RE: HP 35s missing keystrokes
Hi Marcus,

There's probably none if one approaches the 35s as you do. Still, when there were so many glitches to be discovered just by using it in the first few weeks, what do we have to expect in the long run? Can I trust it? Of course, no one knows, and that holds true for other calculators as well. Just recently we discovered new bugs in the 32SII and 15C firmware.

One problem certainly is that the 35s could be much better by addressing the obvious problems, and at least I have my quarrel with HP about why that never happened. But it's not that I'm not using it. Just the opposite, my 35s found its place at my office.

Anyway, your personal insights on the 35s are an interesting read. Always nice to meet someone liking this branch of calculators as much as I do.

BTW, the R<>P conversion programs Thomas mentioned in the other thread are a community effort, well tested and leave Z,T registers intact. I think they're hard-if not impossible-to improve any further :-).
