Heh. I've been toying with the idea of buying one of the TI programmable
graphics calculators (probably a TI-84). Anyone got one? Can they be made to
do RPN, hex->bin conversion, bitwise operations, etc.?
Failing that, anyone care to suggest a nice, (fairly) low-cost programmers'
calculator? I know at least one person is going to say "HP 16C", but I
haven't seen any around my neck of the woods for a while, and the ones I've
seen on Ebay seem to go for insane amounts.
