    Was: Silicon Sea: Leg 70 - now Calculators
    From: Sam Chan
    Date: 2001 Apr 23, 10:39 PM

    I have an HP48SX. I bought that about a year before they announced the
    HP48GX. I have attempted to develop my own programs for SR with the HP. Then
    I realized that I was spending more time learning about programming the HP
    then about navigation.
    Like I said before, I like HP calculators. So I would feel real bad if I
    trashed an HP. Some how, I don't get the same feeling if I trashed a Casio.
    Since the Casio fx-300 is not programmable, I develop cheat sheets for
    formulas I need. I have one for SR to altitude/intercept, and sailings. I
    put it on a 3x5 card and laminate it. If all else fails, I can fall back on
    the basics.
