I use my calculator mainly for programming, since using the calculator just for math is not worth it.

You can't have an "All of the above" choice in this survey, because people obviously like "Math and programming capabilities" better than "Math capabilities" or "programming capabilities." Maybe a "None of the above choice" would have been better to cover those rare few who look for Ethernet ports... ;) BTW, I voted Mathematical capabilities, simply because I don't agree with the None of the Above, and I can do programming elsewhere...

That's why there's an "OTHER" choice...

I was actually referring to a "None of the Above" choice replacing both "All of the Above" and "Other"..."None of the Above" is just a much better one... :)

"None of above" should go below "All of the above", else the "All of the above" includes "None of above", and that's just kind of confusing. :)

Not just confusing, but paradoxical as well!

I voted mathematical cababilites even though programing and cpu speed rank high too, because I couldn't care about looks.

There should've been an "Nearly all of the above except color and physical design" choice.

I bet a lot of people would've voted for it.

Well, the case doesn't matter to me, but if it just so happens that I'm comparing two calcs that are almost similar, it comes down to that. I should paint flames on my 83. That would look kinda' cool.

Well, it does matter to *some* degree...I wouldn't want to have a calc that was painted in red/yellow/blue or something stupid like that...

What is "All of the Above(Above-1)(...)(1)"???

Well, all kinda seems like infinite, and if you put spaces in on your calculator it takes them as if they were *...so if you multiply it by the arbitrary variables of, the, and above, it is still infinite. If you try doing infinite!...well, i haven't tried it, but i'm betting it's still infinity, so the correct answer is infinity.
How's that for a cracked out explanation?

All of the Above!
The '!' is the factorial

So... the factorial of 'above' (Which is obviously any
number that is above zero) times 'the' times times
('of' naturally means multiply in math terms and i
include the spaces as multiplication) times 'all' (I interpret
'all' as the numbers from negative infinity to infinity)

i = [infinity] (couldn't find the symbol)
a = [a number from (-i) to i]
c > 0

a[(c!)^3] = ??

Along the lines that All is all numbers (say, all surreals or all surcomplexes), All*of*the*Above! (assuming of & the are nonzero & Above is not a negative integer) is equal to 0/0.

Which is undefined (or infinity according to some people)...

No, you're thinking of c/0, where c != 0. 0/0 is undefined, anything else over zero is positive or negative infinity.

Hmm...
0/0=x -> 0x=0 -> 0=0 => 0/0={all numbers}
Which is either a set (reals, say) or proper class (surreals or similar) depending on the universe of discourse.

and that above*2 is a real integer greater than or equal to -1

Above*2 need not be an integer; Above can be any complex number (except a negative integer), since the factorial can be extended to that domain via the gamma function.

(Programming^2) (Programming-1) (Programming-1) (Programming+2!)/(abs(Programming^2!))

(Programming^2) (Programming-1) (Programming-1) (Programming+2!) / (abs(Programming^2!))
= (Programming^2) (Programming-1) (Programming-1) (Programming+2) / (Programming^2)
= (Programming-1) (Programming-1) (Programming+2)
= (Programming^2 - 2*Programming + 1)(Programming + 2)
= Programming^3 - 3*Programming + 2
I think you made a mistake in there somewhere...Maybe a missed parenthesis?
