    Hi AW,

    That's a nice 26 year old calculator. These things were pretty exclusive around that time if I'm well. My dad had a Hewlett Packard Pocket scientific calculator. It used the 9 volt block battery and red LED's. I remember that it consumed one battery if you used it in one evening (no problem, someone who could afford that calculator that time, wouldn't have a problem with buying freight loads of 9V batteries either). My dad let me use it for my book keeping lessons in middle school. I think I was the first student of that school using a calculator. I few years later my dad brought me a real pocket calculator from Tokyo, Japan. I think it was around 1981 or so. Although it had only a few primary functions, it was as big as a credit card and only a little thicker, which was hardly believable around that time.

    Now you can buy pocket wrist computers. It's amazing the speed of technology. You have bought a nice piece of history there. It makes loose a lot of memories looking at it to me. Thanks for posting!

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    I see, Sjors, you mention your dad. Now, that's nice, I mean children mentioning their dad...guess why I write this...bugger ( Sjors).

    I remember buying (for a cargo ship Captain, who has to do a lot of calculations) a red-digit LED "Triumph" calculator for ...about US$ 300... around 1972/3 or so...the alternative in those days would have been one of those huge office things with about 100 buttons and a turning handle on the side, or the electro-mechanical version. When you see films of those days...gosh, that's a long time ago (no, just yesterday: look at the miniskirts and leatherette boots, and the flower-power shirts with tight jeans...no...stop it! ZZ

    Hi Pablo,

    My dad is a hero to me! I actually just visitid my parents today. I had bought a DVD box of an old series for them, which were their favorites in the 70's.

    I do not always listen to my mother though. She's telling me I have enough watches already for many years For the rest you can better take her advise. If she says you should bring a coat with you on a bright, hot shinny day and you don't take her advice, the only thunderstorm in our country will suddenly burst out over your head! :-D

    BTW Pablo, if there is a Dutch Masters of G meeting, would you like to come too? From Brussels I do not live that far from Antwerp (45 minutes).

    Cheers,

    Sjors
