HHC2021 Bob's Calculator Challenge
I watched the video with Bob's concocted challenge. I loved it and have to admit that my score was rather low ...
I even failed to find the answer to the question #5 " For the HP41, which commands are HPIL specific, yet are NOT in the HPIL module?". Too bad for a socalled HPIL expert :( A few comments: Question #12: "Which Pioneer machines were only sold in a single model configuration?" One of Bob's answers was the HP22S, but it's wrong it existed as the 32S (see question 8) with original flat LCD + small LCD digits + boxed alpha letters and improved recessed LCD + larger digits + unboxedlowered letters. See here. Question #13: "Which HP calculator returns 0.00 for certain operations?" The HP71B came to my mind immediately since it handles signed zero, but I guess it is out of scope according to the way the question is set (0.00) My answer would be the HP45 (maybe others too): try 1000 CHS 1/x and you get 0.00. Doesn't it fit the question? :) Thanks again Bob for the fun ! JF
