5.0 out of 5 stars My HP 41-C Lives!, 3 Dec 2010
It's so good to find these MN9100s still available on the market. Hewlett Packard gave the world the greatest RPN scientific programmable calculator in the world, it's a shame they didn't think to power it with standard-size easy-to-obtain cells. Although I had not used my HP41C for some years, a little judicious scraping at the electrodes, plug in the MN9100s and it lived again! Thanks Duracell, Amazon and Media-R-Us.

At midnight they poured down from the heavens, every one a whirling star, ten thousand voices in a sky-borne choir. 'Glory,' they sang, and I felt the bedrock tremble. You popped your eyes open. You peered around, seeking the source of the music and waving your hands as if to catch the stars in them!"
It would take a heart of stone not to laugh. Ten thousand voices in a sky-borne choir, and you popped your eyes open. Such mastery of language is just breathtaking, isn't it?
I have browsed this book several times and never once managed to keep a straight face. Surely the… Read more
