I won't let it go (though the battery compartment is broke, a common
flaw on the 28). The 28 can do 'normal math' but RPN is so much easier
That said, I always have my phone and my tablets around so I just use
them with droid48 (x48). On my Linux box I have a command line version
of a rpl calculator (based on the hp28). I downloaded it from
comp.sources.misc and I've had it ever since (C portable code good!).
