RE: Collection of HHC programming contests and other useful documents
To be fair, between the two of us that only represents about 31 downloads of my site over 9 months, so I still maintain that there is very little interest.

As a result, I won't be updating the torrent again until 2019-01-01; I think once-a-year updates are sufficient.

update 201809 released with delay.

magnet:?xt=urn:btih:6c7a3ffe2ff90942f1d5348ff5fe94191d6cbaab&dn=hp_calc_torrent_u201809

All the info: first post -> http://www.hpmuseum.org/forum/thread-9090.html

As usual, suggestions about what to include and the rest are welcomed.

Code:

- 2018-10-20
  u201809
  -notes:
  . big slow down in releases and searching for contents. Life happens although the point is to
    keep in mind a project to give some time slots every now and then.
    In the meanwhile Eric Reichlin just showed the world how awesomeness seems limitless.
    Not only he cared for hpcalc.org, that is a huge goldmine of information about some HP
    calculators. He also made the torrents containing the info
    of other places where the hp calculator community discuss and add contributions
    plus he is providing archives of old websites and mirrors of existing large forum.
    As I said, it is difficult to find superlatives for Eric (and of course all the others
    that created the content that Eric is saving).
    
    I (pier4r) on my side do a little, although suggestions from others are also lacking.
    No worries though, quality builds slowly over time. I am pretty sure that slowly the community
    will collect what can be collected that is worth it.
    
    "We do what we must, because we can" - Glados running on a little calculator.
  . added documents about the hhc 2018 and some resources mentioned in forum discussions.

Quick update. Actually I collected some more material (although not as much as before, also because suggestions are lacking) but in those days my NAS (a qnap TS 431 P) lost an hard drive, so I have to first solve that then I may find the time to release the next update.

For this the p2p is gold. Even in the case I lose my content, I can hope to download it again. A shared backup.

RE: Collection of HHC programming contests and other useful documents
I rebuilt my file server sometime ago and realized recently that I was not running Transmission (my torrent client of choice) to support serving these files.

As there is only one peer, and I will soon be the second, we need more!!

Check out NQ41!

RE: Collection of HHC programming contests and other useful documents
I've been seeding most of the torrents for about a year, but my Internet connection is unfortunately only 5 Mbps so I can't help much.

AT&T has fiber on the poles right by my house that should get me 1 Gbps like you can get everywhere else in the city, but for whatever reason, they don't recognize any address on my specific block as valid for fiber. So my block and my block alone is stuck in the 20th century.

Municipal fiber is probably 2-4 years away for me in my town, some neighborhoods are being installed this year. For now I have 40 mbit down, 5 mbit up.

Fibre is just a pipe dream for most people in the UK. We have one of the worst broadband networks in the world and most people have to make do with ADSL with around 4 megabits/s downlink and maybe 1/10th that uplink. Some more rural areas don't even have that.

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

My Nas lost the disk with the torrents (raid 1! 1 disk died and for the other slot got the sata connector defective) . So I have mine (the hpcalc torrents) but I have to redownload the others (hp41, hpcalc.org and so on).

Also for such files, that actually should be always be around, rather than "download, remove from the torrent client", the speed doesn't matter much. Eventually it will be downloaded.

The situation is

RE: Collection of HHC programming contests and other useful documents
There are plenty of people that should be thanked for their work of assembling or digitalizing or keeping around stuff about hp calculators, calculators, technology and knowledge in general.

Only I wanted to leave a line to thank SlideRule, who for months is leaving here and there links to a lot of papers, articles and resources related to hp calculators and they* are not frustrated by the lack of response of many of their posts (thing that frustrates a lot of people nowadays). SlideRule I appreciate your efforts and I am impressed. Quality builds really over time, although silently.

* not knowing the gender

You're welcome!
I'm not quite half way through my existing archives: hardest part is finding current &/or updated links/urls/etc for many of the remaining publications.

BEST!

Small update

update 201810

magnet:?xt=urn:btih:ee8c8856fa2bd0df08a8d8844c97eb70b35f4d34&dn=hp_calc_torrent_u201910

All the info: first post -> http://www.hpmuseum.org/forum/thread-9090.html

As usual, suggestions about what to include and the rest are welcomed.

Code:

- 2019-10-05
  u201910
  Life happens even more. Too many interests, too little time and discipline,
  running behind several interests is not helpful to reach any high point.
  I should learn the lesson one day. Interests are a matter of priorities,
  and if one has little time (being occupied by work related things over 60h per week
  plus social interactions) some interests may unfortunately slip in the background.
  
  I am not following the hp forum as I wish I would. I have to read the last
  weeks/months. As usual, damn myself. I could do better, as in "stop, reflect
  on what you want to focus, apply the focus".
  
  Anyway, aside from the dirgression. This update brings a little due to (a)
  my lack of work and (b) chronic lack of suggestions. One could extract links
  and attachment from the hp forum and other places, but it takes time and focus
  that at the moment I don't have.
  
  Thus collected some hp 41 related documents, calc/math related documentes and
  hp 9100 related documents.
- 2019-02-07
  adding 9100 scans from http://www.hpmuseum.org/forum/thread-12377.html
  due to life happenings and slower updates, decided to collect updates for
  each 6 months. They can always revert to monthly ones.
  Therefore the next one will be 2019H1 (2019 half no 1) and
  there may be a second called 2019H2.


Question. Where the hhc2019 contest uploaded somewhere? With a brief search I didn't find them. Thanks for your help.
