You do know what the old Roman was known for, don’t ya?
You should have received my email by now, but I haven’t heard from you. BTW, I’m also sending you my old Casio fx-7000G calculator and a manual for it.
The Casio came out in 1985, and it was the first programmable scientific graphing calculator. It was a little short on memory but was really simple to use and had a huge, sharp LCD display (even bigger than the HPs that followed it). The instruction manual is really easy to read and the machine is very well thought-out. Its a real babe magnet.
After 35 years, the Casio still works perfectly, and its got fresh batteries in it. I even have one of my programs installed on it. Unfortunately, the LCD display is getting really difficult to read; fogged over, or burning out. Its still usable but it is barely legible. If you can figure out how to solve that, it would make a neat little hardware project for you.
Send me your address and I’ll ship all this stuff out to you. If you didn’t get my email let me know and I’ll try again.
