WHERE IS THE YOUR GENERATOR AND CHIPPING HAMMER??????

Reply by Kevin Gaunt, L.S.I.T. on February 24, 2012 at 2:32am
Usually I enjoy gearing up to battle the winter elements, but after a full day spent "digging" with a shovel, hammer, pick-axe, digging bar, leatherman etc...for 10 to 20 minutes per monument, each of which was only 2 to 5 tenths of a foot below the frozen grade...

Aw heck, who am I kidding!? I loved it! :)

Haven't done much of this yet this winter!

Kevin, I plan for Wisconsin weather and snow-cover giving at least ½ hour per monument to be placed or located.  The ones deeper in the woods get between 1 to 2 hours per corner.  It takes so much longer to do things with more than a 12 inches of snow on the ground.  Forget about driving where you could normally navigate with a 4 wheel drive truck; forget about a day without taking your gloves on and off nearly 50 times for some reason; forget about walking quickly, especially in snowshoes; and finally, forget about it all, because at least you aren't unemployed during the winter!  These are not happy financial times for anyone.  I would camp overnight in the snow-covered hills if it meant that I had a job in the morning. :)

I just noticed that Bosshard's phone number accidentally made it's way into the photograph!  LOL

HP PRIME- 50G GROUP

Hi Everyone, And Hi to all you HP users and those who would like to be. New and old a like, some of you have used the 50g for a good many years,and it is widely used in the survey world today, and uses RPL language. The HP Prime is just starting out and it's new HPPP or HPPPL language,and is the new kid on the block. You will not find very much software for it yet in surveying, so can it help you survey??? Sure,cannot live in the past must go on to the future. So met the HP Prime the Time Machine. And we will also  embrace the 50 G and at times compare them The Hp Prime is one of a kind and may be the most advance calculator in the world.And help add to the knowledge of this group.There is a lot of things you may or may not know about this calculator or the 50 G.See More

First Steps,Can i help you survey?,I can, I am HP Prime

 Hi Everyone,Some of you know what the hp Prime is , some of you do not. For those let me introduce you to this calculator. First it is not just a calculator, It is a touch screen graphing with apps with CAS computeralgebra system with a numeric home screen that will switch between the two.It is also wireless and hastextbook, algebraic and 128-level RPN (aka Advanced RPN) entry logic. It also has a EXAM mode for test. Programming is not compatible with user RPL or system RPL language, Instead it uses HPPP or HPPPL or what was called hp Basic, it also supports creating apps. This is based on a language introduced on the HP 38G and built in on subsequent models. It will not also  support RPN language. But wait may be i spoke to soon ,is this possible just have to wait and see. How great this would be for those who have not used this language but  have wrote RPN for years.  This means many of you old timers could use this calculator. well this would take magic.Need to learn this new language???, But why i have a computer . Well i regret the day i would survey without a calculator and this new prime one day will have new surveying apps ,cause look at what it will do. You can switch between  CAS and home just with just a smile no other can do this, It has 3 ways for entry , no other can do this,it has touch screen and key entry, nothing special, but what about all those apps, and the graphics are amazing . Once you have learned this HPPL language this calculator is unstoppable .but do not make your mind up yet just take it all in and here is some more info. And a whole lot more to come.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HP_Primehttp://www.hpmuseum.org/forum/thread-216.htmlSee More
