Topic: upgrading an early Hottop to the programmable model (24 lines)
1) From: Irene and Lubos Palounek
If you are upgrading an early analog Hottop to the Programmable model 
using the KN-8828P Upgrade Procedure instructions (the version as of 
February 15, 2007) onhttp://www.hottopusa.com/, you may have problems 
doing "Step 7", "remove the base".
After completing what is suggested in the Instructions, you will notice 
that you can pivot the base, but you cannot remove the base.
In order to remove the base on the early machines, it is necessary to 
remove two additional screws, not mentioned in the upgrade
instructions. I will not go into the details here, but if you need help, 
send me a note to PAL (at) IEEE (dot) org  and I will be happy
to help you by sending an email (with some pictures) explaining what we 
found out while upgrading our early analog Hottop to the
Programmable version.
