Hey, I _like_ HP machines... Of course the HP machines I like are not the
modern ones, which are crap from what I can see. They're machines that
are certainly on-topic here, like the HP9830, HP Integral (a lunchbox
with HP-UX in ROM...), their calculators of 20-30 years ago (and yes, I
consider a calculator that you can program in machine code, that has a
disk drive, a full-width inkjet printer, an RS232 port and a HPIB port to
be a computer...)
