Have you used your calculator for something that was not really math related?

RE: Have you used your calculator for something that was not really math related?
I used my 48SX to compute the optimal speed from the final thermal (upwind) when taking the last leg home. This was as you may imagine in the early '90ies when flying the club gliders did not all have a flight computer.
This approach also made it possible to have several types of gliders preprogrammed into the HP. I must admit that the program, when using userrpl, was slow... But it worked. The 15C/LE would have been nice those days. Regards, Matti Sweden
