HP Should Stop Making Calculators ( Revisited

i finally got out and got an iPod Touch, and tried out some of the HP
Emulators / Simulators...
And This is NOT what i am looking for...!!!

What i would like for both my iPod and The Big Box, Is an Appliance /
Application that features the full programming ease and versatility of
The HP48
AND
Makes full use of The much Better Screen Resolution & Full Color.

It's really kind of -Embarrassing- to look at these calculators
squeezed into the iPod.
It's just not right.

Try Spacetime.  It's a programmable CAS with a super-set of 48
features.

i41CX+ has an internal CAS based on Reduce.  It's quite nice and can
integrate with the memory space of the 41CX.  IANS, you create CAS
programs as text files using a Pascal like language.  Plotting is also
supported.

You'd probably prefer Spacetime.  Full color, very nice set of
features, programmable.

I agree it's a likely squeezed but I can live with it. On my iPad, it
simply rocks though. I use m48+.

New HP Business Inkjet 1100D/1100DTN
Has anyone see this new series of printers from HP? I was ready to buy a Business Inkjet 2230, but was told that the 1100D replaces it. The printer sounds pretty good on HP's website: (http://www.hppdi.com/default.aspx?action=unit&seriesid=344&unitnumber=C8124A) 23 ppm draft. Automatic 2-sided printing. It includes separate cartidges for each color, like the 2230 did, so you don't have to replace all colors when one goes empty. However, when looking at cartridges it looks like these are only about 2/3 the size of the cartidges used in the 2230 (at least for col...

Making TIME_ZONE_INFORMATION find if Daylight savings is active
Hello I am trying to use the Win32 function SystemTimeToTzSpecificLocalTime to get the time of a local city. And it works but, if the city is currently using daylight savings then my time comes out 1 hour behind. I have read in MSDN that i can use this function to take into account daylight savings IF I alter the TIME_ZONE_INFORMATION struct which is the 1st argument of the SystemTimeToTzSpecificLocalTime function. How can I alter a TIME_ZONE_INFORMATION struct to find if daylight savings will be active in a certain area? Dealing with all these windows structs & classes is...

HP 64000 using 6800 Pascal Cross Compiler
Hi! I'm looking for the source code for the library routines (e.g. PARAM_, LEAX_B_X, Zbshift, Zequ, Zleq, etc.) needed to execute Pascal programs compiled by the Pascal/64000 compiler for the 6800 microprocessor. I have the relocatable file for the LIB6800. If anyone knows where I can find the source code, or if anyone knows of a workaround, I would be grateful.

HP-UX VTOC ???
Hi, Does HP-UX have the concept of a VTOC ? OS'es like Solaris & AIX store the information about disk partitions in the VTOC(Volume table of contents) on a disk. The VTOC usually contain boot info, partition name, versioning info, number of partitions, sector size in bytes, free space, partition headers etc... for use by bootloader or Filesystems. I couldn't find any information about anything related on HP-UX. Any information or pointers will be appreciated. thanks m On 2005-12-01, Manoj R <manuu@rocketmail.com> wrote: > Hi, > Does HP-UX have the concept o...

Command "DATABASE" is making problems
Hallo specialists! I am running a 4ge-application since years. The database-tables are situated in some different databases (DATABASE arzt, DATABASE statistik, DATABASE datenalt ). In order to shift old datas to DATABASE datenalt for example I use the command "DATABASE " to change from the current database "arzt" to database "datenalt" and afterwards "DATABASE arzt" to come back to the first database.

HP-49G, HP-49G+, HP-42S
Hmm.... Back when I was an engineering undergrad (1989) I purchased an HP-42S calculator. That calculator quickly became indispensible to me. Without it all my engineering homework and exams would have been much harder. To this day I still use it as my primary calculator. With the leather carrying case I purchased for it back then the calculator has remained in pristine condition save for a little dust now and then. I decided about a year ago to purchase the HP-49G because I honestly thought that HP was getting out of the calculator business forever and it had been over ten years since ...

How do I make the BBDB more insidious?
I've just started playing with bbdb ("The Insidious Big Brother Database") with MH-E, and the first thing that I've noticed about it is that far from being insidious, it keeps wanting to chat with me.

(2) Every time I do an "x" (mh-execute-commands), the bbdb interrupts and says "Save the BBDB now?", to which I always respond "y". ...
