So yesterday, in Algebra class, me and my friend were both finished with the assigned worksheet. I have been using a TI 84+ Silver Edition for the last year by this point. Instead of having a key that's functionally equivalent to "Backspace" on the computer, it has arrows where you can move the cursor to a character and press "Del", which deletes the character. My friend has an old TI calculator with one of those backspace keys.

ADD and curious person I am, I pick up his calculator and started fiddling with it. (Keep in mind that this was BEFORE I realized the stunning revelation described above.) I notice a key with a little arrow on it, and say "Hey, ***, what's this do?" I proceed to enter some random string of digits into the calculator and press the key. Then I say "Oh, I figured it out! It divides by 10 and rounds down!"

We were both laughing for a good five minutes. I told the math team instructor, and she was almost literally on the ground :)

I'm new here. I've been browsing tons of forums for an idea of what to do. I was laid off from my job about 3 month ago. I've been looking for a job since then, but did not even get a single interview. I worked as a web designer for a publishing company for the last 5 years. Looks like www.geekstogo.com is an active forum with active members and may be someone has some experience working as a freelance web designer. May be "http://www.geekstogo...orum/help.html" category is not the most appropriate for this question, but I want to try anyways to get some opinions before I go ahead with my life. I'm wondering if it is possible in the current economy to find work for a freelance web designer and make enough to pay for rent and groceries. I was able to find a small project on craigslist and I developed a website for a company. It was a small project and took me only a week to complete. I got paid $800 for 1 week of work which is not bad. Please people give me some ideas. I have 2 kids and my wife is out of work as well. Thank you in advance.

this is three month old topic on calculators in jokes and forum games, so this is not where you want to post your question. You might want to try opening a new topic in Web-Development
