 Non HP RPNMessage #1 Posted by db (martinez, ca.) on 10 June 2008, 10:06 p.m. Thanks to Joerg Woerner, I got a new toy. It's kind of like a large heavy crylic 220 volt 11c, with an attitude. i put a picture at http://www.msdsite.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=1337&nocache=1 It's going to be some time till this beauty goes off the desk and into the glass case.

 Re: Non HP RPNMessage #4 Posted by Rodger Rosenbaum on 11 June 2008, 2:07 a.m.,in response to message #1 by db (martinez, ca.) On that website you say "Calculator Forensics result : 9 flat". Could you try the forensics test with a starting value of 9.1, instead of 9? Or, 9.12345678? Maybe this is one of those calculators that rounds to a nearby integer to make the user think it's very accurate.

 your answers & more rodgerMessage #5 Posted by db (martinez, ca.) on 11 June 2008, 11:00 p.m.,in response to message #4 by Rodger Rosenbaum the answer 9 times 10000000 is 90000000 the result using 9.1 is 9.1 and times 10000000 is 91000000 the result using 9.1234567 is 9.1234566 and times 10000000 is 91234566 thanks for asking.
