Following on from the popularity of an Any Answers post last year, in which a member lamented the 'passing' of his beloved, long-lived calculator Ralph, we asked members for their favourite calculator memories.

The winner is michaelbeaver. You can read his tale here

To celebrate his contribution, Michael is the lucky recipient of a special commemmorative 50th annivsersary edition of The 12 digit Canon KS-1220TSG calculator. This model comes with a tilting screen and silky keybaord designed for fast and accurate input. To support professional use, in includes instant access functions including Cost-Sell-Margin, Tax, Decimal Switch and Rounding Up, Grand Total, and Memory. 

We enjoyed the thread so much, we picked out seven of our top answers - posted below.

Gender confusion

I believe Kirkers is a she, not a he.

Shocked that they would cheat at Monopoly................, and on the test of course.

Great machine
Citizen CT-700 bought in 1992 after passing my exams.  Large usable buttons, solar with 2 AA battery back up (1 new set of batteries in 22 years).  A mark Up button,  day of the week button (input a date and it tells you the day it fell on).  Days between dates and a scrollable editable list of numbers for double checking those calculations in pre-spreadsheet day
