23/11/2013 Added a link to www.madas.ch and updated the list with machines sold and bought.
03/11/2013 Added a story about the restoration of a Marchant Twinplex double machine. October has been the most succesful month of the year so far, with over 500 unique visitors to the website. The Kuli sale, which was posted on CALCList, may have something to do with that. It did not sell though. If you want to make an offer, feel free - it will go on ebay shortly.
26/10/2013 Added a page for the Original Odhner Arithmos typ 5. Some machines now on ebay - look for seller cris-stenella .
23/10/2013 Added another early Brunsviga (N° 302) to the list, unfortunately without pictures. The Kuli is now for sale - make me an offer!
14/09/2013 Added the Adix and Kuli page.
11/09/2013 Added a page about casting keys for a new acquisition, a MADAS VIIeT.
17/07/2013 Another early Brunsviga was found - see the list at the early Brunsviga page.
29/06/2013 Added a page for the Jion B's.
27/06/2013 Added the Triumphator P Duplex page.
26/05/2013 Added entries for the Multi-Divo and the Brunsviga M24. Made very small changes to the list of short-crank Brunsvigas, with regard to the presence of the "A" behind serial N°s 202, 214 and 224.
05/04/2013 Added a story about the Preciosa calculator.
26/03/2013 It has been a while, but a lot of picture pages have been put up and machines added - check the list for Brunsviga A, B, D13Z/18, Triplexes, Midgets, MII, Nova III, and also some Odhners (A and AVKD), Mira 3, and Marchant Standard.
19/01/2013 Added Brunsviga N° 225 to the early Brunsviga page.
30/12/2012 As a final addition for 2012, I have added pictures of the Lipsia machines, Vaucanson A.V.A.20, the Triumphator H2, the Britannics, and the Brunsviga 10 and MH. I also fixed some of the Brunsviga expo room pictures, which turned up missing somehow. Added a link to the Computarium. December 2012 has been my top month in terms of visitors and pageviews since I started the site. Happy 2013 everyone!
30/10/2012 Added Brunsviga N° 291 to the early Brunsviga page.
19/10/2012 Still dusting off machines, but added a Brunsviga Midget and Odhner LUSID to the list, and added a story about Turing's double Britannic.
21/07/2012 I'm dusting off machines, and taking pictures at the same time. Added pictures of Antares, Archimedes D, Brunsviga B, Brunsviga ZK, Brunsviga MD, Brunsviga MB, Cosmos, Dactyle A and Dactyle B.
28/06/2012 Finally, it is time to start adding new things to the website - I haven't moved and cleaned the rest of the collection yet, but I have access to some of the new arrivals, so I have added the Odhner LUSID page, and an Odhner 6 to the list.
24/06/2012 A hard weekend's work put all the picture links straight again. Please let me know if you find any that might have escaped and are still broken.
22/06/2012 It finally had to happen - on checking the site today, all the pictures were gone. I do not host the pictures on my own server due to bandwidth issues, but this means that I now have to change all the links, on every single page of the website, in addition to uploading all the pictures to another server, and figuring out what went where exactly. So please bear with me as the site slowly recovers ...
14/03/2012 On pi-day (3/14), time to add some of the recent acquisitions to the list, while the infernal rebuild of the house goes on. Perhaps two more months. There are an Odhner 16, new Thales GEO, Brunsviga Nova I, an Archimedes D and another Alpina. Pictures after the furniture is back and all the dust is gone ...
29/02/2012 Two more early Brunsvigas surfaced, and were added to the early Brunsviga page, together with some more information.
17/12/2011 Added more information and pictures to the early Brunsviga page.
12/11/2011 Added some information (and pictures) to the early Brunsviga page.
4/11/2011 The infernal house rebuild drags on - I have added a link to curta.li, and added a Marchant XL and an Odhner A to the list. No more pictures, unfortunately - everything is covered in dust.
31/08/2011 It seems there is not much happening anymore here, and in fact, that is indeed the case - I am very much short on time, with the house rebuild which is moving along at a glacial but steady pace, and the picture server going belly-up, so I will have to find a new spot to host the pictures within a relatively short time. If there are any more changes, it will be that first.
20/06/2011 Added Kees Nagtegaal's site to the links section
15/06/2011 Linked through to the BRUNSVIGA Expo of the BLM, which was digitised in a separate section of the site.
10/06/2011 Added a page for the Kuhrt machine to the list, and added a few links, to Wilfried Denz' and Georgi Dalakov's sites. Stay tuned for the "surprise project", which is currently in the proofreading stage.
31/05/2011 Added a link to Reinhold Rehbein's website. Added Dactyle A, Facit T to the list, scratched one Hannovera AK that has been sold. In case you are wondering why nothing seems to be happening, I am working on a big "surprise project", which will nearly double the current size of the website ... check back in a week or two!
11/05/2011 Added a picture to the early Brunsviga page, and updated the links page with Mark Glusker's site.

26/03/2011 Added link to Eduardo Guillem's site. Updated all 30 pages with the "What's new" link to this page. Removed erratic counter from front page, and inserted a flag counter. That ought to be fun!
23/03/2011 Added pictures of the Calcorex machines, Thales A (also a story), Archimedes C, Austria IV and Alpina to the list. Added this "What's new" page to the main page menu, as it is a very handy feature for returning visitors.
