rare news mail from ESB
« on: December 23, 2010, 04:49:37 AM »
The mails from ESB are so extremely rare, that I thought I would post this one, simply for your information only! The company is very busy, but they don't spam, to say the least.

If you not yet are familiar with ESB software, they produce Scientific Calculators and Unit Converters that you only need to register once, all upgrades are free for the life of the product. Note: The $39 (edit: see next post!) asking price for their Suite will increase as more calculators are added, the first one already in January, but this will not affect registered users. I find their Suite to be a real bargain. http://www.esbconsul...om/esbcalc/suite.htm

They also offer Freeware: ESB Calc - Free Scientific Calculator with Paper trail, and ESB UnitConv - Free Unit Conversion Software. Latest Release: v7.2.0 released 14 May 2010.

To:    ESB Unit Conversion mailing list
Hi,

For those that celebrate Christmas (as we do), ESB Consultancy wishes you a truly blessed Christmas - and we wish all our customers a truly prosperous 2011.

Well we have managed to get the new releases of our Scientific Calculator ESBCalc Pro (v8.1), our Unit Conversion Software ESBUnitConv Pro (v8.1) and our Programmer´s Calculator (v2.1) out in the last few weeks - as well as our new Financial Calculator, ESBFinCalc Pro (v1.1).  Suite Owners have also had access to our upcoming Date Calculator, ESBDateCalc Pro.

More info at: http://www.esbconsult.com/esbcalc/

In January, we hope to get our Date Calculator finished and released - the feedback has been very encouraging for this product.


We have had many requests for a RPN Scientific Calculator - so we will seriously investigate that once the Date Calculator has been released - and we would still like to get the Complex Number Calculator out.

We have lots more work to do on the Financial Calculator - especially in the securities and bonds side of things.

We always have more conversions to add to the Unit Conversion - and we appreciate your feedback to help prioritise these - and we will be looking at a way to allow mixed units - eg 12 feet 3 inches - to be used - though this may be initially as a tool. Plus we have a lot of items on the wish list (many thanks for all who have contributed) to give us much to think about.

We need to work out how best to allow "floats" in the Programmer´s Calculator as well as some tools that customers have suggested.

And I always seem to think that our flagship product, ESBCalc Pro, is pretty much finished and then we get some excellent suggestions for improvements - so keep them coming - whilst we can´t promise we can do all you would like, your input does help us decide where best to focus our efforts!

Current plans are for minor updates to most existing products in January - as well as new releases of our Freeware ESBCalc and ESBUnitConv.

When you say purchase as an upgrade, do you mean I must already own it? Or, can I make an initial purchase with this price?

Edit:
I purchased and got the full suite with no prior ownership. Great price for a great product.

Thanks for tellng, moonwatcher, and for confirming, edbro! I too made the purchase even though I have never used anything but their free Unit Converter; $15 for a lifetime license for all their products is simply too good an offer not to take!  :up:

There are some good freeware units conversions and calculators out there, but that does seem too good to miss.  Thanks, Curt!   :Thmbsup:  You must be the most active discount hawk on DC  :)  And thanks, moonwatcher!   :Thmbsup:
