    I think that the short answer is YES, quite a few people!

    HP calculators go very well on ebay and usually fetch a ridiculous price

    That you don't know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone" (BANG )

    I would definatlety collect HP computers and calculators, IF the price was right. As Nige The Hippy pointed out, they fetch alot of cash, and in my pint of view, they will only cost more in a few years.

    Hi
    I don't have any HP calculators but I do have a HP 21MX.
    I've played with it a little but other projects have kept me
    busy.
    I'd still like to have a HP35 someday. I had one of the
    HP33 ( I think that was right ) with LED display. It failed
    one day and I tossed it.

    I did have 2 "gummy wheels". Managed to fix one, down to one gummy wheel. You will have google the "HP 85 gummy wheel problem". It's great fun. Plus all the tape programs from back then all "delaminate", which means the mag. coating comes off the plastic part of the tape. I wasted a few bucks buying those tapes.

    What is so fantastic about the post working? Are you using some sorta program to post on here, other than the internet?

    PLEASE DO NOT LET THIS "SNOWBALL" INTO A BILLION OFF TOPIC POSTS!!!

    The above is totally neccesary, so I am not liable for OT posting.

    Ever since the *outage* I get constant error message about "connection reset" or "connection dropped". Sometimes have to hit "reload" literally 50 times to get one post up on the screen so I can read it. So, it's a BIG DEAL to me when a post works.

    My current combo of iMac G3 (350Mhz), running debian linux 4.0, using gnome default browser (mozilla in a thin disguise) cuts my 50 reloads down to a glorious 4 or 6 or 22. (sing along) "Heaven, I'm in Heaven"

    I don't believe it! Erik's ISP said "Must be Chuck's ISP". Well..... it was! Looks like they turned on some sort of proxy crud and didn't tell anybody. If I go thru the new proxy, forum works great again.

    Ya, I recently bought an HP-35 off of ebay. Prices are silly. I spent 45 bucks on a power plug, 15 dollars on a chinese bootleg battery and then 50 bucks on the calculator itself with a nice leather case. Its a very interesting calculator, its a totally different way to use a calculator.
