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

I wrote a very full-featured (for the time) text editor for my HP-71 and did an awful lot of typing of work memos and other things on it in the late 1980's, then decided I better slow down when they discontinued the 71, in case I'd wear out the keyboard and not be able to get a replacement. One of the countless things I wrote on it was a letter of resignation too.

I use the 41cx's text editor frequently, but it's so slow I can't imagine using it for something like a letter of resignation unless it was very short and to the point. At that point, you might as well write it on a Post-It note and stick it on the boss's door! Big Grin
