ZX81 denigrated! (was Re: Approaches to projects)

I had a TI Programmer LED model. It died a horrible death. I don't know
what became of it. I have the model that replaced it, a TI Programmer II,
an LCD model. It has number keys with binary representations ghosted over
the keys, CE, XOR, AND, OR to the left of the numbers, oh heck:



SHF D E F / (<--divide symbol)

1'sC A B C X

OR 7 8 9 -

AND 4 5 6 +

XOR 1 2 3

CE 0 . +/- =

I used to use this thing all the time. I really should get some batteries
for it. I need a pair of Varta V13GA or similar.
