About 10 hours for a real calculator, but about 17 hours in day-long Doors CS/CSE coding and debugging sessions.

I usually spend a long time on my calc playing and debugging games.

Seriously, though, Deep Thought is a genius! I spentan hour playing his Morpion game!

I spend the longest amount of time using the calculator for taking notes in DocDE. If its not coding, gaming, or surfing the web, that is.

I would say 10 hours. In 2002 it was on a regular basis (up to 70 hours a week), but I usually never used it more than that.

4 hours is my longest, thanks IkarugaX. After that, I just get bored and do something else.

Working on my CBL code, I often go over 2 hours without breaks. However, a TI-84 Plus programming spree I did several months ago lasted something around seven hours.

I can't maintain my thoughts while on my calc, so it's just about 2 to 4 hours.

I had a really long (19 hour) car ride. I had nothing else to do, so I used my 89 T and 83+.

I usually spend about 6 hours a day on-calc at school.

I have, however, spent 8 hours on it before.

If someone replied "whats a calculator?", why would they be here?

It's sort of a tradition for us to put silly responses as the last survey answer.

All this talk about the longest stretches of time that one used a calculator being for games... I wish I could say that was the case.

Unfortunately, as someone with a BS Mathematics, there were many times I spent 8+ hours poking away at a calculator without any games being involved.
