So guess what I do.

I´ll bring the tR to our local building trader to use his heavy duty scale.

Perhaps the NMS8220 ate to much of those tasty weisswurst, or are those not sold in Stuttgart ?

We don´t have much in common with our bavarian neightbours, except a also incomprehensible dialect.
We are known for our Spätzle, that´s a kind of noodle that isn´t a noodle in fact.
Btw, the HB75D is 200gr. heavier than the 75P.
That must be the prove that the points of our special characters weigth 200gr.
Our scale died according to the weight of my tR.
Could somebody help me with the exact weight of a NMS8280 and a HBF-700D without keyboards? A 700P would be fine, I will add the 200gr. for the Umlaute.

Well, I have a NMS8250 which is without VDP at the moment, it weighs 5.6 kg.
But I used the special scale for people who eat to many Spätzle.

Interlude:
Ask my daughter what she wants for christmas, she answered "That C64 with the handle. Don´t care if I can´t carry it, i love it."

What have I done wrong?

This is the 720kb quest.

You can see our christmas postcard.
Each quest rewards you with 720 unique points!

-How muche keys are on the machines?
-How much buttons?
-How much sliders?
-How much RAM is build in?
-How much ROM is build in?
-What´s the voltage of each machine? (each earns 720 eternal points!)
One more thing!
How many meters of power cable are involved? (Best is pushed to the pole position and gets 720 points added)

This will be the last quest for this year, thank you for joining.
That means, we will have a winner.
But there will be a gift of 1024 points for christmas for everyone who posts a comment in this round. After seighting my MSX cartridges, there will be a second price for sure!
Have fun!
See you on saturday!
(Damn, I don´t want to present my daughter a C64! Any suggestions?)

It will run without any error message, but will display nothing other than 'Ok'.

Better to replace REM by PRINT! Santa (and add the quotes of course!)
