Thanks for your info on the conference, Richard. Sorry I missed the meeting – had some personal obligations that required last minute changes. 

 

I look forward to the conference report if it will be generally available.

Hello HHCers,

 

Non-US people surely think Americans are gun crazy with good reason.  Our gun “culture” is based on the history of our countries foundation.  I live in a state where open carry is the law.  Research has shown that guns in the hands of the populous is actually safer.  Freedom is not a fundamental desire for most people.  Equality seems more vital.  These differences form our two political parties.  The US is unique.  What other country is founded and run with a government that by its very foundation is based on placing limits on government.  This is way off topic and thanks for avoiding name calling and personal attacks.

 

Regarding the HHCs I can happily report that the HHC Guarding Angle was with us and we solved all of our challenges to have a really great educational and fun Conference.

 

Many people have told me that there is plenty of support for future Conferences, and the future of HHCs is indeed bright, no matter what HP does with its last calculator product.  This was a topic of major concern at HHC 2018.

 

A Conference report is being written and will be done in a couple of weeks.

 

Thanks to all,

 

X < > Y,

 

Richard

I thought having answered your mail already but can't find it. Thus once again:

 

Yes, it will.

 

As for guns, this topic is settled in all civilized countries meanwhile. So it doesn't make sense to discuss it furthermore -- just count the kids shot every year in your country and think about them and their parents and relatives. If the citizens of this country then still think their homeland becomes safer with millions of firearms carried in public, well, then they have to learn it the hard way inevitably. What a pity for the kids -- and how nice for the NRA and D.T.

Will the PDF be electronically searchable?

 

As for guns, there are certain people who should not be allowed to have them:  homosexuals, attractive young women working late night jobs in bad neighborhoods, members of labor unions, undesired races such as blacks, Mexicans, Irish, and Jews, cripples, and old people who are physically unfit but carry a lot of money.  Remember: when seconds count, the police are minutes away.

Hi,

 

hope you who are there are enjoying the conference. The rest of us is looking forward to the videos :)

 

Some days ago, I was asked:

 

Now that the 34S project has been deemed finished for several years
(as has the 31S). Is there a possibility of a PDF version of the
final manual being added to the sourceforge repository so people can
reference it easily?

 

I did call for a little poll to avoid stepping on people's toes by giving away for free which had to be bought before. Response was encouraging. So here's my offer:

 

A clean pdf copy (without watermarks etc.) of the WP34S manual will be put at a place publicly accessible for free downloads AS SOON AS the ridiculous ban against me on the forum of hpmuseum.org <http://hpmuseum.org>  is lifted by whomever is able to do this. 

 

I don't ask for excuses for banning me for something the respective 'moderator' did misread obviously -- meanwhile I know logic is scarce and justice is seldom met in the wild southwest as long as firearms are at hand. I'll try hard to handle those explosive people carefully in future.

 

At the bottom line, however, I promised my dear friend Demosthenes Athenaios (who spoke for me on the Agora while I can't) to try getting this ban lifted after more than two years; so he can enjoy his pension on his sunny Greek island without being bothered by strange American customs anymore.

 

What do you think? Deal? Thank you in advance for making this happen.

 

Walter
