have strange opening hours (only on Tuesdays from 16:15 to 18:30) but I will certainly pay them a visit.

Maybe if some other forum members who live in the area of Stuttgart (I know there are some) would get together we could arrange a special visit (weekend?) with some actual hands-on experience on some of these machines?

Regards
Max

How is the ftp link created, do you just modify what is pasted into the link editor before clicking OK? Seems like a useful thing to explain in detail for everyone to learn, as frequent downloads have this problem (e.g. every time there is a new Prime update, which are on HP's FTP site, most folks have to go through these link gymnastics to get the files).

Hi Bob,

I'm glad you asked. The general method for inserting a link is to use the link button on the toolbar, but if the link is to an http site then it can be entered directly. All URL's will be converted to an http address. That's where the issues arise with the ftp links.

The general method allows you to specify the link to the file plus what is displayed.
What is displayed can be:
* Some text, like the URL or something descriptive
* An image, full-sized or scaled

When folks are posting those gigapixel images I find it overwhelming and not a very good photo journal. I suggest that a scaled image be created in the second field. This creates a "zoom-able image". Photo journals can now have the scaled images arranged in the post in a much better format and when clicked will display the nice, hi-res image.

Thanks Dave. Since clicking reply does not reproduce the original code to examine, and as a result one cannot see what you actually inserted to create the nice link, can you reproduce the actual text of what you inserted to create it? Maybe even include this reply in the Articles sub-forum as that will be a more logical place for folks to find it. Thanks.

Clicking "Quote" will allow you to see the BB codes. Also, the Zoom-able Image Test describes the necessary steps. Lastly, here's the code:
Code:
[url=ftp://computermuseum.informatik.uni-stuttgart.de/hp/98xx/ProductsBulletin_Aug1976.pdf][img=364x184]http://i66.tinypic.com/2qkp8ib.jpg[/img][/url]

The steps would be:
2. Paste the URL of the file or image, click OK
3. Paste the URL of the image you wish to be displayed
4. If you use TinyPic to host the image it will create the necessary BB code with the [img][/img] delimiters. Otherwise, add them yourself.
5. If you wish to scale the displayed image, after "[img" add "=XxY" where X and Y are the dimensions of the displayed image
6. Click OK
