Calculator Gadget January 14, 2008Posted by gordonwatts in computers.
Ok — I don’t usually do something like recommend software… but this was too good to pass up. For doing quick calculations on my computer I use Excel or some simple form of a calculator. While Excel is great – it is too heavy weight most of the time. And calculator apps – especially if I have to push buttons with the mouse – are slow and only good if I’m in Tablet mode.
I just discovered Calculatorium. It was first imagined as a side-bar gadget, something that will only run on Windows Vista. But you can download a stand-alone version as well now (they didn’t mention exactly where you can find that version to download ,however). But lets you define variables – “sz = 30*1024” and then “sz/30”. Knows trig too. And a hole lot of other operations as described in the documentation – unfortunately, it looks like you have to download and install to see the documentation.
