Hmm...could that be a VT alum? Its funny how everyone who attends 'tech refers to it as 'tech', hoping people might assume it is one of the few Brand-Name techs', regardless of which one it is...could be Caltech, MITech, ...a bit ego-centric :)
Or Georgia Tech, or maybe some other "Tech" that is not commonly known. It's true that Caltech (California Institute of Technology) and MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) are more prestigious than all the the others.
I learned to program my calculator by hacking around in the dark. This made me a better programmer, as I was forced to get creative first, only to learn of commonplace techniques after the fact.
I'm not sure that I'd have patience for that approach. I prefer to learn things the "right way" first, then to explore. This is even more important when doing car repairs -- read the manual first!
Have fun waiting for answers... ECL

Be sure that you're responding to the correct message... :-)
Seriously, that program can be quite tedious to input if one does things the hard way, as illustrated by my anecdote.
(For example: [XEQ][ALPHA][JKLM][M][RSTUV][V][ABCDE][A][RSTUV][R][ALPHA][ALPHA][NOPQ][P][RSTUV][V][ALPHA])
So, I gave some pointers -- the key one being the first one. That's about all the assistance that is warranted, though.
