bookofjoe's Favorite Thing: Casio Solar Calculator


The trouble with cheap throwaway calculators is that usually you can't read the digits on the display because they're bizarrely shaped and/or spaced as well as too small.

This calculator, which arrived earlier today, puts paid to those problems.

Bonus: Solar-powered so it should last pretty much forever.

Nice keypad feel too.

Cheap at twice the $5.44 price.

Note to Casio propellerhead designers and engineers: Making the On button green rather than maroon would enhance useability.

Think like an anesthesiologist.

bubbub: I don't know! I'm not being cute, but I've never used the percent function on a calculator. I alway multiply by the number I want and then divide x 100 to get the percent.

Does the percent function work on your Casio?

My pleasure happening on a new comment by Flautist equals — but by no means exceeds — that of uncovering a nugget of delight in Gray Cat's litter box.

Flautist will understand what high praise this is while others, residing on the flats of Olympus, will mutter and grumble about what an ungrateful wretch I am.

No matter: I play for the ears of the Gods, hoi polloi can go take a hike.

"...bizarrely shaped and/or spaced as well as too small." Could describe a chest. I wouldn't know whose.
