I spotted what looked like an odd rubber-cased HP41 on a stall at a car
boot sale. The guy also runs a small army surplus shop so although I
didn't get it there I might ask him about it if I go in during the week.
It had four openings at the back about the size of a matchbox end-on,
with brown flexiprint circuit stuff folded over plastic tabs in the
middle of each one.
I'm a bit annoyed I didn't get it there and then, but I was carrying a
huge (and heavy) bag of books.
