Therefore everything on the first 8 Goodies Disks runs ok on the S series. I don't remember anybody making a list of which of those programs also run on the G series. However, many of the really nifty old S-series-only programs got rewritten ("ported") for the G series and appeared on GD9, 10, or 11, so be sure to look there first before trying to run an older program on the G series. And there are postings on the later Goodies Disks which describe how to rewrite S-only software to run on the G series, and even how to make software run correctly on both series.

Tangentially related: I still have a dusty old folder on my hard drive called GDNEW (16MB, 1360 files!) which contains goodies from the late 1990's that people either sent to me or which I gathered hither and yon, intending to put them on future Goodies Disks, but then the Goodies Disk Project was abandoned, leaving the GDNEW folder forgotten and forlorn. If you'd like to explore it (you're on your own! I remember nothing about its contents!) you can download it as a 9.5 MB zipfile from HERE. If anything offensive or top-secret is in there, please let me know!
Oh, really nice.. I'll need to look at that too, unfortunately in seems that majority is written in SysRPL for understandable reasons, but rendering them questionable to run straight on later firmwares. (If I'm understood correctly the ROM dependancy of sysRPL).

It seems it were you who wrote the article about the crummy feet of HPs, I have also now experienced this small, but annoying feature of too many products and now in my HP50g with one lost feet. I did solve the issue with "Pattex 100%" glue, which dries kind something similar to hard silicone. First I cleaned the holes a bit with Isopropanol (electric cleaning spray) to get the goo out. Then I took a few tootpicks and with those I tapped the glue/gel to feet dent to form a new "not as clean" feet to the calculator. Next morning it were dry and ready to use. It have now hold couple of weeks so far.
