living room with about 12 people, but the
very next meeting we had to move to my
school building because the number of
participants would have been too big for
In 2018, the meeting
infrastructure became too small again and
we had to find a new location. Hans-Peter
Wiederkehr has also been co-organiser of
the meeting since 2018 and deserves my
deepest thanks for the work he has done.

The Allschwil HP-Meeting is open to everyone: HP enthusiasts, collectors,
inventors, software developers, hardware cracks, nostalgics. We are especially proud that this year we were able to welcome participants
from 10 countries from 3 continents. Your journey was long, certainly not cheap,
and yet you took the strain upon yourselves: Many thanks to all speakers and
participants. Without you, the meeting would not be possible.
Below you will
find all the documents for the individual presentations: the videos and the
.pdfs. A big thank you goes to Eric Rechlin, who recorded all the speeches and
edited them at home. All data will also be available on the new HHC USB stick,
which you can order from Eric.
